VARKARIS Jane & CONNELL James E.

8882 Early Canadian Timekeepers

This remarkable work is essential reading for anyone interested in early Canadian timepieces and their makers. Two or Canada's foremost horological experts take an authoritative look at pre-1900 clocks and watches, and the artisans who made them, either commercially or as one-of-a-kind timepieces.
Lavishly illustrated, this bool surveys the making and selling of clocks and watches in Canada by over 125 persons, from the days of New France to the beginning of the 20th century. The stories of the men and women behind these exceptional creations are documented here for the first time.

BELL Jeanenne C.

8533 Pendant and Pocket Watches 1500-1950

Identification and values.
This book is divided in four time periods of one hundred years each, and one that spans the first 50 years or the twentieth century.
In each century, we will explore what was happening that influenced timekeeping and the development of the watch. Events such as the industrial revolution, expansion of the railroads, and even train wrecks are included. Focus is given on both pendant and pocket watches, because early watches were worn around the neck or the waist. Pants pockets did not come onto the scene until the 1625, and waistcoat pockets followed in 1675.
The purpose of this book is to help you to identify and evaluate a watch by its escapement, the country of origin, the type and style of the case, and the materials and methods of embellishment. Being able to associate these things with what was happening in the world usually helps one to remember them.

3592 The Dueber Hampden Story

The histories of most American watch factories of the nineteenth century reveal an inter-relantionship one with another. The history of the Dueber-Hampden Watch Company of Canton, Ohio is no exception. This company was the result of a logical, yet unique, consolidation of watch case and watch movement manufacturing enterprises. Oddly enough, the story of the two component units began in the same year, 1864.
