For nearly 80 years, MINOX subminiature cameras have enjoyed a unique reputation. Its extraordinary small size virtually predestined the MINOX for secret operation. No spy thriller worth its salt could ignore this valuable prop. But this should not blind us for the fact that the MINOX is a real milestone of photographic technology.

Previously unpublished photos and data make this book a standard reference for any photographer and illuminate a fascinating chapter of pre- and postwar technical history. This book is based on years of careful research and offers the MINOX fan or collector a reliable reference works on this pioneering camera.
