Since the revival commenced in 
Stereoscopic Photography, W. W. 
Rouch & Co. have been commissioned 
to supply several complete sets, 
ar/ anged for the excliuiive practice of 
this interesting branch of the art. 
The PATENT PORTABLE 
CAMERA lends itself readily to 
the purpose ; its front, unlike those 
of most of the modern ' portable ' 
inttrnmentp, afiFording ample space 
for the nec-asary twin lenses. Fitted 
with removable centralpartition, the 
various f izf s of Camera, from half to 
whole plate, are ai ranged for stereo- 
scopic wcrk, and are at the same time 
eqoally available for the production 
o' single pictrros. Iiist»ntaneon« shutters and every appliai ce lequiaitein connection 
with streofcojic work are kept ro stantly in stock, ai.d W. W. ROUGH A Co.'s long 
oonnertion witn this class of woik— extenoing as it does as far back as 1854— is a 
sufficient guarantee of the thorongh efficiency of every article supplied. 

Price of Patetit Partible Camera with removable central paitition, extra front, 3 

double backs, or the Eureka ch-tuging back for 12 pistes, any of the stereoECopic sizes 

up to7} x5, and pair of iuBtantan ons rectilinear doublets accurately j aired, with iris

This instrument surpasses all other Cameras of the hand class in the wide range of 
its powers, combining as it does a perfect Hand Camera with an equ lUy efficient one for 
use on a irip.d stand for general purposes. Notwithstanding the perfection .to which the 
Hand Camera has recently been brought, and d. spite the fact that many of the bej-t of 
such instruments are capable of more extended work, there is a growing demand fcr an 
even more comprehensive range of power, to meet which the ' L\celsior ' has been designed. 

Price of the 'Excelsior' (patent) Hand Camera, with two Ltnses, Double Rising 
Front, Rack and Pinion Focussing Adjustment, Thornton-Pickard Adju table Shutter,

'CHRISTMAS MOUNTS. 

' Marion & Co., Soho Square, W. 
'A large assortment of Mounts suitable for Christmas and 
New Year's photographic cards has been sent us by Messrs. 
Marion & Co. The Mounts are made suitable for attaching the 
photographs by means of an adhesive, and for " slipping in." 
Messrs. Marion's assortment this season is larger than ever, sizes 
being provided for pocket Kodak, midgets, C.-de-V., quarter-plate, 
cabinet, and half-plate, and either for upright or oblong. Artistic 
refinement characterises the designs and colours of these Mounts, 
which should be in high favour among photographers cultivating 
the photographic Christmas Card as an aid to business.' 



Our 1S98 Chribtmas Mounts. Simples will be ready in May.

The only paper made ivhich is both opaque^ and by reason oj its

exposure (in cases where the plates, &c., have to be kept some time before it is 
convenient to develop them) will be found again to be the best possible form of

Marlon's Patent 'Perfect' Developing Dish. 

'PHIS Dish is constructed 
-'■ with a well into which the 
plate fits exactly - the depth 
coinciding with the average 
thickness of plates in general 
use. Around the sides of the 
well is a narrow rabbet, the 
top of which is flush with the 
top, or film side, of the plate. 
At one end of the rabbet is a 
semi - circular depression to 
facilitate the easy removal of 
the developed plate. This 
arrangement prevents the for- 
mation of air bubbles, economises the developer, as the plate is the bottom of the dish, 
and promotes evenness of development.

HEWiLRLEn'' ZEISS' ANASTIGMATS.

Sole Manufacturing Licensees for the British Empire. 




Planar F3.** /~iO» mm fii). 
Series ia No. 11. 

i About two-thirds Full Sh^). 



'T'HE PLANAR, as shown 

in the illustration, is a symmetrical 
oljective consisting of four separated 
lenses. It possesses the following im- 
portant features: It is very rapid and 
yields sharply defined pictures, it is 
anastigmatically well corrected and em- 
braces a comparatively wide angle. The 
rapidity varies from ^/3.6 to y/6, 
according to the size and application 
of the lens, and the angle embraced by 
it varies from 62" to 72". 

The Planars are superior in precision 
or defining power to the Anastigmais 
hitherto made. They are therefore pre- 
eminently adapted for all kinds of 



copying processes. They work equally well when used for enlargements, projection, 
full-size copies and reductions. Even the finest details are reproduced with a degree 
'''preci>ion which satisfies the highest requirements. 

r)wini; to iis extreme rapidity the Planar is excellently adapted for the most rapid 
' istantaneous exposures out of doors (as in the preparation of animated pictures 
the kincmatograph and siini'ar work), and for Portraits and Qroups both outdoors 
' in the studio. 

i'he Planars are, however, not so well adapted for wide-ang'e architectural and 
rior views as the Series II Ia and V, owing to their greater aperture and consequent 
Uer angle. 

We make at present nineteen regular sizes of the Planar (Series Ia), as specified oti 
■ page, which gives all necessary particulars as to size, covering power and prices. 

Oa page 39 a few remarks will be found on the individual merits of the different 
^i.'s of this series with respect to various modes of application.

When working with the Planar it should be remembered that, owing 
to the great rapidity of the lens, one is apt to over-expose. This naturally 
causes fogging, and hence it is often advisable to make use of a restrain er 
during the process of developing.

Special Applications of the _^^^/^^ 

New Planar Lenses. 

Instantaneous Photography, N03. 6 to 19 of Series I* are adapted 
for photographing objects in motion. Tne size of plate covered at full 
aperture as given in the Table determines the most suitable focus in each case. 
For exposures of this kind, which should naturally be as short as possible, it is 
best to use a focal plani shutter placad immediately in front of the plates. 

Instantaneous street scenes and j^^/iz-i? pictures maybe taken with intermediate 
stops, the covering powers biing those given in the Table under the respective 
heading. The L'jns requires in these cases a stop of //6 to//9 according tD 
its foc.il length and the required depth of focus 

Portraits and Groups. Nos. 12 and 19 are adapted for this class of 
work, No. 12 being suitable for portrait Cirte-de-Visite, No. 19 for heads in 
■I sii'.e, No. 12 for groups measuring 7^ x 5 inches. No. 19 for groups measuring 
18 X 24 inches. Portraits should be taken with stops of 774. 5 to //6. Groups 
require stops of y/6 to/, £2.5 according to the number of rows or the requisite 
depth of focus. 

KinematOgraph pictures, .\nimated pictures are conveniently made 
with Nos. 1 to 4- and Nos. 6 and 7. The final selection depends upon the 
size of the film und can generally be made from the plate sizes given in the 
first column. 

Photomicrographic Enlargements and Reductions : Nos. i 

to 5 fitted with the English Microscopic Society Screw are well adapted for 
Hhoto-n.icrographic Enlargements. The/ yield magnifications up to 100 
diameters and embrace an angle of about 30". Even Nos. 6 to 8 are available 
for these purposes. Nos. i to 8 are equally well adapted for the production of 
microscopic reductions, such as are used in communications by carrier pigeons. 

Process Worlc (.Autotype, Th'ee Colour Printing, Half-tone and Photo- 
gravure). Nos 15 to 19 are available for these purposes, No. 15 covering a plate 
12 X 10, No 19, 32 X 26 inches. When working with these lenses the following 
rules should be observed : Object, objective and focussing screen should be well 
adjusted with respect to each other, it being absolutely necessary that the 
object and focussing screen should be strictly parallel to each other, and the 
ax s of the objective should be accurately at right angles to the focussing screen. 
Any imperfections in these adjustments are rendered apparent, in the shape of 
dissymmetrical definition, more readily than with the lenses hitherto used for 
copying. This is due to the fact that the Planars work at considerably larger 
apertures than the latter, in which inaccuracies are to a certain extent covered 
by their greater depth of focus. 

Focussing must be done with the most scrupulous care. When copying 
engravings it is advisable to follow the old plan of determining the best position 
of the screen by aseries of trials.— Half-tones are copied witljastop of//9 to//0, 
rngravings with stops of//io to /"/iS,

Ross' PATENT CONCENTRIC LENSES 




The most perfect Lenses for 

Landscapes, Architecture, 

Copying, &o. 



Ratio of Stops : 
V/i6, //22, fizj, /I32, /-/jS, //45. 



'T"*11E Concentric Le::\e^ arc the most perfect ever introduced, being 
X absolutely free from distortion, astigmatism, flare, and other im- 
perfections incidental to all lenses of ordinary construction. 

The Concentric Lenses give uniformly perfect definition with equal 
illumination over an absolutely flat field of a circle of about 75°, the 
extreme oblique rays coming to focus with the same remarkable sharpness 
as the central pencils ; and, therefore, these lenses will cover a larger plate 
when desired than those specified. 

The Concentric defines perfectly with its full aperture, and does not 
require the use of stops to obtain marginal definition as in other lenses ; 
the stops, therefore, need 'only be used to regulate the time of exposure and 
the depth of focus. 

* For landscape purposes, where uniformly soft and artistic effects over the 
entire field, not necessitating critically sharp definition, are required, these 
lenses are frequently used by eminent photographers at the aperture of//i6, 
with which the lens is fitted ; but in all cases when exposure is made with this 
stop, it is recommended that the focus be obtained witn//22 or a smaller stop.

ROSS WIDE-ANrLE SYMMETRICAL. 



These Lense ., like the Symmetricals of the Rapid and Extra-Rapid 
Series, are remarkably free from distortion and flare, and give sharp 
definition. They are constructed for 90" and upwards, a wider angle, 
perhaps, than given by any wide-angle lenses hitherto issued, giving equal 
definition at the margin of the plate. These Lenses are confidently recom- 
mended for architectural subjects, for all wide-angle work, and for use in 

confined situations.

ROSS' RAPID HAND-CAMERA 

And Stereoscopic Lenses. 

In consequence of ihe ever-increas- 
ing popularity of Hand Cameras, a 
demand has arisen for a superior 
class of Rapid Lens of short focus 
and moderate cost. Specially to 
meet this demand, Ross, Ltd., are 
introducing a series of Lenses ad- 
mirably adapted for such work, and 
also very suitable for Stereoscopic 
and general Photography. 

These Lenses cover well with full 
aperture, the F8 series embracing 
an angle of about 60 degrees ; they 
are absolutely free from distortion and

ROSS' 

IMPROVED PORTRAIT LENSES 




rpHESB LENSES are con- 
-^ structed on the Petzval formula to 
give all the sharpness that can be optically 
obtained, and enlargements from small 
negatives may be produced with them, 
which will compare favourably with others 
of the same size taken direct with a large 
lens. This is the most severe test of their 
defining power. 

When a Portrait Lens is used for 
standing figures, it is desirable to employ 
one of longer focus than necessary to 
cover the plate, as it can be worked 
with a larger stop, and consequently with 
greater rapidity. 



'>*•«*♦♦♦«♦♦♦♦*•♦« 



No. I and No. 2 Portrait Lenses are not now made, having been super- 
seded by the Carte-de-Visite and Cabinet Lenses, which give a flatter

is preferable, having a flatter field.

The above prices include a set of Waterhouse Diaphragms in morocco case. 
In choosing a Cabinet Lens the same rule applies as in the selection of a Carte Len-^ 
— viz., that for obtaining the best results it is desirable to use No. 3 when the Studio 
exceeds 20 feet in length. Many of the finest Cabinet portraits from the first Studios in 
Paris, London, and New York are taken with this Lens. 

FIVE PER CENT DISCOUNT FOR CASH. 



TO VERY Lens sent out is engraved '■Ross, London^ with its 
stock number^ by which it can be verified in the Lens 
Register. Large numbers of Lenses purporting to be of Ross' 
manufacture, but which are worthless imitations, are frequently 
palmed off on the unwary. Ross, Ltd., therefore find it necessary 
to caution Amateur and Professional Photographers to ^ware of 
such fraudulent imitations, and to purchase from the mant^acturers 
direct or through respectable recognised dealers.

KOSS* UNIVERSAL SYMMETRICAL. 



These Lenses work with double the rapidity 
of the Rapid Symmetricals. They are the result 
of exhaustive calculations, are constructed of 
Special Jena Glass, are perfectly aplanatic, 
giving brilliant portraits, groups, and other suit- 
able subjects, with full aperture. They are 
therefore adapted for Studio work, and when 
stopped down to the same extent as the Rapid 
Symmetricals are suitable for all kinds of Out- 
door Photography, Copying, and Enlarging. 
Their great rapidity renders them specially 
useful for obtaining fully exposed instantaneous 
pictures with rapid shutters, and the smaller 
sizes are invaluable for use in Detective 
Cameras. 

These Lenses are furnished with Waterhouse 
Diaphragms, or with Ross' Improved 'Iris,' 
at the same price. They are great favourites 
with Professional Photographers.

Any greater length of exposure may 
be given by fixing the shutter for 
time and keeping the ball com- 
pressed. Thesettingof the shutter 
does not open it ; this may there- 
fore be done when the sensi- 
tive film is exposed. This 
shutter fits between the 
combinations of the lens 
to replace the ordinary 
tube, and is furnished 
with an Iris diaphragm 
and two releases: 
one, a pneumatic ball, 
and the other, a trigger 
to be worked by the 
hand. Either can be used 
at will.

DIAPHRAGMATIC 
SHUTTER. 

(Supplied to order only.) 

H^.. 

This Shutter works between 
the optical combinations of the 
lens, and consists of two metal 
plates, each perforated with a 
circular opening, and moving 
simultaneously in opposite di- 
rections. In this way the ex- 
posure commences and finishes 
in the centre, thus utilising the 
light to the greatest extent in 
the least possible time. 
It works by either pneumatic release or 
trigger, and the different parts being well 
balanced, there is no vibration during 
exposure ; it works equally well in the 
horizontal or vertical positions. 

With the medium sizes an exposure of 
jj^^th of a second may be obtained, but 
the time may be increased by means of 
the brake to one second or more. 
In filling, the original lens mount is not used, and is thus available 
should the owner wish to use the lens at any time without the shutter.

