by G. Russell Oechsle, Helen Boyce, and Collaborators
8-3/4" x 11-1/2" hardcover with dust jacket, 185 pages, and more than 350 black and white photos with some in color.

Alphabetized and indexed, this book is a user-friendly source to find quickly the clockmakers, casemakers, inventors, and merchandisers who worked in central and western New York State in the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries. The authors include more than 150 makers or merchandisers along with historical information about each entry.
Historically, New York clockmaking was considered an offshoot of the Connecticut clock industry. An Empire in Time documents the number and the breadth of activities of makers and merchandisers in upstate New York. These makers independently invented the first commercial perpetual calendar clocks, the first time recording clocks, unique tallcase and tower clocks, and many early electric and battery clocks, to name a few.
