Time Telling through the Ages by Harry C. Brearley, copyright 1919, is a comprehensive work covering the clock and watch industry, sponsered by Robert H Ingersoll & Bro., the Ingersoll Watch Company, which was in business from 1881 - 1922.
Since I collect various watches and clocks, this book was added to my book collection.
Harry Brearley writes in the preface, "In the midst of the world war, when ordinary forms of celebration seemed unsuitable, this book was conceived by Robt. H. Ingersoll & Bro., as a fitting memento of the Twenty-fifth Anniversary of their entrance into the watch industry, and is offered as a contribution to horological art and science. Its publication was deferred until after the signing of the peace covenant."

Was happy to receive this gift for my collection
