Reviews

A very high quality production by Mellen Press targeted for academic libraries and meant to last a lifetime of hard use, which I am sure it will. This book contains makers from present day West Virginia as well as Virginia &. James B. Whisker is an excellent researcher well known to horologists for his research on Pennsylvania and Maryland clock and watchmakers&. The research within this Virginia list seems faultless&.pioneering and a must for any researcher who is studying a maker who might have worked in Virginia.
