No aspect of the trade goes uncovered in this distinctly American approach to these ancient processes, organized to be the perfect introduction to learning the tools, parts, and their uses, handed down for many generations. Here you’ll find hundreds of drawings, descriptions, and diagrams of many kinds of escapements, complete directions for making staffs, techniques for cleansing, pickling, and polishing all kinds of metals, a full list of necessary terms, and much more. For years Abbott revised this unmatched work, consulting the best authorities to provide the most accurate and comprehensive text.

Excerpt from The American Watchmaker and Jeweler: An Encyclopedia for the Horologist, Jeweler, Gold and Silversmith For some years there has been a demand among the watchmaking and jewelry fraternity of this country, for a book that would furnish them some information in regard to tools of American manufacture, drawings and descriptions of the various escapments, definitions of various words and phrases used in the trade, etc. There are upon the market several very valuable works, compiled by English, French and German authors, but these works are silent in regard to tools and methods distinctively American. Most of these works devote considerable space to the use of the bow lathe, the turns and other devices long ago relegated to the shades of obscurity by the American watchmaker. The ambitious workman is always in search of knowledge, in search of new ideas, new tools and new methods. Patient study, constant practice and ambition are requisite to become a proficient in any art. The demand for skilled workmen is constantly increasing, and a person wishing to thoroughly master any art, must be to a certain extent capable of self instruction. To be a proficient in any art a man must not be deft of touch alone but the head must also play its part. In America the watchmaker is somewhat differently situated from his European brothers.
