This beautifully illustrated volume demonstrates why clocks were so important to colonial Americans. It catalogues approximately one hundred of the very finest American clocks dating from the colonial period to the Early Republic, or from about 1720 through 1785. In most instances, new high-resolution digital photography was employed to provide images of both public and private collection clocks, many never published in color and some never published in any fashion. Features lavish images of clock cases and movements demonstrating the beauty and technical achievement of the clockmaker's art. Essay topics include: clock accuracy, their role in society, workshop organization and business, clock case stylistic evolution, and others. (from the Hohmann website).
