From left: cover of 39-4, sledge lowered over hummocks in the Arctic, a CDV by Luigi Fiorillo, book about finding Scott’s lost photographs, Riga Minox, Kodak at the North Pole, John Morden and Shannon Perry at the November meeting, and John Linsky at the December Show and Tell.

As befits the chilly weather just now, this issue features articles on both the Arctic and Antarctic. Explorers Perry and Scott are covered, century old photos by Scott discovered recently in the Antarctic are the substance of a book review by our editor and are illustrated in a separate article too.

Thomas Ritchie talks about the early use of photography for book illustrations using Arctic explorations as an example. Past president, lecturer, photographer and 3D expert Stan White offers his latest collector’s theme on zoom cameras. We have a rare Riga Minox to display and discuss in the regular “Treasure” column.

The November and December meetings are reported, Shannon Perry receives a research reward from Awards Chairman John Morden at the November meeting. And this issue closes with an 1896 Kingston Ontario newspaper article about an early colour (color) photography process and a query about a CDV made by an Italian photographer, Luigi Fiorillo.
