"The Early Nikons an 'Inside' Look" by Joseph Higham

Reprinted from Nikon Journal 15, March 31, 1987 (reprints here)

Nikon member Joe Higham produced an extraordinary series of drawings for the NHS which showed the Nikon M-S series in great detail.  The article was published in installments, the drawing and PDF (the complete article) are from part 3 in the series.

The series included more than just illustrations, but provided a manual on how to service these cameras, in detail that was never provided in any official manual.  The drawings are quite beautiful, reminiscent of classic product illustrators like Daniel Rebour.
