I bought these when I was about 17 just in case I was asked to be a clapper/loader on a Panaflex film...:)

Yes, I have these in my bookcase. Haven’t read them for years.

These are Samuelson manuals, they produced a whole range of books in the 1970’s, many are now collectible. They once had one of the largest collections of lighting equipment in Europe, so publishing operating manuals was just a side line to supporting their rental business. Nearly every film made had at one time had Samuelson credits.

David Samuelson, if anybody doesn’t know him.
