Hello all. I am wondering if there are books, websites or other publications where I can find high resolution photographs of movements in the 18th century. Particularly the gearing interaction. They need not be from top tier clocks/watches. Thanks!

what exactly are you looking for and for what purpose? Many of these publications will have copyright if you are intending to republish the photos.

Anyway here are some photos....i might have a "few" movements sitting around I can photograph depending on what you are looking for.

Here's some wheels from a longcase by Charles Gretton circa 1710.