THE TRIPLEX IMPROVED SHUTTER. 



FEATURES OF THE IMPROVEMENT. 

A New Release, by which the pneumatic is entirely detached from any con- 
nexion with the lever-bar during instantaneous exposures. 

Four Sprlngpi are furnished with each shutter, instead of two as heretofore, 
giving, in connexion with the new release, the great range of exposures shown 
in the 

Speed Card, furnished with each shutter, which has been compiled after a 
series of careful tests, and is approximately as correct as anything of the kind 
can be. 

The Triplex Improved T 

being fitted between the com- 
binations of the lens, each 
shutter also contains an en- 
tirely new lens tube, the 
original lens tube or barrel 
not being cut in any way, 
unless specially ordered, but 
returned intact. 

Rotary stops are fitted to c- 
all shutters when possible. 
Shutters may also be adapted 
for use with Waterhouse or 
plain stops, same price. 

Shutters are fitted, unless 
otherwise ordered, having 
same full opening as lens. 

We prefer, under all cir- 
cumstances, to have at least 
customer's lens tube, and 
do not guarantee fit imless 
we have complete lens. Where the lenses come very dose together, as in the 
Zeiss and Goerz lenses, we must have entire lens. 

We would point out that the very small space needed between the com- 
binations for shutter renders the Triplex Improved well adapted for such lenses 
as the Zeiss, Goerz, &c., when there is but slight room.

Snppose the lens used is 24 in. equiv. focns, and yon wish to make a full-lenpth 
portrait of a man six feet high, in which the image will be six inches high. Look at 
the left-hand column for lens focug, and in the top line for size of im.'igo. At the inter- 
section of these columns we find 312 inches=26 feet, to be the distance the person must 
stand from the lens. In the next tal)le, using the same lens and size of image as before, 
at the intersection of the colnmns wo find twenty-six inches, which represents the 
distance of the ground glass from lens centre. And in the same way any lens and size 
of imacre may be computed for.

QOERZ' PATENT 

Double Anastigfflat Lenses 




The introduction of the DOUBLE ANASTIGMATS consti- 
tutes undoubtedly one of the greatest advances of late years in 

Photographic Lenses. They are 
absolutely free from astigmatism, 
covering perfectly with the largest 
stop (about F 8) the sizes indi- 
cated, the definition being equal 
over the whole plate. The Double 
Anastigmats of the Series IIL 
include an angle of over 70°, and excel all other lenses in mar- 
i^inal definition when so large an angle is included with the 
full aperture. 

The Double Anastigmat is characterised by complete absence 
of distortion and flare, while, from the universality of its capa- 
bilities, it will be found the most useful Lens either Amateur or 
Professional Photographer can possess. 

They have been pronounced the very acme of 
perfection by numerous purchasers.

THE DOUBLE ANASTIGMAT, P 7.7. 

This is a Universal I^ns and is highly suitable for Portraits, Groups, In- 
stantaneous Work, and Architecture. The Double Anastigmat permits the 
use of the largest stop without diminishing the sharpness of the image at the 
extreme margins of the plate up to an angle of 70*. By the use of a smaller 
stop an angle of 90' is obtained. Definition, brilliancy, and flatness of field 
are uniform all over the picture.

flEW SECTOH SHUTTEH 

(GOERZ' PATENT). 



»♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ 

THIS new Shutter is formed by segments situated in the plane of the 
diaphragm, and opening from and closing towards the centre. 
This Shutter not only combines the good qualities of the best systems 
of Shutters hitherto known, but actually surpasses them in many respects. 
Its advantages are as follows : — 

1. Simplicity of mechanism, hence permanently uniform and .reliable 
nction. _ 

2. All moving parts are completely covered in, hence they are not 
susceptible to disturbing exter- 
nal influences, such as concus- 
sion, dust, nsoisture, &c. 

3. It can be fitted between 
lens systems which have very 
little separation from each gj^ 
other (e.g; double anastigmats 
with short focus), as the seg- 
ments are one-tenth of a milli- 
metre only in thickness. 

4. After opening with the 
greatest velocity it will remain 
for a certain period in this 
fully - opened position, there- 
upon closing with the same 
rapidity. Hence the Lens will 
vork during the greater part of 
the time of exposure with the 
full size of opening for which it 
is set. 

5. It will work without any 
shock or jerk, and permits, with 
certainty, great variations of 
speed, ranging from tiu to one 
>econd. The speeds marked on 
the Shutter are absolutely re- 
liable, and will apply equally for any adjustment or '* size of stop." In 
most Shutters hitherto known the speed will vary with the "size of slop," 
for which they are set, even without any alteration of the speed adjustment. 

6. It serves at the same time as a " stop," and can be adjusted for any 
desired " size cf aperture." 

7. It is set for action without opening it in doing so. 

8. It is perfectly light-proof, its manipulation is most simple, -and it is 
very light, being made of aluminium (Nos. I to 4 weigh 80 grammes only) ; 
it occupies very little space (see illustration showing full size). The work- 
manship is most perfect. 

The Shutter being fitted between the lenses, it is necessary that it should

Camera, combining 
stability and rigidity 
with all movements 
required in a really 
eful and reliable 
Apparatus. The 
ground-glass screen may be moved close up to 
the front, rendering the camera particularly 
suitable for wide-angle lenses, and thus 
obviating and cutting off of the foreground 
of the picture by the baseboard. The Cameras 
can be supplied with Turntables or plain base- 
boards as may be required.

NEW MODEL 



Twin Lens Camera. 



(PATE NT.) 

THE great popularity of the Twin- 
Lens Camera, has created a 
demand ..for Cameras to take plates 
of larger sizes than those hitherto 
listed. To meet this want, and for the 
convenience of many lady Photo- 
graphers and others who prefer to 
make a medinm-size picture, Ross, Ltd., 
have devised and patented a 

NEW FOLDING . .' . 

TWIN LENS CAMERA 

of even less weight, and which, when 
closed, is only two-thirds the size of the 
original model. 

This important improvement has 
been achieved by discarding the hinged 
front door and portions of the top and 
and base of the body, and thus decreas^- 
ing the weight, and utilising the front 
portions of the two sides to form folding 
doors (as shown in the illustration). The 
lower portit)n of the inside of these doors 
' have grooved fittings, which form 
guides for the travelling frame, and thus 
renders this new form, when ready for 
use, absolutely rigid. When closed, 
the doors are fastened by a spring clip. 
To set up the apparatus it is only necessary to press this spring and 

rack out the front, .when the doors open automatically and the travelling 

frame runs into position. The front is then pulled forward and clamped by 

the curved lever. 
This Camera is used in precisely the same manner as the original 

model, being suspended from the neck by a sling, or mounted upon a stand, 

as desired. 

On the next page will be found the prices of both the original find new 

models, 6tted with either Ross', Zeiss*, or Goerz'^ Lenses. 




JVken ordering, lime and trouble will he saved if customers loill kindly 
state clearly which pattern of Camera an3 series of Lens is required.

ii! 



1st. — Each picture can be 
obtained with micro- 
scopic sharpness. 
2nd. — The composition and 
lighting of instant- 
aneous pictures can be 
studied. 
3rd. — In photographing 
yachts and other large 
subjects there is an 
absolute certainty of 
the whole of thi 
objects being correctly 
centered, and con- 
tained within the limits 
of the plate. 
4th — When used on an 
ordinary Camera on a 
Tripod Stand for ob- 
taining portraits of children and animals, the many out-of-focus failures 
(due to the subject moving during the comparatively long interval that must 
elapse after focussing before the plate can be substituted for the screen) 
are by tlHs system entirely avoided.

THE "BOND STREET" 

FOLDING CAMERA 

FOB HAFD OR STAND USE.' 



mHIS Camera will specially commend itself to 
Travellers and Explorers on account of ils great Portability and Efficiency. 
It is constructed in the same style as the popular ' Ross' Divided Camera,' only the 
'•fst materials being used throughout. The exterior is covered with stout sewn leather, 

id the interior finished in a dead black, 
• ith bronze fittings. It is supplied with a 

ipg to form a handle for carrying and to 
upport the apparatus upon the chest when 
' '-d as a Hand Camera. The back open- 
ing is fitted with a concealed full-size 
focussing screen, the front has horizontal 
and vertical sliding motions, and the 
focussing is effected by rack and pinion. 
The range of adjustment is sufficient for a 
long-focus lens, such as the Rapid Sym- 
metrical, and the shortest focus wide-angle 
lenses can also be used. The reversing 
finder is made exactly to the scale of a 
qu.irter of an inch to the inch focus of lens, 
the tailboard folds up, and when closed 
conceals the lens and shutter, &c. This 
Camera is believed to be the most compact 
of its kind, the 6^X4! size measuring only SJx4>C6j inches when closed, and it presents 
the appearance of a neat black leather hand case. A divided scale for various distances 
md two bushes for tripod screw are fitted to each Camera. Dark slides for plates or cut 
tilms, roll-holders or changing boxes, may be used at will. The following prices include 

Rapid Symmetrical Lens, a Thornton-Pickard Time and Instantaneous Shutter, and 
I hree black polished Dark Slides, or an Eastman Roll-holder. If a changing box is 
preferred, the cost will bft^a little higher.

Instructions for using' the ' Ross ' Film Camera. 

To LiOad the Camera, place the plates or films alternately with the 
backing pieces in the magazine, replace the spring-board, and close door of 
magazine. Set the indicator at 'o,' and leaning the magazine a little forward 
by sliding the milled head, close the door of camera. Draw the magazine up 
to the vertical position, and the indicator will change to ' i,' showing the first 
film is then in position for exposure. 

To Set the Shutter ready to make an exposure, pull out the setting 
rod by the small knob which projects through the side of the camera, ancl 
release. 

To Adjust Rapidity of the Shutter, set the' lever in the slot at 
i./,) tif camera, so that the mark thereon is opposite the figures indicating the 
desired speed. 

To make the [Exposure, press down the end of the trigger which 
ects just above the setting rod. 

To make a Time Exposure, screw in up to its shoulder the time 
.,;,jp on the front of the camera near the lens, draw out the setting rod as far 
as it will come, and allow it to return just as when setting the shutter. This 
movement will open the lens aperture, and it can be closed by pressure on the 
• L^'^er when the exposure is complete. Be certain to screw the time spot out 

its original jKisition before attempting to set the shutter for instantaneous 
exposures. Time exposures may also be made by setting the shutter at slow 
speed and releasing as for instantaneous work ; but instead of allowing the 
li'^ger to rest on the trigger, remove it immediately. The shutter will open 

' remain so until closed by a second depression of the trigger. 

To Change the Plates or Films, hold the camera firmly, give 

milled head on side half a turn to the left, keep it in that position and slide 

: r rward to the end of the slot. When quite at the end of the slot, pull the 

111 out as far as it will come, and, after a pause, push it back again ; draw 

■ inilled head back to its original position and clamp it there by turning to 

right. This operation, which should be performed without letting go the 

lied head until the movement is complete, releases the plate or film last 

exposed, deposits it in the chamber at the bottom of the camera, and registers 

the consecutive numl:)er of the foremost plate in the magazine. 

To Remove the Exposed Plates or Films, open the sliding 

• r in the l)Ottom of the camera. 

The camera being made to carry the standard quarter-plate size (4J x 3J), 
I ;i.:iis of irregular sizes and shapes must on no account be used. 

Before opening or closing the back door of camera, the magazine should be 
turned forward that it may clear the indicator.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^m RecommeDded. 



mHIS is an excellent Magazine Camera well 
deserving its name. It measures approximately 92x5x6 
inches, and is very unobtrusive in appearance. Internally the 
apparatus is fitted with McKellen's Infallible Automatic Mechanism. 
The magazine is made to carry 12 plates in sheaths, or 24 films in 
sheaths may be used if desired. Any number of plates may be 
omitted altogether, or their places filled with twice the number of 
films, for instance, six sheaths with plates and twelve sheaths with 
films may be used without any alteration of the mechanism. 

The changing of plates is efTected by means of a very ingenious 

d yet extremely simple and reliable contrivance, actuated by a 

key, and nothing is left to chance. The operator who could make 

a mistake in this would be just as likely to omit putting his plates 

'n the sheaths when charging the camera. 

Any lens of suitable focus may be employed, and a variety of 
bimtters may also be adapted without trouble. Two Finders are 
provided, one for vertical and the other for horizontal pictures.

Ross' New Patent Science Lantern. 

jIs arranged for ordinary projection and for parallel beam -work, <&*£.) 

The large tubes afford a very long range, 
combined with the utmost stability when ii is 
desired to project apparatus. 

Complete absence of the usual stage springs, 
yet everything is held securely, but detached 
instaotaneousiy, the doors of aluminium keep- 
ing their position by gravity alone, without 
catches or fastenings of any kind. The jet 
(either ' blow-through ' or ' mixed ') has all 
adjustments, and the change of position as 
regards the distance from condenser being so 
frequent in science work, the control of 
this important motion is most conveniently 
managed by the ball-headed lever handles 

]!||^ seen at each side of the frame resting on the 

■'"■^" pillars. 

_, The ventilation is most perfect. 

Fig. 2. *^ 

The instniment, it will he noted, is double fronted, and each end or front 
carries a triple condenser of improved form. One of the fronts takes slides, 
tanks, diagrams, &c., and a leading feature of this part of the instrument is the 
framed mirror, which is pivoted towards the lower portion of the stage, then, 
when the large handle seen across the front is grasped, the stage can be raised 
into a horizontal position, the large mirror engages with two catches, and the 
smaller mirror lying along the objective being brought into position against its 
stop, an absolutely perfect vertical arrangement is at once obtained ; this is 
certainly the most perfect form of vertical arrangement ever devised, as it is 
certain in action, almost instantaneous in adjustment, has no loose parts, and 
dispenses with the necessity of a separate objective and condenser. These 
advantages alone affect very considerably the cost of production, while it is, in 
addition, most luxurious in its comfort to the demonstrator. 

