For anyone nurturing a desire to own a grandfather (longcase) clock and views the finding every bit as exciting as the owning, here is the book for you. Anthony Ells takes the reader gently through the internals and externals of the English longcase clock without any pretense to provide instant expertise. Instead, an insight is given into what, literally, makes the beasts tick and gives an excellent understanding of what the prospective owner may be letting themselves into. Mr Ells also open up options for ownership by actually building or assembling a clock and provides some very useful contacts to get you going. This book delivers what it promises - hooray!

In the descriptions of how the movement works, I think labelled diagrams would have been far easier to follow. I think I might have to create my own from the text, otherwise it really is quite difficult. Quite a lot of terminology used is not actually in the glossary..

Found the book of great interest, and as a clockcase restorer this book is now part of my library of reference books.
Service & delivery first class, good to deal with.

My husband, who has many, many clocks and is 'looking after' someone's longcase, was very pleased with this. He has actually learnt a thing or two from it.

A very good book for starting out buying a grandfather clock. Pictures showing the internal
workings of a clock and styles.

We inherited a grand father's clock. It is functional, but since the item is of value, we wanted to have some knowledge before entrusting the clock to a professional clock-master.
The book contains many photos and detailed explanation, it is a pleasure to be informed of the world of antique clock. Whether one owns or considering to own, this book provides fundamental knowledge of how to care and repair the antique clock.
