Virginia Clockmakers and Watchmakers, 1660-1860
|Author: ||Whisker, James|
Lists those who made ore repaired clocks and watches in Virginia from the earliest days to the Civil War and shortly thereafter using US Census data, court records tax lists, newspaper ads, and county histories.
A very high quality production by Mellen Press targeted for academic libraries and meant to last a lifetime of hard use, which I am sure it will. This book contains makers from present day West Virginia as well as Virginia &. James B. Whisker is an excellent researcher well known to horologists for his research on Pennsylvania and Maryland clock and watchmakers&. The research within this Virginia list seems faultless&.pioneering and a must for any researcher who is studying a maker who might have worked in Virginia.
