The Zeiss Historica Society was founded by Thomas Schreiner, Charles Barringer, Jr. and (as noted in some of the society's journals) Lawrence J. Gubas. Subcribed to by Zeiss enthusiasts all over the world, the "objectives of the Society are the study of, and exchange of information on the significant products and innovations of the Zeiss companies from their inception to the present." The Society was able to publish much interesting, scholarly material on many aspects of Zeiss drawing on personal member collections as well as individual research. With the concurrence of the modern Zeiss firms, Zeiss Historica also re-issued a few historic catalogs sent as premiums to members. The material offered here is new old stock and was acquired from the Society after it was disbanded. A portion of any sales will be donated to St. Judes as requested by the Society.

The Growth of Carl Zeiss Oberkochen 1947-2013 by Fritz Schulze ; Variations n Ernemann's 'Goddess of Light' by Larry Gubas; The 500 mm Fernobjektiv in a Panflex mount by Michael Wescott Loder ; Zeiss terrestrial telescopes illustrated by Larry Gubas; Zeiss Ikon Ikoflex, 1934 to 1945 by Simon Worsley ; Review of Larry Gubas's 'Zeiss and Photography' book by Robert Carter ; and Zeiss factories and sales offices prior to World War I by Larry Gubas.
