    2) Historical German Patents and Torsion Pendulum Clocks; Part I, DRPs 1877-1945 By Stevenson, Douglas K.

    Could someone provide the Publisher and Year Published for these two books.

    Sam,
    I checked ABE (antique book exchange) and see
    two copies available of the Oechslin book.
    1996, Neuchatel 2vol., 456 pp. total-study of astronomical clocks produced by 18th C. monks.. I didn't find a listing for the other book.

    The DRP book was published by Chapter 168 as a "special" prior to the 2003 Ward Francillon Time Symposium. It does not have an ISBN number but that should happen in the next edition.

    Copies are available from Chapter 168, contact pastimes400@juno.com.
