The book covers the entire subject of clock making in good detail, and explains all of the basic mechanisms involved. By basic I mean just the parts that are essential to make a clock work. There is no coverage of hour chimes, alarms, or other complications, as they are called. The clocks covered are metal, not wood, although the theory applies.
Photos are black and white, but the figures are very easy to read. I would prefer color photos, but that's just aesthetics, as the book is very readable.
