Just picked up, off E*ay this month, a set of American photography(Feb. 1938-Jan.1939).
Also some Minicams from 1940. The articles are amazingly detailed, even about processes that have disappeared. An a lot of camera information(both famous and infamous) from just the adds. Also got some new information about my "obsession"( }:^)> )- Harry Champlin.
Will keep shopping.

A local writer and book collector sold me a huge collection of photo magazines going from the thirties to the sixties. It became an albatross - shipping charges were the killer. I ended up giving them away to a local photographer who has a lot of room. Going through them and comparing prices to the times (adjusted using census data concerning income) showed that some of that hardware was as dauntingly expensive then as Alpas are today. And the various photogaphic trends, of course, was deeply interesting.