The other front is for parallel beam work, &c. , the handle, seen projecting 
downwards from the large tube fitting, is laid hold of, and the body of the 
instrument swung round until this end or front is central with the light, the 
light itself remaining stationary ; into this front can also be inserted a Wright's 
optical front, slit front, microscope, polariscope, &c., and the various sections 
of the condenser are instantly removable for various classes of work. 

It can be supplied either in metal throughout or partly in wood ; at present 
it is only offered as adapted for Limelight, but a larger size is contemplated for 
use with Electric Arc Light. 

It is tairly portable, and occupies but little space.

The stage is entirely open on three sides, the bellows can be detached in a 
moment, or the whole front can be entirely removed with ease. Although the 
instrument carries a Condenser of such large size, its dimensions are in some 
respects well within the limits of other Lanterns carrying only the 4 in. Con- 
denser, and this result is obtained by the use of metal in the construction of all 
the working parts, only the front and base being of wood. The apparatus is 
not, therefore, liable to get out of order, there being no woodwork used where 
it -couM become warped with the heat. 




Any form of limelight can be employed, but arrangements are bcm^ madt; 
to fit the instrument with a new form of jet which will require only one cylinder 
of gas, giving a light fully equal to the best mixed jets. The Lantern can also 
be (itted with a suitable Electric Arc Lamp. 

For vertical projection a very convenient attachment has been designed, 
which can be fitted to the apparatus without trouble.

' A Dew invention is brought before the public, aid commands succe's A score of 
ABOMINABLE IMI '■ ATioNS are immediately introduced by the unscrupulous, who, in 
copying the original closely enough to deceive the public, and yet no' so »-xa'~'ly as to 
infriTiue upon legal rights, exercise an ingenuity that, employed in an original channel, 
could not fail to secure reputation and profit.' — Adams.

THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD ; 

Gr, Scenes from the Life of Christ. 

r 

Reading, price 1/-, by the Rev. T, Given Wilson. 

IN presenting the Life of Jesus Christ by means of reproduction from the 
canvases of some of the greatest masters of the art of painting, it will be 
well to bear in mind some of its most striking and unique characteristics. 
No person in the world, and for the moment we are thinking of Jesus of 
Nazareth as a qharacter of history, has so largely entered into the thought, 
been so ofien upon the lips, and so supremely touched the hearts of men as 
that of Jesus Christ. No life has been the subject of so much disputation 
and analysis, or been more widely read and perseveringly written about. 
Yet what are its details, and how have they been preserved to us? What 
is it that has made the name of Jesus such a power in the world ? The 
secret surely is to be found in the beautiful picture which introduces to us 
the subject cif the lecture, ' The Light of the World.'

HE ♦ N. & Q.' CAMERAS were placed in the market 

at a time when the increased speed oi Plates began to show the 
limitations entailed by long exposures, but when no instrument 
tor serious rapid work was obtainable. So-called ' detective ' and ' instan- 
taneous ' Cameras were, and are now, numerous enough ; but these are 
made and used merely as toys, and their application being as limited as 
the results are uncertani, they appeal only to the general public knowing 
little or nothing of photography. 

The ' N. & Q.' Cameras are the result of our constant endeavours 
to produce high-class instruments, capable of the finest work — whether 
artistic, scientific, or general — and absolutely reliable ; in fact, instruments 
which shall meet the requirements of workers desiring to obtain technically 
perfect negatives under all sorts of conditions. They are the outcome of 
our long and exceptional experience in the production, and practical use, of 
high-class Cameras and Shutters for special purposes, and their construction 
embodies all the points essential for good photography, in combination 
with the utmost refinement of workmanship. The ' N. & Q.' Cameras 
proved an immediate success when first introduced. They are now acknow- 
ledged to be the sine qua non for perfect results, and are used by the 
leading experts at Home, on the Continent, and in the Colonies. 

The principal considerations in the construction of the ' N. & Q.' 
Cameras are perfection of workmanship, and the utmost accuracy in all 
the adjustments. At the same lime, the prices have been kept as low as 
possible, and the instruments will be found of exceptionally good value 
when their completeness, efficiency, and finish are considered.

The ' N. & G.' Cameras save their cost in plates, time, and trouble. 
They stand years of constant work in the most trying climates, and never 
need repairs. Being very strongly made and of faultless workmanship, 
they resist accidents which would prove fatal to inferior apparatus. Indis- 
pensable to Beginners because always ready for use, free from mechani- 
cal complications, and extremely simple to work ; they are used by the 
Leading Experts because they take Lenses of any focal length, work 
with any Plates or Films, and provide every Adjiistvient required in 
Photography. 

The ' N. & Q.' CAMERAS 

are now made in Seven Patterns to meet different requirements, but all 
are constructed on the same general lines. The following points distinguish 
the ' N. & G.' Cameras from all others : — 

1. The Body and Front are built separately, and effectually conceal and 
protect the working parts. There are no projections of any kind. 

2. All the parts are arranged in the most convenient position for Rapid 
Work, whether used in the Hand or on a Tripod. 

3. Any Lens or different Lenses can be used, and all the patterns 
(except one) provide Double or even Triple Extension. 

4. Every part (Shutter, Changing-box, Focussing Device, &c.) is highly 
efficient, and yet quite simple in construction. 

5. There is at all times easy access to the working parts for the purpose 
of cleaning, &c. 

6. Every Adjustment can be made from the outside, so that the Camera 
need never be opened when in work, except for changing plates. 

7. All the Friction Slides (Rises, Extension) are of metal, and capable 
of adjustment for wear. All the parts are detachable without removing the i 
leather covering, and interchangeable. ' 

8. All the materials employed are selected with the utmost care, 
many being specially prepared, and the workmanship is perfect through- 
out. } 

9. Every Camera is made for its own Lens or Lenses, and, practically, 
sjjecially for each customer. All Scales are accurately measured and 
engraved.

Pattern B is the Camera which we particularly recommend for all- 
round work. It combines great simplicity with the utmost efficiency ; it 
is light and small. 

The Double Rising Front will be found indispensable when 
hotographing buildings, &c., and, in connection with the accurate Finders 
:ul Levels supplied, it renders architectural work quite easy. 

With its Double Extension, Pattern B provides a power of 
111 wider application. Lenses of considerable focal length may be used 
} its means ; while, with the ordinary Lens, large heads can be taken, 
md Rowers or any small objects may be photographed full size.

SPECIAL PATTERN B. 




The SPECIAL PATTERN B has, in addition :— Vertical and Hori- 
zontal Rising Front, Triple Iris and Focussing Scales, and each 
Finder is marked for the three angles covered. 



THE SPECIAL PATTERN B CAMERA has been designed in order to take full 
advantage of the new Zeiss ' Satz' Lenses (see page 137). These Lenses we have 
no hesitation in describing as the very finest in the market. _The_ particular numbers of 
the series selected for the Special B are composed of two combinations of different foci : 
so that by using one single combination or the other, or the complete lens, three focal 
lengths are readily available. The single combination of a Zeiss 'Satz,' it should be 
noted, is not a 'make-shift,' like that of an ordinary R.R. Lens, but an optically complete 
instrument, rapid, perfectly corrected in itself, composed of four elements cemented 
together, and capable of the finest work. 

NOTE. — The full aperture of a Zeiss-Satz Lens giving ihree/oci '\?.f.T. The same lenses 
if fitted with similar combinations, i.e., giving two foci, have a full aperture of/. 6.3. 

The Special Pattern B is the most complete Camera that money can buy. It is par- 
ticularly recommended to artists, naval officers, travellers — in fact, to all workers who 
have learned to appreciate the true value of using lenses of diflFerent foci at will.

PATTERN C combines the efficiency of a high-class Hand-Camera 
and the best Field- Camera : it is in great demand among those workers 
who require an apparatus with which they can photograph everything. 

The Swing-Back is indispensable for difficult architectural work, 
especially for interiors. When using this movement, the Lens must, of 
course, be considerably slopped down ; the Camera should therefore be 
placed on a tripod for such work.

HALF-PLATE PATTERN. 




The ' Half-plate Pattern has, in addition : — 

Vertical and Horizontal Rising Fronts and Double Extension. 

{The Shutter^ Changing-box, and other Fittings are of special 

construction.) 
'/T HE Half- plate ' N. & G.' Cameras which we have supplied have proved 
Vi/ highly successful . In order to meet the increasing demand for larger 
Cameras, we have given this pattern our special attention, and feel sure 
that it is as perfect and as easy to use as any of the other ' N. & G.' 
Instruments. The Shutter, even with an aperture of //6.3, gives the full 
range of regulation: J to i^jth second automatic exposures, and 'time' 
exposures at will. 

This pattern is made in two sizes — Half-plate (6J x 4I in.) and Double- 
Quarter {6JX4J in.). 

Note. — In order further to reduce the size and weight. Half-plate 
and Double-Quarter Cameras are usually made shorter than the full focal 
length of the Lens. Customers preferring their Cameras to be full infinity 
length {i.e., always ready at 'infinity') will please advise to that effect 
when ordering.

This Camera has two Lenses, which, by careful adjustment, are made 
exactly coincident. The importance of seeing an exact duplicate of the 
image, not only up to, but even during the time the actual exposure is 
made, will be at once apparent. 

The ' N. & G.' Focussing Device is now well known. It is absolutely 
efficient in any light ; it is quickly brought into use, and as rapidly made 
to disappear. Altogether, the ' N. & G.' Twin Lens Camera is the most 
complete and perfect instrument the photographer could possess for Ihej 
special work for which it is intended — animals and similar subjects at close] 
quarters, and taken with large apertures. For Landscape and general; 
work this instrument is, of course, quite as efficient as the other 'N. & G. 
patterns, and it is the favourite Camera of many of our leading experts, in i 
spite of its necessarily larger size.

■JSIFTHE Shutter, Iris diaphragms, &c., naturally form the essential features 
•'r^'- of this pattern, and these have been proved to be perfect in every re- 
spect. No work, probably, requires such absolute perfection as Stereoscopic 
Photography, and the Stereoscopic ' N. & G. ' always receives our utmost care 
and attention to details. The size of the plate adopted is the ' Double-Quarter,' 
6^ X 4| in. ; not only because it is eminently suitable for Stereoscopic pictures, 
but because, with the ' N. & G.' Changing Box, it is perfectly immaterial 
whether two ordinary qtiarter plates are used instead of the 6j x 4^ in. plate. 
A point of the utmost importance with the ' N. & G.' Stereoscopic Camera is 
that either 12 Stereoscopic Views or 24 single Quarter-Plate Pictures may 
be taken. When using the camera for single Quarter-Plate exposures it is only 
: -ssary to close the right and left spring doors alternately. This Camera can 
sed for Double-Quarter, Quarter- Plate, or Stereoscopic work by having an 
:. Sc G.' Half-Plate (Double- Quarter) Front fitted. The Septa of the bellows 
and changing-box are made easily removable.

THE 'N. S. G: 

EIFFEL STAND. 

The strength of this Tripod essentially depends on the 
mechanical principle adopted in its construction ; and as 
this permits the use of very light materials, the ' Eiffel ' 
presents a combination of extreme rigidity and lightness 
which never fails to surprise those who see it for the first time. 

The materials used are specially selected, and all the 
parts are made and fitted by hand. For strength, durability 
and lightness the N. & G. ' Eiffel ' Stand has no equal. It 
is easily set up, and as readily folded ; and although it will 
hold Cameras up to whole-plate size, it is the Hand Camera 
worker's tripod par excellence.

used to clamp the Camera down. This fly-nut 
has a free run of one inch, so that the Screw 
can be used with any thickness of Tripod head.

THE 

N. & Q; Telemeter. 




N. & G.' Telemeter. 



nPHIS little instrument is designed to 
enable Hand-Camera workers to 
measure the distance of any person or 
object with accuracy, and without attract- 
ing attention. By looking along the 
' sights ' towards the base of the subject 
to be photographed, the index will show 
the angle formed between the line of 
sight and a perpendicular drawn to the feet of the observer — this 
angle depending entirely on the distance of the subject. The 
scale is accurately measured, and gives a direct reading in yards. 
A small arrow at the end of the scale indicates when the 
pointer is exactly at right angles with the straight edge of the 
Telemeter, Therefore, the Telemeter can also be used to 
accurately level the camera when on the tripod, by holding the 
top edge of the Telemeter against the top edge of the camera. 



Instructions for Measuring Distances. 

Place the thumb of the right hand at A, the third and second fingers at 
B and c respectively, and the first finger over v>. Hold the Telemeter 
vertically in front of the eye, and lower it till both sights cover the base of 
the subject (the feet of a person, the base-line of a building, &c.). Now 
press the first finger on D, and the pointer will be fixed on the scale, and will 
indicate the distance. 

The instrument is graduated for level ground. If the subject stands 
higher than the observer, a proper allowance should be made, i.e., it should 
?ie imagined prolonged downwards to the level of the observer's feet.

ThT' N. & G.' CHANGING BOXES, 



FOR USING PLATES OR CUT FILMS IN 
FIELD OR HAND CAMERAS. 





THE success of the ' N. & G.' Changing Boxes (as used in the ' N. & G.' 
Cameras) has been so great, that no photographic outfit can now be 
considered complete without them. They are readily detachable, 
and each taking 12 plates, or 24 films, the number of exposures a 
photographer can make (especially in connexion with the 'N, &G.' 
Re-fill Boxes and Changing Bag) without returning to a dark-room, 
is practically unlimited. Thousands of *N. & G.' Changing Boxes of 
all sizes have been sold, and during the five years they have been in the 
mkrket in their present form, not one has been known to fail. The quality 
of the materials employed, and the workmanship of all the parts, have 
been brought to the highest degree of perfection, and they are steadily 
superseding the bulky and awkward dark slide for field work, and the 
complicated and unreliable ' automatic changing ' devices in Hand Cameras. 
The Boxes are made in two patterns : — 

A, cut to the smallest dimensions, for use in the ' N. & G.' and other 
Hand Cameras. 

