More details

Card covers, 52 pages, 292 watches described, many illustrated. Privately printed, Chicago, 1921.

The rare catalogue of the first of two Chamberlain watch collections. This was lent to the Art Institute of Chicago but was stolen in 1958, many of which have not since been seen - a tragedy. Major Chamberlain put together a second even larger collection. This was dispersed after his death by his widow Margaret.

Some shelf wear and browning, but much better than usually found.
