Miller's Clocks and Barometers Buyer's Guide - Derek Roberts
13.99 (30% off)
Clocks offer a combination of usefulness and beauty, and have been central features of many homes since the 17th century. "Miller's Clocks and Barometers Buyer's Guide", which has been fully updated for this edition with revised price and current market information, is a practical reference work for both enthusiasts and experienced collectors. The text covers a wide range of timepiece styles and mechanisms available, from elegant mahogany longcase clocks to enamelled brass carriage clocks, with a special section on the increasingly collectable field of American clocks. Every single item is pictured and has an up-to-date price guide. Special price guides concentrate on popular yet traditional antiques subjects and show thousands of examples of different items with descriptions and, of course, prices. This allows the collector to gauge subtle price differences due to location, condition, or provenance. The large number of items shown for each type - in this case clocks - means a collector is more than likely to find something similar to what they are trying to match or identify. Special features provide additional historical and collecting information on specific subjects.

Collectable Wristwatches - Rene Pannier
9.95
Pepe of Basingstoke, Hampshire England, 17 January, 2003 wrote "A lovely little book but deeply flawed. The author is clearly a collector for cosmetic value but has little to offer in the way of technical material. There are also some glaring omissions so the book cannot be relied on as a historical document. Having said all that, for the price it's a delightful..."
