Paul-Henry Van Hasbroek goes into amazing depth and detail in this ultimate reference volume for all Leica devotees. A wonderfully large and highly illustrated work, it is a marvellous coffee table piece, and a delight to show anyone who has an interest in both Leica and the history of 35mm cameras. Without a doubt, Paul-Henry sums up the modern era of popular photography by offering student and artist alike a wonderful opportunity to view in wonder the rich legacy offered by Leitz. A must-have reference of lavish proportions, quality illustrations and informative text.

I have since patched up the missing section with a piece of "leather" that I had left over from recovering my Leica M3 (which I will post shortly).
It is very thorough, and has color pages that would make you consider cutting the photos (of the cameras) out and framing them. I have Erwin Puts "Leica Lens Compendium", which is of interest only from a historical perspective. After you read about your actual lenses, all that is left is history and philosophy.
If you’re into that kind of thing. Part of William Eggleston’s 300+ Leicas (and Canons). A Box, Light Sensitive Material and a Shutter. When Oskar Barnack started this side project, little did he know he would change the course of camera history. He worked for Ernst Leitz Optische Werke at the time
