CAMERAS From Daguerrotype to Instant Pic. by Brian Coe
A must for any camera lover!  No pictures - only GREAT GREAT illustrations! A detailed history with technical facts on the camera's evolution  -  All in a very well DESIGNed book --  It's out of print, but can be found here and there (second hand)

KODAK cameras  * The first 100 years by  Brian Coe
A complete close look into the 600 Kodak models of cameras that were manufactured from 1880. Well, to say again that it's a must for any collector? YES! great information like: original price, evolution, and quantity made of each (beside a pic. of any model) The book lacks the index.
THANKS to Ralph London who prepared an index for that book at Doug St. Denny's site: http://www.camprice.com
Published by HOVE  FOTO BOOKS  UK, 1987. SITE:http://www.hovebooks.com

An effort to show the early photographs of Jerusalem in those two books: the old city& the new one. BUT a cheap&low paper quality and printing did unjustice to such an important subject....
