The book reviews American antique clocks only. You cannot tell this from the cover or the write up.

I must of clicked on the wrong book. What good is a price guide to 1985 prices if it gives you nothing more than the price?! That's all you get here. Save your money and put it toward a clock!

If you know nothing about clocks and want to learn more before you seriously invest time and money, this is not a bad reference. Ignore the title (it was published in 1985!) and most probably worthless as a price guide...and unless you are from California and can't read...it only covers "American" made clocks. It's an easy reference and somewhat informative...for beginners.
