    Hello everyone,

    I am new to this forum, but not new to Amateur Photographer.
    In fact I collect old volumes and numbers from before I was born.
    The oldest volume is from 1893, a bound volume without covers or ads.

    My main interest is the development of the miniature camera in the 1920's, 1930's and 1940's.
    In this period I collect back numbers of AP, preferably with covers and ads.

    I am also working on a project involving British wartime photo magazines.
    AP is the most important magazine as it kept appearing on a weekly basis.
    Competing magazines like The Home Photographer which stopped in November 1939) and Miniature Camera Magazine appeared only on a monthly basis. So thanks to AP I can follow the war from week to week. This helps me to describe wartime developments like restrictions, rationing of film, tax increases, price regulations and the development of a black market for miniature cameras.

    In my collection I still have relatively big gaps in the period 1939-1941.
    If it is possible to obtain volumes/ numbers from this period, that would be most welcome.

    Kind regards,
    Roland Zwiers,
    The Hague
