‘Grandfather clocks are of enormous interest today, for their individual beauty and craftsmanship and for the generations of history – national, local and family – that they embody. This highly illustrated book (with over 400 photographs) gives detailed comments on a series of clocks representative of all periods and types, concentrating on those most likely to be seen – with some surprises thrown in for experts who think they’ve seen it all before.
No other book studies casework in such detail. Those wishing to improve their knowledge of longcase clocks, and their ablilty to indentify the good, and the bogus, will find here a wealth of guidance, the fruits of long experience.’
A signed copy of a comprehensive work by Brian Loomes; BA, Hon FBHI, that is becoming increasingly hard to find.

Book condition: Very Good.
