[SOLD] The Ultimate Asahi Pentax Screw Mount Guide, 1952-1977 (Worldwide)

Item for Sale
The Ultimate Asahi Pentax Screw Mount Guide, 1952-1977

Asking Price
$169

Item Location
Kearney, Nebraska USA

Item Description
Out of print for some time and a hard book to find. Why would a sane person pay this much for a BOOK? Read on...

Whether you want to know how to accurately evaluate lenses you come across, are a collector, buyer/seller, or just want to know what the Big Boys know - this is THE bible of Asahi Pentax screw mount lenses and accessories.

The information contained on just one of the lenses in this book allowed me to recognize an extremely scarce Takumar that came as part of a kit, and later to sell it to a collector for more than 3x the price of this volume. (And it appeared to be little different than a sibling lens that sells for a mere $15.)

I will include shipping to Continental U.S. buyers and will calculate shipping for buyers in other countries (email me for a quote and whether you want it QUICKLY or CHEAPLY).

Due to the invention of the Copy Machine, no returns will be accepted.

Bump for price reduction for PF members.
(It will bring more than this on that infernal auction site that I like to avoid.)

Agree..This is a great book... a must for Takumar "enthusiasts".
I "paid" for my first copy, then the author visited this site & advised that he had a few copies left, so I bought another, "personally signed to me" copy from him, for a fraction of the price!
Cheers, Pickles.