B, with a large front, which can easily be cut down to fit the 
reversing back of any Field Camera, or Hand Cameras made for 
Dark Slides. 



196 



TSB BBITUH SOVUVJlL ALICANAC ASTlCBTISBHSNTS. 



Either pattern is made in two forms : — 

No. 1 contains 12 Carriers to take plates of any thickness. They ar^ 
made of thin steel, and are not only very light but exceedingly strong. 
A corrugation at each end of the Carrier prevents any scratching of the 
sensitive surface. By means of 12 Film Holders, supplied with every 
box, cut films may also be used in the above Carriers. This, indeed, 
is the only method of keeping cut films absolutely flat during exposure, 
for they are firmly held all roiind the four sides. 

No. 2 contains 24 specially thin Carriers for cut films only. With 
- these Carriers no Holders are necessary. 

A point of the utmost importance in all the ' N. & G.' Carriers, is that 
the sensitive surface of the plates or films comes in contact with the 
register of the Box ; the varying thickness of the different materials used is, 
therefore, of no consequence. 

Using an ' N. & G.' Changing Box is the only way to avoid pin-holes 
and double exposures — the two greatest troubles of the photographer. 

The aluminium Spring Partition contamed in each box always keeps a 
steady pressure on the Carriers, both in front and behind, and prevents the 
plates from rattling. The edges of the plates touch nothing but steel. 

An automatic Index constantly indicates the number of Exposures 
made.

The ' N. & Q.' Re=fill Boxes. 

THE safest method of packing plates for travelling is to place them 
in the * W. & G.' Carriers; as each plate is protected by its 
own metal sheath, no breakage need be feared, however roughly the 
packages may be handled. 

The * N. & Q.' Re-fill Boxes entirely obviate the trouble and 
risk entailed by changing plates. They take 12 plates, or 24 films, in 
their Carriers, ready to be changed for the exposed plates or films in the 
Changing Boxes. The ' N. & G.' Re-flll Boxes are composed ol 
three separate strong cardboard boxes, lined inside and out, and with all 
edges protected by canvas impervious to light. They weigh but little more 
than ordinary plate boxes, and are much stronger. They are fitted with a 
detachable celluloid label for recording when the contents are exposed. 

A Photographer setting out on a trip with two or three ' N. & Q.' 
ChaBging Boxes, and all his stock of plates or films in Ke-flll 
Boxes, need waste no time for changing plates, nor fear scratches, dust, 
or broken glass.

* THE ' N. & G,' * 

Enlarging :• Qamera, 




'4S!>,, 




l^'MJO produce good Photographs, large enough in size to be eflFective on 
ra S the walls of an exhibition, or at home, the best method is to make 
[ iBLBl l jj ^fjiall negative, \ to \-plate, as perfect as possible, and then to 
enlarge the picture to a suitable size. But the usual methods of enlarging 
(by means of a lantern, or by throwing the image on an easel in a darkened 
room) are troublesome, and, except in the hands of professionals who are 
constantly at this work, unsatisfactory'. 

The ' N. & G.' Enlarging Camera is a high-class instrument, which 
enables the worker to enlarge, copy, or reduce his negatives without loss of 
time, and with a certainty of perfect results. It will enlarge from J, 5x4, 
and i-plate negatives or transparencies up to 15 x 12 in., and will reduce 
down to lantern slide size— 3 J x 3J in. The instrument is made of blacked 
Mahogany, and is of the most perfect workmanship and finish throughout ; 
it is, in fact, like the ' N. & G.' Cameras, made entirely by hand and care- 
fully adjusted, regardless of cost of manufacture, and with the sole aim of 
supplying photographers, able to appreciate its value, with a tool highly 
efficient and capable of producing technically perfect work. 

Description. — The ' N. & G.' Enlarging Camera consists of a strong 
Base-board, supporting at one end the special apparatus for holding and 
adjusting the negatives, a 15 x 12 in. Camera at the other end, and the Lens 
and Shutter-board in the centre. All these parts are connected by means of 
strong Bellows; no light can, therefore, enter the camera except through the 
negative. The Base-board is fitted with tripod bushes, so that the apparatus 
may be screwed on any convenient stand. 



THB BRITISH aOtTKNAX, ALMANAC ADVKRTISHMBNTS. 129 

NegTAtlve Holder. — The method adopted for adjusting the nega- 
tives is perhaps the most distinctive feature of the ' N. & G.' Enlarging 
Camera. The front part of the Camera consists of a square frame of wood, 
attached to the Bellows, and pivoted between strong metal supports. This 
frame takes the detachable Negative Holder ; it can be swung backwards 
and forwards, and thereby provides adjustment for correcting lines out of 
perpendicular in vertical or horizontal pictures. 

The Negative Holder is readily detached from the Camera. It consists 
of two frames held together by strong springs, but which can be moved one 
upon the other in any direction. The outer frame holds the negative to be 
reproduced, and a ground glass screen for diffusing the light, if necessary. 
The inner frame carries the cut-out masks determining the shape of the 
picture. It is only necessary to insert the two pins projecting from this 
inner frame into corresponding slots in the Camera front, in order to fix the 
Holder firmly in position. 

It will Vjc evident that either the whole or any part of the picture may be 
reproduced, and that any detail thus selected (by sliding one frame over the 
other) will he automatically centered wYytn the Holder is fixed to the Camera. 

liens and Shutter. — The Lens and Negative Holder travel 
together along the Ease-board, and can be clamped in any position. The 
distance lietween the Lens and the Negative is adjustable, and determines 
whether the picture is 7-educed, enlarged, or copied same size. Any Lens 
from J to J-plate size may be used. The Shutter is actuated from outside 
the apparatus, by turning the knob over the Lens-board clamp. It works 
smoothly and without vibration. 

X>ar]£ Slides. — Single ' Solid ' Slides of special construction are 
used with the ' N.&G. ' Enlarging Camera. The Shutter pulls right out, and 
the back is detachable. The Slides will take Plates for Enlarged Negatives 
or Transparencies, or Bromide Paper for Direct Enlargements. For holding 
paper absolutely flat a metal Carrier is supplied with each Slide. 

Focussing^. — A separate ground glass Focussing Screen is provided, 
and the Camera is fitted with Rack and Pinion for focussing. 

The ' N. & G.' Enlarging Camera can be used with artificial light by 
lighting the negative with a lantern or condenser. Daylight, however, is 
recommended, as it is far more convenient and powerful. The picture may 
be enlarged direct on Bromide Paper ; but when quality is aimed at, and 
A eral copies of the enlargement are required, an Enlarged Negative should 
made. With either method the ' N. & G.' Enlarging Camera will 
i-ioduce large prints equal in every respect to pictures of the same size 
taken direct.

'N. & 6.' LANTERN-SLIDE REDUCING CAMERA. 

"THE superiority 
of Slides made 
by reduction in 
the Camera over 
those produced by 
printing in contact 
is admitted by ex- 
perts. Quite apart 
from the risk of 
injuring the nega- 
tive, ever present in 
.the latter method, 
'it is impossible 
to secure absolute 
contact all over 

two plates of glass, and the sharpness of a * contact ' is always inferior to 
that of an optically-produced Slide. Besides, when printing by contact, 
figures are often rendered far too large for the Screen, and the more 
pictorial shape of the usual photographic plate is lost in the circle or square 
of the contact-printed Lantern-Slide. 

The ' N. & G. ' Reducing Camera thoroughly obviates these drawbacks, 
and is used by the leading workers. We have recently further improved 
this Camera, and can thoroughly recommend it as a serious instrument, 
every part of which is carefully constructed to attain the object in view — the 
production of technically perfect Slides with a minimum of trouble. 

This apparatus, as regards its general design, is practically a miniature 
of the 'N. & G.' Enlarging Camera. It reduces J-plate (or ^-plate) to 
si ^ si- A"y Lens of about 5J in, equivalent focus may be used ; with a 
5^ in. Lens the entire image may be reduced to half the size, or any small 
detail enlarged up to two diameters. 

The Negative Holder is detachable, and provides universal adjust- 
ment oi ih& Negative in any plane. The Dark Slides are particularly 
neat, and convenient to use. A Lever for fine focussing, a detachable 
Focussing Screen, a Shutter working without the slightest vibration, 
and all necessary fittings are supplied. 

For a full Description, see the * N ^^ G.' ' Complete Catalogued 
Daylight, or any artificial light, may be employed for reducing with this 
Camera ; the former, however, is to be preferred. All the adjustments are 
easy, and the Camera is exceedingly light and small, and may Ije placed 
anywhere. These features render the production of Lantern Slides, by 
means of the ' N. & G.' Camera, a perfectly simple and delightful occupation, 
and every photographer, whether a regular lantemist or not, should possess 
this Instrument.

The 'N. ^ Q.' Enlarger, 

For making Whole= plate Prints 

from Quarter" plate Negatives. 

'THE 'N. & G.' 
^ Enlarger is a 
cheap but thoroughly 
efficient apparatus , 
for obtaining en- 1 
large ments of the! 
highest quality. It 
is always ready, can 
be used anywhere, 
and, while requiring 
no adjustment what- 
ever for ordinary 
work, yet admits of universal adjustment for subjects out of perpendicular, 
or out of centre. 

The body of the Camera is a strong cloth-covered box. The anterior 
end carries the Negative Holder, and the Dark Slide springs into the other 
end ; a rigid partition bears the Lens and Shutter. 

The negative is placed in the movable Holder, which for the usual run 
of work is kept exactly central. By unscrewing the caps of the clamps, the 
Holder will be free to move in any direction at right angles to the optical 
axis, thus providing ample correction for errors in the negative. 

The * N. &^ G.' Enlarger is supplied complete with a 5 in. Swift 
R. R. Lens. This is accurately fixed at its critical focus, and need never 
be touched except for cleaning. A Shutter actuated from outside, a 
strong 'single' Dark Slide, and a ground glass Screen for focussing 
(and diffusing the light if necessary) are supplied. The Slide will take 
Plates for Enlarged Negatives, and, by means of the Metal Carrier sent 
with each Slide, Bromide Paper for Direct Enlargements. 




For a full Description, see the ' N. & 6.' ' Complete Catalogue.' 

The ' N. & G.' Enlarger being always ready for work, it will give a 
whole-plate enlargement on Bromide Paper, or a transparency on a Plate in 
less time than would be required to obtain a direct print from the same 
negative. In fact, by its means, negatives may be enlarged before they are 
dry. The price has purposely been kept as low as possible, so as to place 
I within the reach of all workers, but the instrument is carefully made, and 
:iiay be thoroughly relied upon.

THE 'N. & 6.' ALUMINIUM BLIND SHUTTER. 

With Pneumatic Regulation, Release, and Stopping 6ear. 

The ' N. & G.' BLIND SHUTTER is a neat, light, and thoroughly 
reliable instrument, constructed throughout on sound mechanical 
principles. All outer and inner details are perfect in workman- 
ship and finish, and every ' N. & G.' Shutter will last out 
many of the cheaply made wooden shutters commonly used. 
The speed depends on the resistance of air, and is carefully 
tested for, and accurately engraved on, 
each Shutter. Size B gives automatic 
exposures of ^ to ^th second, and ' time ' 
exposures of any duration without the 
necessity of keeping the lall pressed all 
the time. The 'N.&G.' Blind Shutter 
further presents the following unique ad- 
vantages : — 

Neither with time nor with rapid ex- 
posures is there the slightest noise or 
vibration. 
All working parts are of metal. 
The outer Case and the Rollers are made 

entirely of aluminium. 
The Shutter is set by a metal rack ; there 
is therefore no string to pull and strain 
the Camera, and no annoyance by this 
string breaking or catching in the 
fittings in windy weather. 
The Blind can be easily replaced. 

The ' N. & G.' Aluminium Blind 
Shutter ivill work for years in the most 
trying climate. 

It can be fitted : on the Hood or the front of the Lens, at the back of the 
Lensy or between the Combinations.

THE 'CELERITAS' (High Speed) SHUTTER. 

(With Pneumatic Stopping Gear.) 



^-•HE 'CELERITAS' (High Speed) SHUTTER, which we 

■ ^^^ placed in the market some years ago, has thoroughly met all the difficulties 
^•■"^ connected mth rapid work ; and, in its present improved and simplified form, it 
is as easy to use as any ordinary ' N. & G.' Shutter. It works in the only admissible 
position— ;.«., between the combinations of the Lens. Every part of the image is there- 
fore exposed simultaneously, and for exactly the same fraction of time, and distortion is 
impossible. . ,,.,.,., 

The ' Celeritas ' (High Speed) Shutter is made entirely of metal, and is designed -wiVa 
a view to obtaining a maximum degree of speed and high efficiency, combined with due 

strength of all the parts. The moving 
blade is of aluminium, only ^^th inch 
thick, and this is propelled by a powerful 
steel spring, without the slightest shake 
or vibration while the exposure is made. 
At the end of each revolution of the 
Exposing Disc, a powerful Air Brake 
comes into operation, and the Shutter is 
stopped by the resistance of the com- 
pressed air ; so that, in spite of the 
enormous blow, there is practically no 
jar, and no part is in the least damaged 
even after years of constant work. An 
improved cam and lever arrangement 
renders the winding of the spring (for 
setting the Shutter) quite easy. 

The Shutter gives three speeds, which 
for a Lens of i-inch aperture are iijoth, 
ssnth, and snnth of a second. 

The workmanship and finish of the 
apparatus are necessarily of the very 
finest description, and only that enables 
us to attain the above results. 

The ' Celeritas ' (High Speed) Shutter 
exactly meets the requirements of workers 
interested in horse racing, athletics, and 
sports ; and it is the only practical and 
efficient instrument for obtaining per- 
fectly sharp studies of animals running, birds on the wing, and rapidly moving objects of 
all kinds. 'T\\& vm?L.^K.% A %yyts!C[>: absolutely correct in drawitig. The 'Celeritas' is, 
.;fore, indispensable for artistic and scientific work.

FORESTER'S EFFECTIVE BACKING 

FOR PREVENTING HALATION. 

