The Navy Training Course "Photographers Mate 3 & 2" is available for reading on line at:

https://www.google.com/books/edition/_/0-uv8VmxlJkC?hl=en&gbpv=1

There is an enormous amount of photographic information including chapters on the Graphic Press and Graphic View cameras. One of the best books ever for these great cameras.

Thanks to FarmPhoto for this cite to wonderful information for the view cameras.

I wrote the view camera articles 20 years ago, and used what I could find at the time. The images of the cameras in my articles are images of some of my cameras. Some of them are displayed in our living room. I still adore the wonderful cameras. I highly recommend reading the info at FarmPhoto's citation for some great reading.

The info in my old article remains accurate, but more info has been posted on the view cameras since my article. For a while, my article was the only real source for info. I wrote it because it was needed. In it, I jokingly said that the carrying case was made of a "mysterious" substance called "Vulcanoid." It was just a mysterious name that Graflex used. Subsequent articles by others have parroted the "mysterious" nature of "Vulcanoid." ! We info nerds lean on each other, and my attempted joke has fostered the continued use of the adjective. Oops! Have fun!

Best to all!
