    The original compendium page has been gone for a while.
    I have found the new page here, but the pictures are gone.

    https://cookeoptics.com/compendium/

    Hopefully Cooke would make the page as good as the original.

    Yrs, it’s gone more than for six months, I was looking for info comparison with Ivan Rose writing about TTH in the last D’Agostini book. Both sources are far away from completion with all respect to work done by authors.

    Yes, that GB book is about 19th century lenses. Cooke lenses flourished from 20th century, although I expected much more from that book….

    The Compendium just starts with "The first Cooke lens was made from an elegantly simple design, patented in 1893, known as 'The Cooke Triplet Patent'. It's worth noting that Taylor, Taylor & Hobson made camera lenses from 1886, before they made lenses under the Cooke name, and made some lenses without the Cooke name well after 1893.

    The Compendium does seem to be missing some lenses of significance, like the Cooke Achromatic Portrait Lens that was favored by Stieglitz during his Pictorialist period.

    Is there a current link for this? The original one doesn't resolve to anything but the home page and the About Us has changed.
