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 appeared.
Bob Frishman's research and writing now is complete for this book which will be published by the American Philosophical Society in 2024. Edward Duffield was a member of this venerable institution that was founded by his lifelong friend Benjamin Franklin.
Bob was honored to deliver the 2023 James Arthur Lecture at the annual symposium of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors. The lecture was a fully-illustreated preview of the book, and a video-recording of the presentation may be viewed here.
