If you are a collector or looking to acquire one of Zeiss' cameras from that era, then there is hardly another book that covers it better.

THE source of information on pre-WWII Zeiss Ikon 11 July 2004
By "1handclapping" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
There are many books on camera collecting, but only one, real source in English on pre-World War Two Zeiss Ikon cameras. This is it.
Written in a somewhat stilted academic style, this book is never the less filled with information on Zeiss cameras. The high-contrast illustrations are clear, but could have been larger and more detailed. Worse, there isn't any index! It is organized by date and so you have to know when the camera you are interested in was first produced in order to locate it's description. Clearly, the author meant this book to be read cover to cover and not to be used as a reference title to be consulted for a piece of information on one camera at a time.
Despite its flaws this is the best title on the subject in English. Recommended.

Probably the best available, but limited. 3 July 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book on the prewar Zeiss Ikon cameras is better than the book on the postwar cameras. However, it does try to put too much on too few pages, so you end up with too little information about a lot of cameras.
For me this is an excellent book. It is detailed 28 Mar. 2015

For me this is an excellent book. It is detailed, available (despite the period of coverage), and it was received promptly and in very good condition.
