Alfred Watkins exposure meters

I am researching Alfred Watkins exposure meters. Would be interested to buy more unusual varieties, and also seeking a copy of his biography by his son Allen Watkins.

Many thanks for any help.

I have received your comment for which I thank you ( and warm thanks for the offer of help at Guildford - that is very well received as you can imagine). I am almost new to this website but it is very user friendly. I shall ask Jack to photograph his meter _ I think he has registered on this site so you might here from him direct. We have guests tomorrow for a few days ( the niece & nephew of Joy Thomas of Guildford) so if you don't hear for a few days it is because we are busy with them. I must then put some more pix on this website as I am scanning my way thro' 700 items and attempting to have a bit of a normal life now and then as well. I have the meter in my hand - out of its perfect box and am looking at the literature in the box. I see a date Sept 19th 1929 ...and 14th edition on the Instructions. The box says 'For those Lenses or Cameras marked 4,8,16,32 etc. Do you still want a pic?
