Originally published in 1966 and until now out of print, the NAWCC has obtained the rights to republish this book at the request of Joe Cohen, who has found it extremely useful to the students in his clock appraisal classes. Phil Balcomb originally wrote this book in response to the need for a single-volume presentation of basic clock styles. The book contains 144 line drawings by Mr. Balcomb, and it was designed to stimulate interest in beginning collectors. It presents a broad overview of clock styles as well as highlights and very interesting topics from the horological world.
