Johann Ludwig Eberhardt and His Salem Clocks

by Frank P. Albright (Author)

Eberhardt (1758-1839) was master clockmaker in Salem for more than thirty-eight years. Albright attributes more than thirty clocks to Eberhardt, building his evidence by a diligent reading of the Moravian records and by a careful cataloging of the characteristics of each clock. He reconstructs Eberhardt's methods of clockmaking in precise detail from the inventories and the purchase invoices of equipment and materials, and he attempts to identify the cabinetmaker in each case.
