Description / Comments:
Size: Octavo (standard book size). Text body is clean, and free from previous owner annotation, underlining and highlighting. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. No date (c. 1970s), a reprint of the 1891 catalog issued by E. & H. T. Anthony & Co. Illustrated wraps, [4], 128 pages, [3], illustrated extensively with line drawings. Wraps are very lightly soiled, otherwise a very nice copy, clean with no writing or marks, binding is sound. “This 1891 catalog was issued during a period of transition in photographic equipment. This catalog gives an idea of the types of equipment in use by amateurs in 1891, the still-popular folding-bed cameras and the increasingly popular hand cameras. The catalog shows the lengths to which photographers want to conceal cameras by placing them in satchels or books or under a vest. It serves as a source of identification of equipment and illustrated law variety of apparatus necessary for the complete photographic process. The clarity of the line illustrations adds a feeling of the times hardly obtainable through today’s photographic illustrations. This catalog is a ‘must’ for anyone interested in the technology, art, or practice of photography in the late 19th century.” Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1 lb 0 oz.
