The American Watchmaker and Jeweler

Excerpt from The American Watchmaker and Jeweler: A Full and Comprehensive Exposition of All the Latest and Most Approved Secrets of the Trade The American Watchmaker and Jeweler is the initial issue of a series of Trade Manuals which we propose publishing us fast as they can be properly prepared. The value of books treating of the processes, manipulations and discoveries of the different trades and professions is recognized by every intelligent man. While no book can pretend to be a substitute for experience and natural ability, in the prosecution of any industry, there is unquestionably much information that can be told in a few moments, which might require years to arrive at by individual experiments. A guide of this kind should embrace the combined results of all discoveries and improvements in the art of which it treats, so as to keep pace with the progress constantly taking place. There are many good books relating to the different trades, and we consider that a liberal expenditure for such would prove profitable to every artisan. Such books are necessarily higher priced than common works. The main objection to most of them is that they contain much unimportant matter which swells them in Loth size and price, at the same time that it confuses the reader. We shall attempt to obviate this objection in Haneys Trade Manuals by giving in concise form all the really valuable information attainable on the subjects treated. Great care will be taken to make them reliable in every respect, and of real assistance to the reader. They will be almost wholly original, written by practical and experienced men. In order that they may have a large and general circulation, and be within reach of ever-person engaged in the occupation they treat of, Haney's Trade Manuals Will be sold at the lowest prices, considering the original Cost of preparation, manufacture of books, and the extent of the demand. Those which, from the limited extent of any trade, necessarily have but a small circulation, must of course be charged somewhat higher than those appertaining to more extensive interests.
