Author: Roland Schellin
ISBN: 978-3-9822340-7
Release: April 2022

Layout: 260 pages, full-colour, hard cover

In 2001, Roland Schellin published his first book about the intreguing range of Minifon wire and tape recorders, that were once used by spies and intelligence services for eaves­dropping on secret conversations. At the time, it was by far the best source on this topic, that not only described the devices in great detail, but also the company and its successors in a wider context.

In April 2022, Schellin succeeded in surpassing his own book, by releasing a complete rewrite with a lot of new information, stories, brochures, circuit diagrams and detailed new high-quality photographs, all in full-colour. This hard-cover book has 260 pages and contains hundreds of photographs, all in the best possible quality. A must-have for everone who is interested in the early history of miniature recording devices.
