The book uses no photos. The illustrations appear to be old-style wood engravings. Moreover there aren't many illustrations (~16 in a 444 page book). There is an interesting section called "LEGITIMATE SCALE OF CHARGES FOR WATCH REPAIRS" on page 434 that lists cleaning and repairing 21 Jewel watches for 3 to 5 dollars (I guess that was the going rate in 1921). So you get the picture - this book is merely a reproduction of the original 1921 text. This book is relevant as a historic example with some useful yet dated info and certainly only worth the asking price if that's what you're looking for.
art and for those who practice it as a hobby today, step-by-step instruction is most valuable. The text is beautifully written and
the ink-drawn figures are useful and clear. And this is not a xeroxed copy. Mike Barnett is famous for skillfully and meticulously scanning,
image processsing, editing, and binding of long-lost books that are difficult to find on the used-book market.
