This truly comprehensive and practical new work is the first book to be devoted solely to the repair and restoration of the carriage clock, and as such will be greatly welcomed by professional and amateur alike. The Carriage Clock: A Repair and Restoration Manual describes the variety of movements found in the clocks that were produced by the thousand in France. (Many other countries produced variations but most followed the pattern established by the French workshops and factories.) The details of the simple timepiece, strikers, alarms, quarter repeaters and grande sonnerie are shown and discussed here. Over 220 detailed and accurate drawings display the operation of the more complex parts and the text describes symptoms, faults and corrections of each type of movement in turn, with other chapters on tools, major repair techniques, cleaning, maintenance and a list of suppliers of materials. Also included are eighteen colour photographs showing a selection of clocks and their movements. The carriage clock, which started life in the nineteenth century as an expensive luxury for the rich, is now one of the most popular of what might be called the 'quality' clocks and can, at last, claim a unique and invaluable guide dedicated to its repair and restoration.
