    New D'Agostini book on German/Austrian lens makers in the 19th Century

    This is a follow on from his book covering French makers some years ago.
    This one is from 2017 and I have not seen details of it yet.
    It seems to follow the general plan of the previous book, but I hope editing hasn't been forgotten this time.

    The main selected makers/innovators given chapters are the following:

    Voigtlander
    Petzval and Dietzler
    Busch
    Steinheil
    Zeiss

    There is an 11 page chapter on "other makers" which seems to me to be rather brief. I don't know who is included yet.

    But I have found other makers here. Note that Goerz is included as one of these !!
