Product description

Synopsis

This title discusses the origins, style and development of domestic brass dial clocks made between the early 17th and end of the 18th centuries. This book provides an examination of eight day and 30-hour clocks with hundreds of illustrated examples of longcase, bracket, lantern derivatives, hook-and-spike and hooded clocks. It examines the development and distribution of each, with a complete re-examination of prototype 30-hour clockwork and the work of clocksmiths, in a addition to discussion on the recognition of styles of the various regions/countries. This title should have a wide appeal as the author assumes no prior knowledge of the subject from his reader and concerns himself exclusively with a discussion of accessible clocks and not the rare museum pieces.
