Edward Duffield created some of the finest clocks made in America in the 18th century. While a small number of articles and book entries have been written about him, no comprehensive and detailed study of his life and work has yet been published.
Research and writing now is underway for such a book, with expected publication by the American Philosophical Society in Philadelphia. Edward Duffield was a member of this venerable institution founded by his friend Benjamin Franklin.
More than half of Duffield's sixty known clocks and instruments have been located and are in the process of being closely examined and professionally photographed.
The author earnestly hopes that more clocks, and additional important information about this Pennsylvania clockmaker's life, will surface before the book goes to press.