SLACKED PLATES are an absolute necessity when the best possible 
^'^ results are aimed at. Although all experienced Photographers are 
agreed to this, most plates are still used unbacked; this is owing to the fact 
that it is impossible to obtain a satisfactory material unless prepared in 
large quantity from specially selected ingredients. As is well-known, 
home-made and other Backing is apt to remain sticky, or to become gran- 
ular and occasion dust — in either case it is worse than useless. 

Forester's Effective Backing is prepared from the finest in- 
gredients, and is put up in a most convenient form. It will keep for 
months, and is always ready for use. It sets in a few minutes, into a dry, 
horny film which cannot even be scratched off ; yet the slightest touch 
with a wet sponge or cloth will at once remove the Backing. 

Forester's Effective Backing is a boon to Photographers, both 
; rofessional and amateur. Better negatives (in Landscape, Hand Camera, 
md other work) are obtained in nearly all instances by using this Backing, 
■Old in subjects where there is any danger of HALATION, such a 
precaution becomes indispensable.

IMPORTANT ANNOTJNCEMENT.— For some time certain 
makers have been introducing low-priced, common, soft, spongy mounting- 
boards. To meet the demand for a cheap reliable mount, our factory have 
succeeded in placing on the market a hard, smooth-surface, stout mount, in the 
usual styles : India tint, India tint plate-mark, Oxford line and plate-marked 
with paste-down India tint. Where a really good cheap mount is wanted this 
will meet the requirements of the profession.

Price

J. Traill Taylor stated in British Journal oj Photography: 

Messrs. Perken, Son & Raymjent have also submitted for 
examination a rapid doublet lens of their manufacture, suited 
lor quarter-plate work, and particularly designed for hand or 
detective cameras. 

The mount is of aluminium, with an Iris diaphragm, and is 
reduced to a minimum both as regards weight and bulk. 

The lenticular components are constructed so as to give a 
wide visual angle, combined with great rapidity (F/6) and sharp 
defining power. 

On the mount 4^ x z\ inches is engraved as the area the 
lens covers. We, however, find the circle of light it projects is 
equal to fully 6% inches diameter. This is a highly elegant 
optical production. 

E. J. V^AU^sidXed in Amateur Photographer: 

The " Optimus " DETEcnvE Lens.— This is a new aluminium 
mounted rectilinear lens with Iris diaphragms, especially ar- 
ranged to suit hand camera or detective work. The components 
are placed close together and give wide visual angle, but not so 
close as to sacrifice marginal definition when working with large 
aperture, for the extremes of diagonal of 4^ x 3^ plate are 
covered with good definition with opern aperture, F/°i ^"^ '^he 
circle of light is equal to the diagonal of a 6| x 4I plate.

SUITABLE FOR 

SNAP SHOTS, LANDSCAPES and PORTRAITS. 

The instrument sold under this name by us during the last three 
seasons has met with very decided success. We have, therefore, to 
further encourage its sale, greatly improved the model : firstly, by 
fitting a rack and pinion adjustment for focussing, actuated from the 
outside of the instrument; secondly, by supplying a Roller Blind 
Shutter with it. The three double dark slides and focussing screen 
are enclosed within the instrument, so that it is self-contained. It has 
the necessary screw for attachment to a tripod top, or it may be used 
in the hand for instantaneous snap-shots. 

The EXTERNAL DIMENSIONS are 8| x 4| X 5| inches, 
and the black outside leather with which it is covered is really of good

The Original Optimus " Magazine Camera was highly extolled 
ui; all sides as the least complicated of Reservoir Cameras; but the 
present Model is superlatively perfect in the simplicity of its parts, and 
absence of unnecessarily intricate mechanism. The grooves in which 
the Films or Plates are placed are continuous from the upper, or 
Reserve Chamber to the lowcr, or Exposure Chamber. The Plates 
simply slide by their own weight from the upper to the lower chamber, 
without passing from box to box through a slot or performing any 
acrobatic feats. The Rapid Euryscope Lens can be accurately focussed 
from outside the box by Rack and Pinion. The Finders give propor- 
tionate images. A well-finished Roller Blind Shutter is fitted. This

"The present Model Rayment Camera is among the VERY LIGHTEST

"The RAPIDITY of OPENING and CLOSING is greatly facilitated by 
the additional airaneement for throwing the pinion out of gear from the rack. 

"There is NO CURTAILMENT OF VIEW when lenses of short focus 
rind wide angular aperture are in use. 

"ALL MOVEMENTS NECESSARY to the modern scientific photo-

T. C. HEPWORTH, F.C.S., says : " The Rayment Camera in particular 
claims attention, both for its BEAUTY OF WORKMANSHIP, and for the

The Components of this Developer are perfectly pure, and the 
exact quantities necessary are employed, so ensuring the best 
possible negatives, whether Landscapes or Portraits, be the Ex- 
posures Instantaneous or Prolonged. 

TO PREPARE THE DEVELOPER. 

Place the contents of one packet of each coloured paper (Gold, 
Silver and Blue) into a vessel and pour upon it 9 ozs. of pure water, 
preferably distilled, that is, one-tenth less than half a pint. Should it 
be desirable to mix the whole quantity at one time add 36 ozs. of water 
to the 12 packets. When completely dissolved it is ready for use. 

TO ECONOMISE THE DEVELOPER. 

After developing, pour the used Developer into a second bottle 
for it can be advantageously employed in developing other plates. 

To obtain the best possible results we commend the following 
instructions to the CAREFUL attention of the operator : 

For Plates 

Over Exposed use Old Developer only. 

Instantaneously Exposed ,, New Developer ,, 

Under Exposed „ Half Old & Half New. 

Place the plate in the developing dish or tray, and pour over it 
sufficient Developer to cover the upper surface thoroughly. 

When the detail does not appear as quickly as expected, add new 
developer, or use new only^as may be found necessary. 

IN PACKETS SUFFICIENT FOR 100 ^PLATES. 

PRICE Is. 6d. 

*,* The temperature should not b« much below or above 6o* Fahrenheit, or 
the action of the developer will become retardod.

tended it is three times as long as when closed. A Compound Condenser is 
included, and fixed into an adapter very easily withdrawn, so that another of

bles the operator to obtain the best possible illumination whatever may be the

of thoConienser greatly exceeds the diagonal of the plate to be copied. Three 
milled heads will be found near the baseboard attached to pinions and racka

J. TRAILL TAYLOR 

"The 'Optimus' Lantern Objective. — This lens, by 
Messrs. Perken, Son & Kayment, has a singularly flat field combined 
with great brilliance of the image. The corrections by which these 
properties have been secured have not been obtained at a cost of its 
utility as a carlt portrait lens, for the coincidence of the chemical and 
visual foci, not always found in some lantern objectives, is here perfectly 
achieved. The form of the combination is essentially that of Professor 
Petzval'f , subject to slight alterations consequent upon the improvements 
recently effected in optical glass. Although for lantern purposes it 
works with full aperture, yet it is provided with a case of stops to serve 
the purposes of copying or ordinary photographic portraiture. 

T. C. HEPWORTH 

"'Optimus' Lantern Objective. — The image given by this lens 
is BRILLIANT and it has a WONDERFULLY FLAT FIELD. As 
the chemical and visual foci coincide, the instrument can be used for 
portraiture as well as for lantern work."

We are pleased at being enabled to describe this appliance, which we have seen 
at work on more than one occasi.Jn, and which we believe to be as free from all sem- 
olance of danger as we know it to be excellent as a means of illumination. 

In the " Optimus " Saturator, the moment the ether has been poured into the filler 
aiid screwed down, the taps may be turned on and a light applied to the burner, wheii 
the lime will at once become incandescent, and yield a superbly brilliant light. 



" Messrs. Perken, Son & Rayment, of Hatton Garden, London, had the honour 
of displaying their new safety Saturator for optieal lantern illumination belore the 
members of the Royal Institution of Great Britain, in Albemarle Street, Piccadilly. 
Several members of the company present themselves manipu'ated the instrument,

Extract from " Nature." — "Lanternists will 
be glad to learn that Perken, Son & Rayment 
have introduced a new oil lamp, possessing 
three times the candle-power of those hitherto 
used for lantern projection. For small audi- 
ences the lamp will suit a lecturer's purpose 
quite as well as the lime-light." 

"OPTIMUS PATENT 100 CANDLE-POWER 
LAMP FOR PROJECTION LANTERN. 

Price, Three Wicks, two inches wide, with Chimney complete. 25'- each. 

Mr. THOMAS BOLAS. Photographic Work : " The light certainly 
surprised us . . the BRIGHTNESS— and above all, the WHITE- 
NESS— of the disc, recalling a LIME-LIGHT , while that smell of 
paraffin which in greater or less intensity, seems the inevitable accom- 
paniment of the oil lantern, could not be noticed." 

J. TRAILL TAYLOR, Briilsk Journal of Photography, said.- 
'• Messrs. Perken, Son & Rayment claim to have produced a triple wick 
oil lamp, in which the luminosity is equal to ONE HUNDRED 
CANDLE POWER, while the light is very pure, and the heat less 
than usual. We have been present at trials made with it, and find 
allegations as to PURITY and INTENSITY OF FLAME are main- 
tained. 

Amateur Photographer. — " The ' Optimus' Oil Lamp for Lanterns. — 
Perken, Son & Rayment of yy, Uatton Garden. AVith the greater 
supply of air is combined greater illumination and greater freedom 
from smell. We have had an opportunity of severely testing the lamp 
against some of the best ordinary forms, and the increase in illumina- 
tion is at least three times."- 

By means of air shafts a greatly increased brilliancy is secured, 
which has been computed to equal three times — vide Report of British 
Photographic Society, February 24th, 1893 — the candle-power of the 
refulgent lamp hitherto used. These air shafts in promoting combus- 
tion create perfect ventilation t/iereby overcoming the offensive odour 
so objectional to mineral oil lamps. The colour of the flame is 
practically white, the lamp, is, lliercfore, peculiarly suited for enlarge- 
ments, and as compared with other lamps materially lessens the 
duration of photographic exposures.

For showing the quantity of gas in

Cylinder, when full, should register 
I20 atmospheres, when half full 6o

Messrs* Per^en, Son and Rayment,

Gentlemen^ 

Having lately returned from Greenland 
after my Expedition last year across the Inland 
Ice, I have great pleasure in now informing you, 
that the Instruments supplied by you for the 
Expedition, namely the three Aneroids, and the 
pocket Sextant, have been proved to my entire 
satisfaction, — Titue not alloiuing the Aneroids to 
be verified at the Kew Observatory as intended, 
I had this done at the Meteorological Institute here^ 
with the most satisfactory results as to their 
correctness, and although the necessarily severe 
usage and tests to which, from the rather unexpected 
hi^h altitude of upwards g,ooo feet reached, and the 
great change of tetnperature, varying f7-om + jj 
^o — 55 Fh. in the clay and fright, they were exposed, 
vet they worked admirably together, and on again 
reaching the sea level, they differed but very 
slightly. — The pocket Sextant also, the only instru- 
ment we had for fixing our latitudinal position, 
proved invaluable to us, and justified fully the excel- 
lent workmanship and finish. 

I am, Gentlemett, 

Your obedient servant,

SHORT HISTORY 

VOIGTLANDER & SOHN. 

tHE firm was founded in 1756 by Christoph Voigtlander. In 181 1 
his son, Friedrich Voigtlander, constructed the first binocular 
field glasses. The third owner of the firm, Friedrich Voigtlander, 
carefully studied Frauenhofer's methods of examining glasses 
used for optical purposes and, with a spectrometer, made by himself, 
obtained the optical data of all the kinds of glass then manufactured. 
He made use of this with the greatest success, as it enabled him to 
tabulate practical data for the calculation of optical instruments. He 
handed these data to the Mathematician, Professor Petzval, of Vienna, 
asking him to calculate a photographic double objective. According to 
the calculations Professor Petzval supplied, Friedrich Voigtlander 
brought out, in 1839, the first photographic doublet, the well-known 
Petzval Portrait Lens. These Lenses, owing to their rapidity, first 
enabled satisfactory Photographs to be taken of living objects. They 
were so different from any Optical system previously constructed, that 
they became the basis of an entirelj' new class of optical instruments. 

The fourth and present owner of the firm, Friedrich Ritter von 
Voigtlander, constructed, in 1877, the first Euryscope Lenses, which gave 
a large flat field with much more light than previously obtainable. These 
Lenses having become rapidly popular various successive series were 
constructed. The advantages of symmetrical Lenses suggested also 
improvement in portrait Lenses, and, in 1883, the long focus portrait 
Lenses were replaced by symmetrical Portrait Euryscopes, Series H.& HI. 

Until recently very few kinds of glass were available for optical 
purposes, but, in 1886, the Glass Technical Laboratory, of Professor 
Abbe and Dr. Schott, in Jena, brought out a number of new glasses 
which influenced the optical industry in a similar manner though to a 
much greater extent than Frauenhofer's seven glass-fusions. Voigtlander 
and Sohn were the first opticians to make use of this extension of Optical 
means as regards Photographic Lenses, and, in 1888, they improved all 
their symmetrical Lenses, which, until then, had contained two flint 
glasses and replaced the latter by two extremely transparent crown 
glasses. The Wide Angle Euryscopes and single Landscape Lenses were 
entirely reconstructed. 

The Collinear Lenses, introduced in 1894, were in 1896, almost 
reconstructed, with the result that they now combine a larger aperture 
and covering power with freedom from astigmatism. They are made 
in three Series with apertures, F5-6, F77 and Fii-3. 

In the 142 years of its existence the business has steadily increased. 
The latest methods of manufacture and the best modern machinery are 
used. The works in Brunswick were rebuilt in 1893 and are complete 
in every respect with steam-power, and own Electric Light Installation. 
The workshops are large and well heated and ventilated. No apprentices 
are kept and all the work is done by experienced men who receive 
pensions amounting to from half to two-thirds wages after being with 
the firm a certain time. There is a large Studio (over 100 square 
yards), with dark room, for testing Photographic Lenses, and a long, 
well-lighted room (over 120 square yards), for testing Field-glasses, Tele- 
scopes, etc. 

