First published in 1953, this authoritative work, which was based on a lifetime's practical experience, has been in continuous demand and is recognized as a classic work on the subject. Its great strength lies in the descriptions and principles of watch and clock construction in an easy-to-follow manner. The book opens with a description of the various tools and materials essential for good work; details are then given concerning the construction and repair of the various types of movement, trains, motion work and gearing, the various forms of escapement, keyless mechanisms, balances and balance springs, pendulums, striking and repeating mechanisms, calendars, chronograph work and chronometers. The subject of cleaning is given careful consideration, while filing and turning, the two most important operations in watch and clock making, are given special attention. The construction of specialist tools for repair work, many of which were designed by the author, is explained in some detail and illustrated by working drawings. In addition, an appendix lists the various causes of failure and bad time-keeping.

This book is a 476-page survey of furniture craftsmen working in Chester County, Pennsylvania from its founding in 1682 to 1850 when there was a recognized decline in the handicraft tradition. The settlers included predominently English Quakers for the first half century, after which numbers of Scotch-Irish Presbyterians, Welsh Baptists, Irish Quakers, and Germans became equally important and, later, had major influence in the county. The hand made furniture from the county has certain distinguishing features which are explained in the well-researched text, and illustrated in 175 photographs. Hundreds of cabinetmakers and other craftsmen are profiled in detail from their contemporary public records. The work is an important reference for furniture and social historians alike.
