    "Saunier's Treatise on Modern Horology', by Claudius Saunier, covers the verge escapement design and repair for about 30 pages, but has little on the fusee. It's an expensive book when you can find a copy.

    'Watch Repairing, Cleaning and Adjusting' by F. J. Garrard is a 215 page book on repair and covers the verge and fusee in passing. It's an inexpensive book and reprints are readily available.

    Hope that helps.

    Regards,
    Mike