Grinding Lenses is done only by machinery, but nearly all Lenses 
are polished by hand with the greatest care, thus avoiding undue 
heating of the glass during this process.

These Instruments, owing to their relatively extensive field of view, combined with depth of 
definition and rapidity, have been extensively nsed for almost every class of Photographic work. 

Very good portraits and groups can be ^en in the Studio, specially with the larger sizes, 
and for this purpose they can be used with full aperture. Their rapidity is so great that very 
short exposures can be given for outdoor and Hand Camera work. They are also elBcient for 
landscapes and general objects.

These Lenses though rapid have not so large an aperture as the preceding ones but exceed 
them in depth of definition and angle of view. They are among the best all round Lenses and will 
be found most useful for Groups, Landscapes, Copying and Architectural Work. The back 
Lens can be u'^ alone as a single Lens of about double the focal length of the combination.

New Series. 
GOLLINEAR LENSES. 

■ These Lenses have been recently remarkably improved, and are now 
much more efficient than the original series. They consist of symme- 
trical back and front gombinations, each of which consists of three lenses 
cemented together ; they can also be supplied non-symmetrical. They 
give an anastigmatic, sharp and flat field, with a wide angle and great 
rapidity. The results are remarkable, as the image is almost geometri- 
cally exact ; for this reason the name Collinear has been given to them. 
The ratio of Diaphragms to each other is according to the Standards 
fixed by the Royal Photographic Society.

For Reproductions, Copying, Architecture, Interiors, etc., this is 
the first series of Symmetrical Anastigmat Wide Angle Lenses 
made in small as well as large sizes. With full Aperture a field 
of 75° is perfectly sharp, and with smaller stops up to over 90°, 
and in this large field no trace of astigmatism or unevenness can 
be found. The following sizes of plates, as in the case of 
Series II., III., are by no means the maximum. In most cases much 
larger plates will be covered sharply. If a too short focus lens 
is used, the perspective is not so good. The definition obtainable 
is extremely sharp.

NON-SYMMETRICAL LENSES. 

We can supply our Collinear Lenses with front and back lens of 
different foci, thus combining in one instrument two single lenses and 
one doublet, working at from Fy-a upwards. We would specially state 
that these combinations are thoroughly efficient instruments. They are 
much more portable, and take up less room than three separate lenses. 
We should be glad to quote for these non-symmetrical lenses. 

We can specially recommend combinations formed of Collinear 
Series IV., and give the following as an example. The single lens when 
used on plates suitable for the doublets show scarcely any distortion, and 
can be used for Architectural work; for instance, no distortion can be 
seen over lo x 8 plate with i6 in. focus single lens of this series.

NOVELTIES for 1898- 



New introduction of 




RAYFILTERGRAPHS. 



The Bausch and Lomb Ray Filter, shown 
above, is especially adapted for cloud effects 
and for rendering true colour values in all 
kinds of photography. 

The Filter consists of two thin pieces of 

optical glass, the surfaces of which have 

been ground and polished perfectly plane and 

parallel. Between these plates is cemented 

a glass ring, of uniform thickness throughout, 

forming a cell to hold the requisite solution 

of bichromate of potash. The glass part is 

mounted in a neat metal ring, which protects 

it, and holds the filter firmly in proper 

position upon the front of the lens. It will 

be found that this filter is of the utmost 

practical value in every kind of out-door 

work, except for the most rapid exposures. 

Marine views, snow scenes and mountain 

photographs are beautifully rendered as the 

Ray Filter eliminates the white haze, thus 

giving perfectly distinct pictures of distant 

peaks which are often invisible to the eye. 

This Filter is also invaluable for photographing and printing coloured interiors, as well 

as for making plates for the three-colour process, with three binding screws for attachment 

to the lens hood. With each filler is provided an additional supply of the bichromate 

solution, which has been duly tested with the spectroscope, also filler and pliers complete.

NEW LANTERN SLIDE MAKING CAMERA 

For Producing Slides fiom Parts ot or Large Negatives. 

SILVER MEDAL AWARDED 

HACKNEV EXHIBITION 

1896. 




THIS Camera has been invented and patented by Dr. Roland 
Smith, and he describes his invention as follows. He has 
practically used it for the production of Microscopic Slides for the 
Lantern, a test that should demonstrate its value to intending 
purchasers. 

. . FOXISTTS. . . 

FIRST. — In dealing with larger negatives, the whole or any part can be reduced to 
Lantern size. 

SECOND, — In dealing with smaller negatives, the whole or any part can be En- 
arged to Lantern Size. 

THIRD. — Provision made or Tilting Negative when the lines are out of vertical. 

FOURTH. — Practical Automatic Focussing, this being done by pointer and scale on 
base-board. 

FIFTH. — Compactness. Considering its capacity or work, the size is not more than 
one-half of that of other Reducing Cameras. 

SIXTH.— Reasonable Price. 

The Camera complete is fixed on a base-board i8x 10. At one end is a fixed frame 
8} X 6} inches, with moveable masks for half- and quarter-plate, at right angles to the 
Optic axis of lens, with a mechanical stage attached, so that it can carry any portion of 
the negative on the square,, or tilted into the optic axis of the lens, and fix it there for 
photographing. ... . . . 

The Camera is Sliding Box Form, the outer case carrj'ing the dark slide and focussing 
screen^ the inner one of the lens, each made to move into the optic axis of the lens for 
focussing purposes, quite independent of the other— the outer by rack and pinion, the 
inner by thumb screw and clamp. A Marked Scale, with a pointer on the one side, shows 
the distance of the camera for enlarging, and on the other side the distancefor reductions ; 
similar markings on top show position of lens. Exposure is made by simply removing 
a vulcanite shutter from front of lens. In using this camera, the source of light may be 
either artificial or daylight ; if the latter, the whole camera can be sloped against a 
window covered with tissue paper, the time of exposure by that means being reduced to 
about 30 seconds. 

Price, fitted with Single Lens of 3 in. focus of good definition, £3 IDs. 
Ditto, fitted with Selected Wide-angle Rectilinear Lens, £4 58.

SPECIAL NEW LINE IN 



A Good Mount Enhances the Value of your Work. 

The most Important Advance in Quality of Mounts, at 
Exceptionally Low Figures, tor many years. 

As the market has now been flooded some time with chear, common- 
quality, soft Mounting Boards, I have at last succeeded, after considerable experiments, 
in perfecting a good, hard, smooth-surface Mount, that I am enabled to place on tne market 
at a price that will compete with the inferior kinds offered. It will well repay all Photo- 
graphers to send for a sample fifty, and their appearance will at once demonstrate their 
superiority over all other kinds offered at the following prices. Only the following sizes 
stocked, and in five varieties. My other well-known high-class Superfine Mounts as usual.

This Camera is, without doubt, 
one of the very best Twin-Lens

the picture can be focussed direct

Camera, so that it is not neces- 
sary to open up the whole front

LIZARS' "CHALLENGE*' HAND CAMERAS. 

The Editor of "Practical Photography" writes:—"! am 
delighted with your "Challenge" Cameras, the J-plate and the 
Stereoscopic, both of which I carried with me at the Convention ; 
wore greatly admired and much enTied." 

The Sub-Editor of "Photography" writes :—" Four Camera 
fulfill Its full purpose. It is very compact indeed, and a very cleverly 
contrived instrument. It is plainly on the face of It a Camera. I like 
the dark slides t>ery much, and 1 like the Camera ever bo much better 
because it is so Aam2]/ for the «<an<i." 

"The Amateur Photographer" says :—" The Camera Is eery 
compact, and is at once a universal one. which we can teell recom- 
mend. It can be used equally well for map sfiots or itand work." 

The "Challenge*.; Band Camera ie 
the smallest, mostt^rtable and 'most 
terviceable Hand or Pocket Camera in 
the world, and absolvlely free from com- 
plications. It has the best features of 
all the so called best Cameras, as well ai 
the following, viz. :— The front of the 
Camera is a best quality Thornton- 
Plckard Shutter, to work either time or 
Instantaneous, and to which Is fitted a 
Speed Indicator. The front is a rising 
and falling one, to which the bellows is 
attached, thus preventing any cutting 
j<jg 3_ // R 31^ \l\l ^^ °^ *^® picture. The Focussing Is 

'* ■" ^'"" ™" adjusted by rack and pinion, and the 

different distances at which the Lens Is 
In focus are marked off from 3 to 30 feet. 
The Bellows is of first quality leather, the folds being three-ply. The Camera is fitted with 
Swing Back having an Indicator attached to show when the Camera is plumb. The body 
is of thoroughly-seasoned mahogany and beautifully polished. The brass-work is of the 
best quality and nicely lacquered. Attached to the focussing screen is a folding hood or 
cap, which does away with any need of a focussing cloth. The Camera when closed forms 
iu osrn carrying case, and can be had either in leather or poUshed mahogany. Fig. 1 
■hows the Camera closed, ready for the pocket or carrying case ; Fig. 2 shows the Camera 
on stand with focussing hood extended, also pneumatic release attached (this is supplied 
with all Cameras) ; which enables time or instantaneous pictures to be taken with greater 
ease. The Camera is fitted with adapters to screw on to a stand, and may be used to take 
either horizontal or vertical pictures.

body made of finest polished mahogany, brass work hand- 
flnished and lacquered. It is fitted with rising and falling 
front, to which the bellows is attached, thus preventing any 
cutting on of the picture, swing back with plumb indicator 
attached. The focussing screen has attached to it a folding 
hood, which serves the purpose of a focussing cloth, and at 
the same time protects the glass screen (this can be seen 
extended in some of the preceding cameras). The shutter, 
with speed indicator attached, can be used for 'time,' and up 
to the 1000 part of a second. The focussing is adjusted on an 
ivory scale by rack and pinion. The Cameia when closed 
forms its own carrymg case, all the parts being covered. 
Altogether these Cameras are a distinct advance on any other 
form of focal-plane, and much less in price.

Read the Verdict of Photographic Journals 
on the New ."Chall'-nge" Outfit. 

The Amateiir Photographer. — " The New 
'Challenge' Stand Camera is a model of good 
workmanship and general effleienoy, and com- 
prises all the essential movements included in 
the highest priced instruments." 

The Photographic News. — "It is well made, and 

Is one of the cheapest and hest sets we have seen." 

The Photographic Dealer. — "We must confess cur complete surprise at the value offered 

in this set, for up to within a few weeks ago no one dreamed of purhasing such a set for 

anything like the price."

Made in Spanish mahogany, and corered 
in bestblack leather; focnsses by rack and 
pinion. The shutter is a Thornton-Pickard 
rime and Instantaneous one, with speed 
indicator attached. Can be used equally 
well for hand or stand work, and for both 
purposes very greatly improved focassin^ 
hoods, so as to most perfectly shade the 
ground glass, are attached — a great desid- 
eratum, especially when snap-shooting. 

Advantages derived by using the Tain- Lent 
Camera: The object to be photographed 
can be focus.sed up to the last moment of 
exposure. The full size of the subject being 
on view, composition is possihle, and cor- 
rect centreing, so desirable when photo- 
graphing yachts, etc., is a certainty. When 
used on a tripod it is in every wav as handy 
and as complete as a ordinary field camera. 
With such an instrument the beginner 
cannot make failures.

"CHALLENGE" 
COMBINATION 

CAMERA. 

Has novel features not to be found 
in ordinary camera*. The inetra- 
ment is self-contained, havingr the 
Lens, Shutter, etc., all attached to 
the Camera, therefore no loose 
parts to leave behind when going 
-on a tour. The camera \s of the 
first quality, tiaying every move- 
ment necessary for tne highest class 
of Photography, and is one of the 
most compact and rigid made. The 

slide is book form, with automatic closinfc springs. The 
Shutter is a Thornton-Pickard one, working for botli 
Time and Instantaneous work, and having a Speed 
Indicator attached (List price alone 22s.) The Lens is 
an improved Rapid Bi>ctiliiiear one, with best form of 
Iris Diaphragm and works at F 8. 

The Stand is three-fold, and of the most portable and 
rigid description. The case is of waterproof canvas, 
with band and shoulder straps attached.

LIZARS' "PERFECT" GHANQINB BOX. 

IMPORTANT FEATURES. 
No bags, no sheaths, no Jamming, no scratching, no finger- 
ing of the plates, no mechanism to go out of order. 

The size of the box is 6J in 'ong, 4i in. broad, and 2J in. deep, or 
rather less than the bulk of three double dark slides, and it will hold 
thirty plates or forty films. Only one plate is attached to the Camera, 
thusdoin^raway with the great weight of thirty plates hanging on to the 
back of camera, which is a serious fault wit h all other forms of changers. 
For tourists or any one going on a short holiday it is invaluable, aa 
you are quite independent of a dark room, and saved the trouble of 
loading and unloading dark slides which cannot al^-ays be done at a 
convenient time.

LldHTNINU " PRINT WASHER (Protected). 



Hypo eliminated in five minutes. No 
icratchicg or injury to Prints Invaluable to 
the Amateur and Professional. The Light- 
ning Print Washer is absolutely the only 
perfect machine for this purpose in existence. 

It will remove all traces of Hypo from the 
prints in Jive minutes, and In that time they are 
more thoroughly and perfectly washed than 
they would be after being t«o hours in any 
other washer at present in the market. The 
contaminated water is drawn off from the 
bottom by means of a Syphon. Each print is 
s.ttaehed by the rebate or white edge by a 
brass spring to a revolving drum or cylinder, 
the axle of which rests in two grooved fit- 
tings. The rubber tubing i.s fixed in the usual 
manner to the water tap and the supply pipe ; 
the latter which is perforated, extends the 
full length of the inside of the cylinder. The 
water is now turned on, and the cylinder, 
with prints attached, will at once begin to 
revolve to any required speed, and the surface of each print as it passes the perforated 
supply pipe IS flushed with water from end to end. By this ingenious arrangement of fix- 
ing the prints separately, they cannot come in contact with each other, consequently no 
cloggmg takes place, and when washed they are absolutely free from scratches and 
bruises, which is a inost common occurrence in all other forms of washers. The prints are 
quickly attached and detached from the cylinder, and the cylinder can be taken from or 
put into the washer in an instant. The washer can be used with a rack for washing plates.

