{Detail}

For anyone who has an interest in binoculars, who collects them, deals in them, or who simply wants to buy a pair, this book is an absolute 'must'. Not only is it a most impressive coffee-table book but it has contributions, both academic and photographic, from nearly every binocular expert in the world.

The text is about 80% German and 20% English, though the 900 photographs have descriptions in English (often two or three paragraphs).

This book is vital for anyone who wishes to identify binoculars, date them, find out what they were used for, when and where they were used, and see what they should look like in perfect condition and complete with box, tripod, cradle and accessories. It is THE book of binoculars, whenever we traders discuss a binocular on the telephone we say, "Which page is it featured on in the SEEGER book?"
