This is a rare find – the original camera repair book by Isaak Maizenberg.
The book was written by the preeminent expert in the field. Isaak Maizenberg started writing books and articles on the Soviet cameras in the early 60’s. His books sold quickly and his articles in Sovetskoe Foto were a great relief from the massive propaganda the magazine was all about.

The 3rd edition of his book had 440 pages; it was published in the USSR (Ukraine) in 1964. This edition was a foundation for his well-known English book, All You Need to Know About Design and Repair of Russian Cameras published in 1996. Unfortunately, this book is almost impossible to find now.

The book covers design and repair the following Soviet cameras:
Moskva-2, -4, -5
Lubitel, Lubitel-2, Sputnik
Smena (many models), Vesna
FED, FED-2, FED-3, Zarya
Zorki, Zorki-2, -S, -2S, -3, -3M, -3C, -4, 5, -6, Mir
Kiev-2, -3, -4
Zenit family
Other cameras and common lenses are described as well.
Since the Zorki and FED are exact Leica II
