    Hello, years ago I was gifted by friends and relative a bunch of old Clock Books, of which 3 of them came from my uncle of which one of the books he gave me belonged to my Great-Grandfather who had used the book to learn how to build a clock from a kit back in the 1920s (the clock is pictured below), the other 2 clocks were just bought from a used book store, the other 2 books given to me by my old Sunday School Teacher, one is an anthology book showing different various timepieces that were made between 1879 to 1969, the other is a childrens book that introduces children to time telling, and clocks in general.

    See pictures below to see the books in question.

    No, there's no question, I was just sharing some old Clock Books I have in my collection and seeing if you guys were interested in seeing them, and also some of the history that went with them and or if you were familiar with any of these books (specifically the first 4 books).

    I have the first two of these, which are good general reference books, albeit that knowledge has moved on a bit since Allan Lloyd’s book came out

    That's cool, I kind of figured that the clock and watch repair book was probably outdated but its still a great family heirloom though since it was my great-grandfather's book.