IMPORTANT ADVANTAGES. 

GREAT MAGNIFYING POWER.— The magnifying power of the best ordinary Field 
Olass is four times, rarely exceeding, and generally below this estimate. The "UA-NOB" 
Glasses magnify six, eight, and eleven times. 

FOCUSSING ARRANGEMENT— The Focussing Arrangement is a novel one, and does 
away with the trouble of focussing each time the glass is Ubed. When once focassed the 
Instrument requires no further attention, aud is ready for use at any time without readjust- 
ment. This great deaideratum will he at once apparent to military men, as weli as to 
sportsmen and tourists. They are exceedingly portable and light, and are in every respect 
or the best quality.

It is really a first rate Medium, and I shall require a quantity of it. Ihc /inest touches 
are not ski/ted in the least by varnishing.' 

From Mr. W. P. Marsh (the celebrated seascape publisher). Royal Marina Studio,

manv. I have used it now for over twelve months, and mark, all my printing is done in full

stick to the Medium. / can also retouch a negative in half the time I could prei'iously. 

From Mr. E. W. Henderson, Photographer, Auckland, New Zealand. — ' It is a 
grand Medium. I did not like it at first, but with a little use I found out its really

CAMERA. 

An Ideal Camera for

PEDESTRIANS.

Its Advantages:— 

Portability.— It 

measiireswheii closed 
forthepocl:et4j X3in. 
and is only z|in. in 
tliickness, its weigh 
: Iwing lo ozs., while 
' the size of the plate 
- it accommodates is 
3I X 2I in.^ beinjj a 
lialf-jilatedivided into 
f( lur. It fits the 
pocket easily, and it 
IS thinner than other 
[)Ocket cameras which 
only take a view half 
its size. 

Adaptability.— As a Hand Camera it is an ideal, the shape rendering it easy to 
grip, and helping to secure steadiness during exposure ; it is also suited for giving pro- 
longed exposures when placedupon a stand or other support. It can be used at a set 
focus, or can be adjusted for distances. When set up for use it is as rigid as a rock. 

Practicability. — It has finders for horizontal and vertical pictures. The shutter can 
be set for three distinct degrees of instantaneous exposures, and at any moment after it 
has been ret can be altered, if desired, to give time exposures. The lens is anachromalic 
Meniscus of special curvature, guaranteed to work sharply and cover the plate. The 
plate is of such a size and shape as to produce pleasing composition that will make 
standard size lantern slides by contact printing, while enlargements can be produced fi-om 
them in an ordinary optical lantern. When these views are mounted on cards they make 
a neat picture that ran l:>e seen wijhout the aid of a jnagiii'j'ing glass. Four plates can 
be developed in a half-plate dish ; while last, but not least, the plates are only 8:/. a dozen.

improved Expansion Gearing, and Spring Pressure Adjustment, 
which give a perfect working action for various thicknesses of 
mounts. Very simple and effective gas - heating arrangement 
which can be lighted as easily as an ordinary gas jet.

G RANITINE * 



AFTER seven years' experience it is acknowledged that these 
dishes are superior in every respect to the old ones, which 
were made of common earthenware, without any regard for 
the purpose for which they were required. The Granitine Dishes 
are made of a special semi-vitreous body and covered with a hard 
porcelain glaze, and may be used for all photographic chemicals 
indiscriminately, supplying a want long felt both by professionals 
and amateurs. 



e/9 




The Editor of THE BRITISH JOURNAL OF PHOTOGRAPHY 
stated, in a letter to the manufacturers, that he had put them 
to every conceivable test, which they have successfully withstood. 

They have recently been improved by the addition of a 
'rush foot,' as shown above, making them more dense in 
substance than before, and not so liable to adhere to any moisture 
on developing table. 

They may now be had at same price as the common ones, of all 
respectable dealers, and wholesale only from the manufacturers,

. . . THE IMPROVED . . . 

l^ attoiial l^late cnT asbec 

'T'N submittiug the Improved Registered Plate Washer, we 
»-■-» feel confident we are supplying a want long felt by all classes 
of Photographers. The principle we have applied of causing the 
water to enter through the perforations directly between each plate, 
and syphoning out from the bottom of the Washer, ensures the 
complete washing of each plate, whether the Washer happens to be 
quite, or only partially filled with plates. The air-vent at the top 
of the Syphon is also a great advantage, enabling the operator at 
any time to turn off the supply of water, and leave the plates still 
covered with water, as the Syphon-flow will only act when the 
water reaches up to the air-vent ; thus, by simply turning on the 
supply of water again, the Syphon is set in action at once. 

By removing the Cork, when the washing of the plates is com- 
plete, the plates drain themselves ready for drying, and as these 
Washers are on the market at about half-price of our previous 
washer, no doubt an increased demand will ensue.

• YOU SET THE ONE 

SCALE, IT DOES THE 

REST.* 




By Royal 

Letters Patent. 

WYNNE'S INFALLIBLE EXPOSURE METER 

As supplied to H.R.H. The Princess of Wales, the Dncbess of Bedford, &c. 4c. 

The correct Exposure for every speed of Plate on every kind of Subject, and under 
every condition of Light, is shown simultaneously against each of the 27 Graduated 
- - Diaphragnis, by simply setting the Actinometer time on 

exposure scale against the Diaphragm Number of the Plate 
used, or shortly, 

You Bet the one Scale. It doe a the Rest. 

Compare this simple Rule with the complicated 
directions for other Meters. The simplicity of the 
instrument is not attained by ignoring any of the 
factors of Exposure, but by the Scales being so de- 
signed that each of them represents in itself two or 
three of those factors. Thus, the Scale of Dia- 
phragms represent, firstly, the Scale of Dia- 
phragms ; secondly, the Speed of Plate ; 
thirdly, the Variation^ of Exposure due to 
Subject ; whilst the Time Scale represents the 
Actinometer Time and the Exposure in 
Seconds, Minutes, or Hours. 
The Quarter Tint is a most important improvement, 
as it saves 75 per cent, of the time necessary to test the 
light and take an interior, and these operations are 
done simultaneously. 

They are now fitted with our New Patent Exposure Shutter which protects the sensi- 
tive paper from the action of the Light until the moment of exposure, when it is instan- 
taneously uncovered. New Dials and Glass with th'is Shutter and correct Standard 
Tints, price lOd. complete. 

We gladly continue our offer for the coming season to send them on approval, 
returnable within a fortnight. Send for particulars post free, with Reproductions of 
Photog^phs of difficult subjects, the exposures of which, varying from ,^ second 
to li hours were (as certified) timed by the Meter, and the exposures made by persons 
who had never previously taken a photograph. 




W. T. Wilkinson, Photo-Mechanical Expert, Wakefield. — '. . . . I have never lost 
a plate where I have followed its reading. I have tried it in every conceivable way, and 
it has always been right.' 

HooKBR & Sons, Dealers, Brighton. — ' A customer tells us he has timed one from 
fractions of a second to hours in about 6co exposures, and has not had a single failure.'

Important to Professionals and Amateurs using the Carbon and Flatinolype 
Process, and to Engineers using Sun Prints from Tracings. 



WYNNE'S INFALLIBLE PRINT METER. 




(PATENT. 



For Automatically 
Indicating the Correct 
Exposiire required for 
Printing Platlnotype, 
Carbon, Engineer's Sun 
Prints, &c., with abso- 
lute accuracy and with- 
out any calculation 
whatever, and for Test- 
ing the Speeds of Pho- 
tographic Plates and 
Prhits. 

Greatly improved since 
last season. 



RULE. — Expose the Printing Frame and Print Meter at the 
same time, and to the same light, and when the Test Number 
in the Meter just appears readable the Print will always be 
Correctly Exposed. 

3N this simple rule is expressed all that is necessary to observe in order to 
ensure the absolutely correct exposure of Platinotype, Carbon, Engineers' 
Prints, or any other Printing Process requiring development to bring out the 
latent image. The method of timing the exposure is SO simple that It may 
be entrusted to a bo^, or to a person without previous experience, 
if ordinary care is exercised by them. Half a dozen {"rames may be tested at 
the same time with the one Meter. It is already used by many of the leading 
professional photographers, who have expressed the highest approval both of 
Us principle and effectiveness. it ondoubtediy marks the greatest 
advance yet made in instruments for Timing the Exposure of 
Developed Prints. _ 

Sandvcroft Foundry Co., Limited, Hawarden, near Chester. — 'We have great 
pleasure in stating that we have found your Infallible Print Meter most useful for our 
Sun Copying work, and it gives every satisfaction under all conditions of light.' 

Pavne Jennings, Ashtead, Surrey. — ' I have tried your Print Meter and find it a 
very useful adjunct to the printing room.' 

R; W. Morris, Photographer, Chester. — ' I have thoroughly tested your Meter, and 
am highljr pleased with its simplicity of construction and the accuracy with which it auto- 
matically indicates the correct exposure of my Platinotype Prints, the production of whi h 
it greatly simplifies. It is certainly the best thing at present in the market.'

worth anything to be found in every camera on the

A NOVELTY IIV BURNISHERS. 

A MACHINE HEATED BY STEAM. 

AN ENTIRELY NEW PRINCIPLE. 

The 'Helvetia' Bnrnislier. 




^S^HIS Machine is constructed on an entirely new principle, 

the Roller being heated internally by Steam, instead of 

by Gas or Spirit. It is undoubtedly the most perfect and 

best Machine in the market. The working is simplicity itself, 

and the Burnish obtained is magnificent. 



The Advantages of this System are — 

1. The Heat is always equal over the whole length of the 

Roller. 

2. It is impossible to overheat the Roller, hence there is no 

danger of Blistering or spoiling Photographs. 

3. The Roller is always the same temperature, never varj'ing 

4. There are no objectionable Gas Fumes. 

5. It is heated ready for use in from 3 to 5 minutes.

Triad' Pocket Camera 

(PTENT). 

The great point of novelty with 
this Camera is its wonderful 
compactness when closed, which 
is attained in an entirely original 
manner. 

T T closes up in such a convenient form 
-^ that it can be carried in the breast 
pocket witli the same ease as ap ordinary 
pocket book, and its bulk is so unobtru- 
sive that one might have it in the pocket 
for days together without even knowing 
it is there. When required for use, 
however, it is taken from the pocket 
and instantly set up for working by 
one rapid and simple movement, and 
it can be closed and returned to the 
pocket with the same ease and faci lity_ 

The 'TRIAD' POCKET 
CAMERA carries six Plates 
or Films, 3^ x 2J inches, in 
sheaths, changed on the 
well-known bag principle, 
and is fitted with the best 
quality Lens, View Finder, 
Time and Instantaneous 
Shutter with Speed Regula- 
tor, and Indicator showing 
number of plates exposed.

fTHB 'P.K.' ENLAKGING APPARATUS consists of two separate and distinct 
• parts : ist. A sliding metal Tube, with inner tube lined with velvet and 

fitted with Lens, exposing Shutter and Carrier to hold Negatives. 
2nd. A thoroughly well made polished mahogany Enlarging 

Camera with extending base, cloth bellows, and single slide to take 

either Bromide Paper or Plates. 

The Apparatus can be supplied either complete, or where intending pur- 
chasers already possess a suitable Camera, the Sliding Tube fitted with Lens, 
'>:c. is all that is necessary. 

In the latter case a wooden front is supplied for adapting to front of own 
Camera. 

The small wooden Negative Carrier in front of metal tube is made to take 
I'lates or Films 2jxi§ in., and can easily be adjusted in any position, thus 
■iisuring the picture being correctly centred. 

The Sliding Tube front and the Enlarging Camera both being adjustable, 
ny size Enlargement up to 6Jx4J in., such as 4ix3^ in. or 5x4 in., can be 
obtained. This is a decided advantage, as all Negatives will not bear enlarging 
lip to ^-plate, and it is sometimes desirable to enlarge only a portion of the 
Negative to a required size. This cannot be done with a fixed Enlarging 
Apparatus.

C OMPLETE 

£2 5s. 



THE 'RANGER' HAND CAMERA is m every way p.rcci 
All the working parts in connexion with the Shutter, &c. , being sunk in. 
a small space in base of Camera, and there being no projecting parf^ '' 
Camera is thus far less obtrusive than most others. 

THE LENS AND SHUTTER are attached to a front, which is construcit^< ; 
sep)arately from the body, so that if desired they can be easily removed for 
cleaning, &c. , and re-adjusted without difficulty. 

THE CABIERA CARRIES 12 |-PI.ATES in Sheaths, lengthways, this being 
the most generally required position of the Plate. 

THE CHANGING ARRANGEMENT, which is absolutely certain, is effected 
by means of a button on top of Camera, and any exposed Plates can be with- 
drawn from bottom of Camera without interfering with the unexposed ones. 

The Camera is covered in best graiued morocco, and is fitted with two 
BRILLIANT VIEW FINDERS for upright and oblong Pictures, divided with 
lines for ease in centreing the picture ; an AUTO MATIC INDICATOR showing 
number of plates exposed, and a strong handle for carrying. 

THE ACHROMATIC VIEW LENEES are specially selected, and give 
e xcellent results. 7 be sliding Diaphragms are easily adjusted from front of 
Camera. 

THE SHUTTER, which is Ever-set, gives either Time or Instantaneous 
Ezposur es, and the latter can be regulated to give six different sp>eeds, this 
being an advantage which cannot fail to be appreciated.

BEEN ENORMOUS I 



THE FRENA. 

Yes, most people know it is a camera — a good 
camera — not now an expensive camera. They may 
know, also, that it exposes flat films. But how few- 
realise what other qualities the Frena possesses. 

