    Published supplement of diagrams of many lenses wanted.

    Many years ago Modern or Popular Photography published a multipage supplement with cross sections of hundreds of lenses. Alas, over the years I have misplaced my original pages. Does anyone out there have a copy of those pages or possibly it is somewhere out there published on the WEB?
    thanks

    Buy a book. Cox' Photographic Optics.

    Oh, and by the way, OP, what do you expect to learn from a collection of tiny format lenses' cross-sections that will be useful?

    If I remember correctly, the supplement included lenses from tiny thru large format optics.

    History of the Photographic Lens by Kingslake is excellent. He was manager of a Kodak lens department during the 50's while they were producing Kodak Ektar Commercial and Wide Field lenses. His book goes all the way back to the 1800's in photographic lens design and production.

    The "tiny" in "collection of tiny format lenses' cross-sections" was to the size of the illustrations.

    If you believe you can, or you believe you can't... you're right.
