    It's already been noted in the Horological Books section. But it's very much worth noting "up here" as well that Philip E. Morris' volume, American Wooden Movement Tall Clocks 1712-1835, is now available! Visit www.heritageparkpublishing.com for more information. Make sure to look at the "Sample Pages."

    I've no financial or personal interest in the volume. Rather, its appearance is Good News Indeed for all who share a fascination with the woodies.

    My copy arrived yesterday as well. It's not just of a high quality. It's extraordinary. Indeed, I'd have expected such an unusually fine volume to have cost much more. Congratualtions -- and appreciation -- to the author!

    I received my copy of Mr. Morris' wooden works tall clocks book at Christmas. Haven't been able to put it down ! Excellent !
    Being from New Hampshire, I really like the section on New Hampshire wooden movement clocks. He mentions the premier builder of them: Jesse Emory. I live in Weare NH myself, and in fact, live only a couple hundred yards from his original property. This was according to a story of his clockmaking history that I once found on the Internet. I tried to find it again so I could post the link here, but I was unsuccessful... Seems to be unavailable now...

    The link below details a reproduction Jesse Emory clock that can be "made to order"... VERY pricey though....
