A new, comprehensive and well illustrated German publication about precision regulators used in Germany as well as made in Germany from 1730 to 1940. The author defines Germany as the area controlled by the Holy Roman Empire which existed until 1806. The author has amassed a wealth of information and photographs so several volumes are planned as below:

Volume 1
Astronomical clocks in Germany from 1730-1770
The early period, English precision pendulum clocks and the English influence
Astronomical clocks in Germany from 1770 until 1840 (part 1)
The development of the German precision pendulum clock
Volume 2
 Astronomical clocks in Germany from 1770 until 1840 (part 2)
  The development of the German precision pendulum clock
Volume 3
Astronomical clocks in Germany from 1840 to 1940 (part 1)
The dominance of the German precision pendulum clock
Volume 4
Astronomical clocks in Germany from 1770 to 1840 (part 3)
The development of the German precision pendulum clock
Astronomical clocks in Germany from 1840 to 1940 (part 2)
The dominance of the German precision pendulum clock
Volume 5
A Volume dedicated to the Riefler business

This looks set to become, together with Derek Roberts' 3 volumes, the standard reference work on precision pendulum clocks and an essential reference book for enthusiasts.

Volume 1 was published in March 2015, volume 2 in July 2017, volume 3 in December 2013 and volume 4 in July 2017.

The author has several more volumes planned.
