Publisher Comments:

The magnificent artistry and craftmanship of eighteenth and nineteenth century clockmakers in the South has been recorded in this lavishly illustrated volume.Entitled Dixie Clockmakers, the 192-page volume traces the development of clockmaking and horological history below the Mason-Dixon line and documents the works of those artisans who designed and constructed some of the world's finest timepieces.Author James W. Gibbs focuses primarily upon clockmaking in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and the District of Columbia, but attention also is given to eight other states. Included are some 60 photographs illustrating outstanding examples and details of Southern clockmaking.The first in-depth study of Southern clockmakers, the volume also lists every known clockmaker and watchmaker in the South during the two centuries, along with nomenclature common at the time, and advertisements used by individual craftsmen.ABOUT THE AUTHORJames Gibbs, who served as president of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors from 1961 to 1963, has written widely on the subject. He is also the author of Buckeye Horology, a study of Ohio clock and watchmakers.
