In the post Les Pères Spirituels, below, I mentioned an issue of 35mm Photography magazine in which both Edouard Boubat and the Turnley brothers appeared. It turns out that that was the first issue of that magazine that our friend Jim Hughes edited, after a happy eight year stint at Camera 35. It was dated Winter 1976.
It's also a bit of a problem for Jim, because it's the only issue of the magazine he doesn't have. I know this is a bit of a long shot, lo these 36 years later, but—anyone have a copy of that issue they'd be willing to part with? Or know where one can be had?
If you do, leave a comment or contact me by email, and I'll pass the intelligence along to JH. Thanks.
UPDATE: Found! By reader Doug Chadwick. It was part of a lot of six issues on Ebay. I bought the lot so I can have a few sample issues of the magazine for my own library (I don't collect magazines, even the ones my own articles appeared in, but I have a motley of samples of different ones going back to the 1930s). I'll pass the Turnley/Boubat issue along to Jim after I sneak a peek at it.
Good find, Doug!
