I did a short review of Corrado D'Agostini's book: Photographic Lenses of the 1800′s in France.

Like everything, it has some flaws. I do however really recommend it...

Thanks for your post. I've tried multiple times to email the author with no response....

I downloaded the Darlot pdf file thats for sale on the net, decent information.

Has anyone ever tried in inter-library loan on this? I may go down to the National Archives library here and give that a try. They've brought in some rather unusual things for me before.

Edit: never mind, Worldcat isn't giving me any hits, and no google search results for that ISBN number.

Eddie, yes you have this book... :) We bought it at the same time.

What I could do is, next time there is a big antique camera show and the author is present, just buy a couple of books and send them to Eddie. I am sure shipping 5 or 10 books to one address in the US and redistribute them from there is cheaper and easier than sending the books one by one from Europe to various addresses.

Well, I have a copy of this book now, too. Still available from the very charming Corrado!

Maurits' review appears to very on-the ball, after a quick scan.
Certain not comprehensive, but very good coverage for items which have made their way into the book.

Can someone give me contactinformation (address, phone number) of Corrado D'Agostini? I read he has the book still available and I would like to buy it know. I tried to contact him through his website, but without response.

He is a nice guy but his website doesnt function well sending emails. Try him direct via Steven's address above. The book can also be purchased in the US - if thats helpful - from camerabooks.com
