This section is from the book "Early English Furniture & Woodwork", by Herbert Cescinsky, Ernest. The late seventeenth and eighteenth-century long-case and bracket clocks are such integral features of the English furniture of their period, and their acquirement offers such a fascinating and profitable field to the collector, that some mention and description of them is necessary, if this book is to be comprehensive.

English Domestic Clocks. Herbert Cescinsky, Malcolm R. Webster. PRICE: £2. 0 Hardback.

This book is one of the classic works on British clockmaking and remains by far and away the best account of the development of the main types of clocks since the middle of the seventeenth century. Perhaps the secret of the book's success is that it was written by experts who were themselves keen collectors and, therefore, covered in depth the type of clocks available to collectors. They steered clear of the trap of discussing one-off historically interesting examples which collectors may never see and will certainly never own. They explained in lucid English just how clocks work, the results of the introduction of the pendulum, and the subsequent development of longcase (grandfather), bracket and lantern clocks. Generations of clock enthusiasts have learned to date a clock from the invaluable illustrated chronology of hands, dials, spandrels and to learn to judge the quality of a wide variety of clocks. It is, therefore, the ideal companion for anybody interested in the subject.
