About this title

Synopsis:

The Longcase clock is arguably the most interesting and at the same time useful antique available to the collector. This is the most detailed and copiously illustrated book yet written on the subject. This completely revised edition, with new illustrations and a substantially rewritten text with recent findings, is an important reference that explains how the Longcase clock is almost unique in blending fine examples of cabinet work and clock mechanism in one piece. The large number of photographs on specific aspects of the mechanisms and case designs, together with an unpadded text, make the book readily understandable. Some of the more difficult mechanisms are further clarified by line drawings. The range of cabinet work and the evolution of clockwork over the 150 years covered is immense. It comprehensively illustrates the wide choices available while drawing attention to the many pitfalls which the practical nature of this important reference will help collectors avoid." - publisher.
