Publishers full description of Title :

The first fully-pictorial survey of antique clocks, each of almost 300 pages being a self-contained photograph with textual explanations of aspects such as age, functions and quality. Separate sections cover longcase clocks, hooded clocks, bracket clocks and lantern clocks, as well as spring-and weight-driven wall clocks. Each text section points out plus and minus points in the illustrated example, which helps the novice differentiate and identify quality features. Useful for collector and novice alike, but also of particular assistance to restorers. Published by Robert Hale.
