The Pentax Manual (1975)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
The Pentax Manual (1975)

Asking Price
$18

Item Location
Annapolis, MD (United States)

Item Description
The Pentax Manual by Joseph D. Cooper, ISBN 0817494391.

Hard cover book describing practically everything that anyone knew about the 35mm and 67 Pentax system up to 1975, including voluminous details on every Takumar known to science and all genuine Pentax accessories for thread mount 35mm SLRs and 6x7.

It describes all of the hardware of this period, including now-obscure accessories, and how to use it. The book explains SMC, showing examples with and without it. There is a lot of discussion about focus, depth of field, film selection, etc.

There is nothing here about 645, K-mount, the 110 system or, of course, digital.

Book is excellent, dust jacket is fair/good. Only $18 shipped to the lower 48. Amazon has only one copy available (used) and they want $24 for theirs plus shipping!

How can a Tak lover live without this?

Take off!!

Yes, if it doesn't sell within the US, I'll consider a sale to our northern neighbor.

Sold pending payment. Also have 2 offers if first customer doesn't come through. I will move this item to "sold" once payment has been received.

Thanks to all who responded.
