Brian Long, staying in Japan, has added some information which most other authors not easily come by, mostly related to the Japanese situation. He has gathered pictures to illustrate his book from local sources as well as having included his own pictures of cameras. Some interesting advertising material is also included.
The book has a nice layout and is good reading, including a few advices on camera collecting, camera storage, and camera caretaking in general.

A nice book prefaced by a very health statement to the effect that collecting cameras is a hobby, and should therefore not be an occupation that consumes vast sums of money. I enjoyed the book but my only criticism is that it meanders a bit, without any apparent logic defining what's in and what's out.
