I was looking through that recently with the owner of a local antique shop.  I was amazed at how many cameras were covered in it.  I may get an outdated one off eBay just to use as a reference.  A new one is quite expensive, I could get a nice camera for that price.

I have the Eastman House's 500 Cameras which showcases the most important models in history. It's nowhere as huge as the McKeowns but an interesting read at an affordable price.

I once handled the big guide and I must say the amount of information in it is just mind numbing!

thanks for this, I just bought a copy from Amazon US for $40 which a friend will bring over to the UK for me in their suitcase in the spring.

Amazon.uk wants over £400 for it!
