Wallace Heaton Blue Books
Wallace Heaton Ltd "BLUE BOOKS" were in-house catalogues and pricelists published at yearly intervals from 1949 to 1972. They list practically all still and cine cameras and their accessories, as well as major and minor bits and pieces available at the time, from projectors, flash-guns, enlargers and lenses to cable-releases, film wallets, cassettes, slide-frames and user-materials.
Each instrument and item is described in some detail, prices are given for each item and illustrations show exactly what each major piece looked like. The years covered by the "BLUE BOOKS" are the years which turned out to be the classic years for "Collector’s Items".
