As we reported at the beginning of March Red Dot Photo Books, a subsidiary of London Leica dealer Red Dot Cameras, has taken over the Leica reference library from long-time publisher, Hove Collectors’ Books. The new company’s first reprint was the Leica Pocket Book 8th Edition which provides a comprehensive reference source for cameras, lenses and accessories up to and including the Leica M9.
Now the company has reprinted the very handy pocket edition of the Leica Accessory Guide — the current second edition. It contains comprehensive details of almost every Leica accessory for film cameras produced from the very earliest days of Leitz. If you don’t know your FISUMs from your SNHOOs, then this is the little book for you. The cross reference of all those obscure codes (which I’m sure William Fagan knows by heart) is one of the most useful features of the book.
