I recently received my copy of The Longcase Clock Reference Book Vol 1 & 2 by John Robey. In my opinion this is the best of all the books published on the longcase clock. The photography is outstanding.

I have also recently received my copy of Longitude at Sea in the Time of Berthoud and Motel . Preface by David S. Landes Harvard University Translated by Anthony Turner. If you are interested in Berthoud & Motel this is the book. The photography is outstanding.

I agree that Robeys book is great. By the way he is the owner of mayfield books, a publishing house specialising in horology. He has a dozen or so titels of high quality.

Check out his website at

http://www.mayfieldbooks.freeserve.co.uk/

The books are all well produced.
