Over a decade John Glanville and Bill Wolmuth undertook an important horological project for the British Museum. This involved establishing a representative collection, for the Museum, of twentieth-century domestic mechanical clocks made in England and Wales using industrialized manufacturing methods. This remarkable book is the culmination of their efforts. Wide-ranging in its coverage, it will be a key reference tool for horologists, horoligical students, collectors, and antiques and clock dealers. It provides a comprehensive history of each significant manufacturer, including the principal people involved and covers the various mechanical clock movements that were produced. Previously unpublished research about the manufacturers, the clocks they made and the dates when they were manufactured is presented. Finally, this book informs readers how they can identify and date almost all of the clocks they are likely to encounter.

About the Author

John Glanville, a civil engineer by profession, was born in 1932 at the time when the great pre-war resurgence of English clockmaking was coming to life. After graduating from Imperial College, London, and working for many years as a practising civil engineer, he retired and then had more time for his other interests. The project with Bill Wolmuth to form a collection of twenty-century domestic mechanical clocks for the British Museum was the subject of the Dingwall-Beloe Lecture presented by John at the Museum in 2009. Dr Bill Wolmuth is based in London and works as an independent consulting engineer. He studied civil engineering at Leeds University and gained his doctorate there in 1980. He has been a keen amateur horologist for more than thirty years, primarily interested in nineteenth-century French and twentieth-century English clocks. In 2011, John Glanville and Bill Wolmuth were presented with the Dr Alan Shenton Award for their two-part article published in Antiquarian Horology in 2010 on 'Clockmaking in Twentieth-Century England & Wales'.
