I was thinking about ordering this from the NAWCC store. Does it contain a lot of information or is it more of a coffee table type book? I love seeing pictures of clocks. Would like information on makers and their histories to be included. Has this been reviewed in the Bulletin? Thank you, Chris

Ms. Dapkus is a serious scholar. My understanding is that this book was 20 years in the making starting as joint effort with Snowden Taylor. Her writing style is not for the faint of heart.

That said, it's a very worthwhile book. I have it and would recommend it.
