A title by Chauncey Jerome, who
was a Clockmaker in the early 1800s. He made a fortune
selling his clocks, and his business became enormous.
Deciding to go into business for himself, Jerome began to
make cases, trading them to Terry for wooden movements. In
1850 he formed the Jerome Manufacturing Co. as a joint-stock
company with Benedict & Burnham, brass manufacturers of
Waterbury. His future should have been secure but in 1855 he
bought out a failed Bridgeport clock company controlled by
P.T. Barnum, which wiped him out financially, leaving the
Jerome Manufacturing Co. bankrupt.

Written in m Jerome's simple language, and in a bungling
manner, he has told his story of his life.
As he said, he is no author, but claims a title which he
considers nobler, that of a "Mechanic." Being possessed of a
remarkable memory, and able to give a minute account and
even the date of every important transaction of his whole
life, he distinctly remembers events which took place when
he was but a child, three and a half years old, and how he
celebrated his fourth birthday. He could relate many
instances of his boyhood and later day experiences if his
health, and strength would permit. It had been no part of
his plan to boast, exaggerate, or misrepresent anything, but
to give only the "plain facts.
