"Dutch Antique Domestic Clocks, ca. 1670-1870 and some related examples"
By Dr. J.L. Sellink.

Bronxville; Clock Trade Enterprises: 1973.
Edition limited to 1000 copies.

A heavily illustrated study of Dutch domestic clocks, based on the collection in the Oegstgeest Museum of Clocks. Clocks are fully described and grouped by locality, and within those divisions in roughly chronological order. In almost all cases both cases and movements are illustrated; there are also some reproductions of period paintings of Dutch interiors showing clocks. A weighty but not ponderous volume- indeed, it moves brightly through its subject like a horologically-obsessed Keebler elf. Hardcover. 8"x11", 367 pages, hundreds of black & white illustrations, dust jacket; bibliography.


    The clockmakers' buying guide   (1976)

"A where-to-buy-it directory. The GUIDE lists hundreds of resources for parts and services for clockmakers."


The guide was not a success and was eventually sold to the American Watchmaker's Institiute.
