The expanded and upgraded second edition of the „Nikon F Trilogy“ is in print. Ordered books will be delivered from the beginning of October 2021.

For the second and significantly expanded edition of the Nikon F Trilogy all chapters have been revised – if necessary. I have added new collector parts as well as new types which were not included in the edition of 2003. All tables were revised and numerous types were added. Many pictures (about 1,000 new pictures) expand the three books especially many pictures over half a page. Newly added are many reproductions of covers of brochures, instruction manuals and repair manuals. The 2021 edition, in English language, has 900 color pages with 1,850 pictures and a format of 21x30cm.

As part of the Nikon F Trilogy, this volume contains the Nikon F with many externally recognizable changes over the production period as well as the special camera models. The Nikkor story, a German specialty, is also described in detail. In total, 244 full color printed pages show 390 pictures, including 65 half or full page pictures. Almost 140 reproductions of the cover, or the content of brochures, instructions, and repair manuals, are included.

Uli has, once again, prepared a magnificent treatise on Nippon Kogaku, and the company’s evolution of its optical prowess. In Microscopes, The First 50 Years, he delivers the same intellectual depth and production value in this 388 page book as he has with his previous publications. His superb photographs illustrate in detail the evolution of Nikon’s contribution to unveiling what the eye cannot see.

Uli-san’s book sheds light into those “black” Nikon microscopes of that era. Who thought it would be so difficult just to classify them! I am sure the book will become the basis for Nikon microscope enthusiasts abroad.. It’s a win-win for all enthusiasts, not only collectors.

Wow what a superb book! I never thought I would see so much detailed information about the Nikon microscopes. I am sure that I speak for other NHS members when I heartily thank you for undertaking the research and sharing the results with us.

This book is more familiar with Nikon than any of the current Nikon employees. In particular, the 16-page description of Multiphot was a masterpiece.
