new L&HR book- how good is it?

Postby rhallock » Tue Oct 24, 2017 12:14 pm

I see that a new L&HR color book has been published Oct 1st. subtitled "A Link in a Great Chain" About $40. Has anyone seen it and is there anything not covered in previous L&HR books?

Russ- It's been available as an E-book for several months- I have the download ($19.95). From Morning Sun, it's all full-page photos with caption info (not always accurate). It pretty much consists of photos that wouldn't fit in the earlier Morning Sun book from Jim Boyd (Jim had told me he had enough material for another volume). Good photos- all color, many never published; minimal new info.

Oh, BTW, it is not pretty much what wouldn't fit in the previous hard cover. Many from the first one were repeated for whatever reason and the other photos weren't avaible back then, most from Bob Wilt. Plenty of mistakes, incorrect locations ad incorrect information.
