My purchase of books on antique cameras

Books on early cameras add to my understanding of early cameras and Photographic processes. This week I bought two books by the Kodak Museum and one relating to a picture history of photography.

The books cover everything from the first fifty years of snapshot photography to the earliest daguerreotype and wet plate cameras.
Snapshot photography dates back to 1888 when Geirge Eastman introduced his Kodak camera. It was a simple box camera that came loaded with a 100 exposure film. When the pictures had been taken the camera was returned to Kodak for developing and printing and for a new film to be loaded. Simple !
You press the button, we do the rest was the slogan.
I am keen to add to my collection of mahogany and brass cameras dating back to the birth of photography in 1829.
