Langdon, John E.
Clock & Watchmakers in Canada, 1700 to 1900.

Toronto Anson-Cartwright Editions: 1976.

As Langdon points out in his introduction, until the 20th century the line between watchmakers, jewelers and silversmiths was often blurry at best -many artisans did a bit of each job and took work as it came to their door. This massive compilation of names, dates, places and professions was gleaned from census records, advertisements, directories, documents, newspapers, and other sources.

Softcover. 6"x9", 195 pages fine.
