Does anyone out there have a copy of Kathleen H. Prichard's, “Swiss TimePiece Makers: 1775-1975” that they would part with? Please let me know. I've gone to a dozen book sources and even have a search engine looking but no joy. John

Last time I saw them on line they were going for very serious money. I can look up a few things for you in my copy.

The copy write on that book has never expired. The rights are of a Swiss publisher, therefore copies or photocopies cannot be distributed.

Lots of feelers out from lots of people on those books. And yes, if you do find them they'll probably be with four digit pricing for the set of two. I think I may have seen one of the pair offered for 1/2 way to four digits a few years ago. Ouch! Good luck.

John, I take you just want a copy for yourself, I know how frustrating it can be when such books come onto the market for such high prices. Those selling, then know, only too well there are those who will buy them. I wanted a copy of John Pearpoint Morgans book on his watch collection, I am still saving up and at the moment I think I have enough for the first 10 pages. (I do have the cheap copy) We know all that, so why am I writing, I was just wondering if there is one particular piece of information you wanted, I could, maybe, help. I have a copy of "A Region in Time" 1700-2007 and there are many of the Swiss firms in there, and I have "The Territory ofNeuchätel" both in English, plus one or two others in German. Please feel free to PM me if you like.

Regards,

Allan.
