I just received a book from MacFarland & Co Publishers, the title of the book is the title of this thread:
It a book that covers early History of Nippon Kogaku all the way up to the period when the first importer in the USA was sold to EPOI in 1953.
I am up to page 57, and I tell you, I have been enjoying it to no end, being Nikon Kiu of course
Every Nikon fan out there should read this book, it's full of historic facts and pictures.
AND HERE IS THE BEST PART:
I know the Author, Michael Wes Loder is a fellow member of NHS. If you find a question you need to ask him about his book, post it here and I will invite him to answer it in person.
