    I’m looking to buy or borrow a copy of “Electric Clocks and Watches 1840 - 1960” by Eliot Isaacs FBHI. I’ve searched online and there appear to be no copies available anywhere in the world! Clearly this book appealed to a handful of specialists and it was only printed in small numbers.

    Thanks for any leads,

    Phil

    There is a copy of this book in the Ipswich (UK) branch of BHI. You can contact the library by email at library@ipswichbhi.org.uk (the book is item No. 226 in their catalogue).

    I expect there is also a copy in the BHI main HQ. in Newark (telephone 01636 813795)

    Hope this helps.

    I eventually received a reply from the BHI stating that their library books are not available to non-members.

    I am still looking to buy or borrow a copy of this book.
