Military Binoculars Book by Hans Seeger

Military Binoculars Book by Hans Seeger

Ref: binbk


Title: Binoculars for Land, Air and Sea (but known as the military binoculars book by Seeger)

Author: Hans Seeger

Format: hardback

Edition: 4th, extended and revised

Other: 540 pages, 900 photographs and illustrations


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?"

Binoculars and People

Binoculars and People

Ref: binbk-2

Softback, 208 pages. 1st Edition, 2008

The most enticing book I have ever seen about binoculars, beautifully written and illustrated. The theme of the book is very much (I paraphrase) - binoculars are for people, they have personal meaning, they tell their own story about their owners and about the history of leisure and war.

Subjects covered are: History, Search & Rescue, Military, Astronomy, Nature, Entertainment, Choosing and Repairing, Collecting.

In addition to the main text, each chapter has shaded sections - some for technical information and some with personal stories about binoculars. So you can read this book at whichever level you wish.
