The title of this book is Year Clocks. The intent of this booklet, as quoted from it, is to "describe them in detail so that the clockmaker may receive precise information concerning the peculiarities of their construction in general, and about the advantages and disadvantages of the various constructions in particular, insofar as they have come into use in comparatively recent times".

This booklet was originally published in Deutsche Uhrmacher Zeitung in 1926. It then was translated by Joseph Sternfeld and serialized in The American Horologist and Jeweler beginning in the January 1950 issue. It is now being reprinted as an e book.

If you work on these clocks, then this booklet will be of great interest to you. This book will more than pay for itself with the new information that you can apply to your present repairing techniques.
