    Wow! Stand Back In Amazement!

    I just received my five (yes five) volumes of Fred Friedberg's books on the American Illinois Watch Company.

    Apart from some amazing research, and new discoveries, we have articles, adverts and beautiful photos.

    Of course I have not read all 5 volumes yet, but what I have read and scanned is AWESOME.

    Great work Fred - KUDOS to you, and thanks for devoting so much effort for us all.

    Wish I could have afforded to buy it. Saw it laid out, it looked magnificent.

    I bought my set a few months ago, very much looking forward to reading them!

    I'm sure I'll be looking out my front window a lot over the next day or two (stalking my mailman, LOL!).

    I hope this is acceptable - no link to commercial site
    For information about the book set, you can reach the author Fred Friedberg directly at 714.552.3524 or at Fred@illinoiswatches.com”.

    I just got my copy two days ago, and I love the entire presentation. The inclusion of so much original documentation and advertising makes this an incredible reference. But what really impresses me, and makes the set so enjoyable to read, are all of the extras and sidebars distributed throughout. It seems like every page has some fascinating nugget of information.