It is a camera which 

Can be Used by the Entire Novice. 

Its manipulation is perfectly simple, and, moreover, 
even that simple manipulation is clearly explained 
in a 

Handbook Accompanying: Each Camera. 

Thus no one need hesitate to commence photography. 
No doubt mistakes, which experience will obviate, 
will be made by the beginner, but a fair proportion

Frena is 

Simple Enough to Content ths Most Accomplished 

Idler. 

The Frenographer may either develop and print 
his own pictures, or they may be sent to us to be 
finished. 

By careful design the adjustments have been 
made extremely simple, yet they are in every way as 
efficient as those of the most elaborate cameras on 
the market. The Frena can be unloaded and 
re-charged with forty fresh films in less than three 
minutes.

placed into the camera in a pack, just as procured 
from the dealers, the pack being merely unwrapped

or one may almost say all hand camera users, 
films are indispensable. Photographic glass plates 
are impossible. Forty plates would weigh several 
pounds instead of ounces. To carry a large supply 
of glass plates on a holiday means a special port- 
manteau. In fact, it is fast being realised that 
photographic 

Films are a Necessity. 

The enormous sale of the Frena has proved that 
our system of exposing films has filled an actual 
want. We are now enabled to offer this camera 
in a new model of a somewhat smaller size 
at a 

CHEAP PRICE. 

The Memorandum Size Frena carries a film 
3^ Inches x 2| Inches, 

which, although smaller than the standard ;^-plate 
size, makes a very satisfactory and useful picture. 

We are also putting on the market a 
Cheap Film called Setol^id, 

on a new support similar to celluloid but with a 
matt surface.

The Frena Film Holder. 




A Magazine and Receiver, Separated. 

The Frena Film Holder can be fitted to any 
Irpod camera, like an ordinary dark slide. 

It carries twenty cut sheet films, or any smaller 
number, and changes these automatically, ' like a 
pack of cards.' 

The Frena Film Holder is adapted to ordinary'- 

cameras by simply planing down the edges of the 

magazine. The only alteration requisite in the camera 

to which it is to be attached is a re-adjustment of 

the focussing screen. If it is desired to avoid even 

this alteration, then another focussing screen, having 

the same register as the Film Holder, may be 

employed.

Extrac ts from Letters from Corresp onileiits. 

— -ss3rsa^— 

Canterbury, x^tk Sept., 1896. — With the Frena No. 00 lam delighted. It is the 
best hand camera I have ever seen in 10 years' experience. 

Nonvich, i^tlt Sept., 1896.— You will be pleased to hear that the Frena I had from 
you is doing splendid work. During my holidays, just over, 1 exposed 18 films and got 
17 pictures, giving splendid detail, the other one being slightly under-exposed ; and I 
must say that the more I use it, the more I regret that I did not have one sooner. 

Edinburgh, i\st Feb., i8g5. — In my opinion no hand camera can touch the 
Frena I 

Tunbridge Wells, ■2\tk April, 1396- I purchased about this time last year one of 
your Frenas, and I must say I never handled a hand camera I like better. 

Alresford, Hants, wthjuly, 1896.— Since I bought a No. 2 Frena from you two 
years ago I have had three other quarter-plate cameras, two of them very expensive 
ones, indeed one of them cost nearly three times as much as the Frena. I had better 
have remained faithful to the Frena, for I Aad it a more useful, simple, and handy 
article than either of the others. 

Bradford. — Having purchased one of your Frenas No 2 three years ago, allow me 
to say that I have great pleasure in bearing testimony to the excellent results that can be 
got by the very charming little instrument. I have no less than four other cameras, but 
for Continental tours, mountain scenery, etc., I am delighted. 

St. Petersburg, 23rd Oct., iSq6.— With the Frena No. 3 you sent me this summer I 
am very contented, it b the nicest hand camera 1 have ever had. 

Mahern, \6tk Nov., 1896. — Frena " Memorandum" arrived safely and gives entire 
satisfaction ; it is a marvel of ingenuity and skill. 

Somtrsct, Aug., 1896. — Having given the 5X4 Frena a good trial I must say I am 
exceedingly pleased with its con>.truclion. The perfect arrangement of magnifiers, its 
.■■moothnei-s in working, and above all the splendid definition of the lens. The tendency 
of most lenses is to fall olT in defiiiiiion as they increase in size, but I find that quality in 
the 5 X 4 as perfect in every way as the \ plate. We have had to wait for the issue of this 
-.ize for a considerable time, but certainly it proves to be worth waiting for. I have just 
purchased one of the Memorandum siie for my son, and it is to my mind a marvel of 
cheapness, the work in it being quite of the Frena quality and class. I doubt not they 
will become exceedingly popular. 

Cambridge, bth Nov., 1896. — My friends' experience with other band cameras have 
proved to me the superiority of my Frena to any camera of the kind in the market. 

llkley, 23rd Sept., 1896. — The Frena No. 3 is the very best hand camera I have ever 
used, and works perfectly. 

Sarawak, 6th Sept., 1896. — I have received the Frena which was ordered from you 
in January last, -and I cannot say too much of it. Some American gentlemen who 
happened to come to this country to explore were delighted with it, and said that there 
was no camera made in the States that could compare with it.

In a trying Climate HINTOKINONE is always reliable.

90 DEGREES in the SHADE, and 40 DEGREES below ZERO. 

BV&OPE. — From Alfred T. Cook, Surveyor, Worthing : — ' I found your Hinto- 
KiNONE most satisfactory in Finland during the severe winter of 1892-93, the thermometer 
registering 40 degrees below Zero F.' 

ASIA.— From Colonel E. Mockler, H. B. M. Con.sul-General, Bagdad : — ' I shall 
feel obliged by your sending me another 28/6 case of your Hintokinone Developer. I 
have found it to be an excellent developer, and well under control.' 

Ami C A.— From W. V. Tanner, Esq., Vice-Consulate, Opobo :—' Hinto- 
kinone appears to be a most satisfactory developer for hot climates, as it is as good as 
ever, although the temperature is frequently over 90 degrees F." 

AMEKZCA. — From E. R. Anson, Esq., Morawhanna, British Guiana: — 'Please 
send me another dozen 5-ounce bott4es of Hintokinone. It keeps admirably here, and 
I always use it for my negatives.'

THE BEST OF ALL I THE CHEAPEST OF ALL II 
THE MOST COMPACT OF ALL III 



HINTOKINONE 



Reasons for the extraordinary popularity of HINTOKINONE. 

does the best possible work with the least 
possible trouble ; requires only simple 
dilution with cold water, and is ready for 
use instantaneously. There is no wait- 
ing for something to dissolve. A small 

5 -ounce bottle will make 50 ounces of Developer in such quantities 

as may be required from time to time. 

HINTO-KINONE will develop all good plates, films, and papers. 
HINTO-KINONE does not stain the fingers nor create sores and 
skin diseases upon the hands. 

HINTO-KINONE ^as proved for seven years that its virtues remain 
unimpaired by time or climate, either tropical or arctic. 

HINTO-KINONE is an Expert's developer; the finest possible 
effects are obtained by it. The softness and delicacy of the half- 
tones cannot be improved upon, and density may lie obtained to any 
extent by the graduated addition of Bromide Solution, according to 
the Instructions supplied with each bottle. It is never necessary, as 
in the case of some so-called developers, to employ secondary 
development to obtain sufficient density for printing purposes. 

HINTO-KINONE is a Beginner's developer; you cannot improve 
upon it, and if you cannot fetch a good negative with HINTO- 
KINONE it is a waste of time and material to try anything else. 

HINTO-KINONE produces the richest and most pleasing tones for 
Lantern Slides and Decorative Transparencies. 

HINTO-KINONE is generally acknowledged to be unequalled; it 
has fairly beaten every other developer in the market, and is 
annually increasing its sales by leaps and bounds. 

HINTO-KINONE is so concentrated, compact and portable, that the 
space it requires is not so great as is required by the solid substances 
of any published formula for the same quantity of the diluted 
developer. 

HINTO-KINONE is not 'Made in Germany.' It is manufactured 
at 38 Bedford Street, Strand, London, W.C. The substances 
employed in its preparation are derived from English sources only. 

HINTO-KINONE has never required apologies and explanations to 
be formulated for failures and disappointments attributable to any 
irregularity of its action — it is always the same, reliable, uniform, 
and satisfactory. It has never been found necessary to announce 
'Improvements' in the manufacture of HINTO-KINONE.

'LE MERVEILLEUX"

THIS is a capital Camera, made of maliogany, well framed together, with a bellows 
body, which makes the Camera very portable. The Focussing Slide is hiiiged, and 
folds over on to the top of Camera when dark slide is in the Camera. Tae slide 
reverses in an instant, so that a vertical or horizontal photo can be taken without 
moving any part of the Camera. 




Each Set consists of Camera, Double Dry Slide, I<ens and Stand.

Le Meritoire " Patent. 



THE 1898 Lk Meritoire is an excellent apparatus for a beginner. It has a very good 
Lens in Hackwork Mount, which covers the plate clean and crisp from corner to 
corner. Tlie camera has double Swing Back ; vertical, horizontal, and comer swing 
being obtained. The slide reverses in an instant from vei-tical to horizontal without 
moving any part of Camera. The Stand has a brass top and bniss clips.

THE Swing Back is most essential when the Camera is required for Architectural 
work, and also the Rising Fronts are indispensable for the same kind of work— in 
fact, it is impossible to get true Architectviral line unless we have both the Swing 
Back and Rising Front. 



Each Set consists of Camera, Double Dry Slide, Lkn.s and Stand.

Over 20,000 have been already sold, and the demand is increasing enormously, 




THE "SEB-SAW" PATENT. 

The Shutter opens and closes in the centre, and consists of two

allows shutter to open only, and on release of pressure on pump, to close ; 
by turning lever upwards, the shutters shoot across at a high sjaeed, 
regulated by pressure on pump.

'T'HB " RovHR " is one of the most perfect Cameras ever put in the market ;it conBista 
■ of practically three charabei's, (A) a space on top holding twelve Plates or Films in 
our new patent Sheaths or Carriers, (B) the Camera proper, and (C) a space at back to 
hold twelve plates after exposure. Bach chamber is light-proof. 

The method of exposure is as follows:— Press Lever at bottom of Camera slightly for- 
ward, this allows one Plate to fall, tlen mtve Lever backward and Plate falls into position. 

The plate, after exposure, goes into back chamber, a Venetian shutter being opened 
and closed. 



The Lens is a specially 
made one, very rapid, with 
See-saw Shutter, Patent Adjust- 
able Diaphragms, and each 
Camera has a Finder. The 
whole is enclosed in a best 
Leather Case, of most con- 
venient and handy size. 

Only one Plate is in Camera 
at time of exposure, all others 
aio in light-proof chambers. 

The Camera is exceedingly 
simple in use.

PREFACE. 



Last year's volume of The British Journal PHOTooRArHic Almanac 
bronght me so many expressions of appreciation from its readers in all 
parts of the world that no other indaoement was needed to gnide me in 
compiling the present issue on as nearly as possible identical lines. The 
rearrangement of the contents then adopted has consequently been 
adhered to on this occasion. Some small additions to the Formula; 
E6ction have been made, and I have endeavoured in the remaining 
divisions of the book to epitomise as fully as possible all the impoitant 
advances and improvements in practical photography that have taken 
place during ihe past year. 

Lack of space has obliged me to omit many interesting articles, while 
other considerations have also necessitated the neglect of numerous 
Euggestions that have rf ached me from time to time, having for object the 
enhancfment of the Almanac's usefulness. 

To Messrs. Wellington <fe Ward, for the frontispiece; to Messrs. 
Waterlow; to the London Stereoscopic Company; and to Messrs. 
Smedley & Co., my thanks are due, and are hereby tendered, for the 
illustrations interspersed in the text matter. 

The miscellaneous articles, by over a hundred contributors, supply a 
wealth of useful and informative reading ; and I beg the authors to 
accept my warmest acknowledgments of their support. The writing of 
this biief preface to the Almanac is a task that is as pleacant as it is 
eimple, for it is the one opportunity in the year that falls to me of 
adopting the first person singular towards a world-wide circle of readers 
of The British Journal of Photography and the Aliunac, and of 
enabling me to say that I wish them and photography every prosperity 
in the New Year.

When the subject reflects a large proportion of green and yellow 
rays, or when the light is hazy or yellowish, the relative speed of the 
Iso plates is much higher. 

The screen glasses are made in two tints - No. i for the average 
everyday work, increases the exposure about three times ; No. 2 for 
copying and extreme subjects, increases the exposure about six times. 
The larger screens are made square, instead of circular.

The unit of French liquid measures is a cubic centimetre. 

A cubic centimitre of water measures nearly 17 minims (16'896) ; it 
weighs 15'4 grains, or 1 gramme. A cubic inch of water weighs 252*5 
grains. 

The unit of French weights ia the gramme •» 15*4 grains ; tiius a 
drachm (60 grains) is nearly 4 grammes (3-88). An easy way to convert 
grammes into English weight is to divide the sum by 4, which gives the 
equivalent in drachms very nearly thus : —

THE METRICAL SYSTEM. 

By Geobge Feenau. 

In the appended comparative tables of British and metrical weights and 
measures, the following metrical units and their equivalents have been 
adopted as the basis of calculation, viz. : — 

The Metre. 

The metre, as a unit of length, represents the ten-millionth part of a 
meridian, drawn from the Pole to the Equator. A centimetre, as the 
name implies, is the hundredth part of a metre; and a kilometre is 
equal to one thousand metres. 

1 Metre = 39-371 inches. 

1 Yard = 0914 metre. 

1 Mile = 1-609 kilometres. 

The Litre. 

The litre, as the unit of capacity, represents the cube of a tenth part 
of a metre, a cubic centimetre (c. c.) thus being the thousandth put of a 
litre. 

1 Litre = 1-761 pints. 

1 Gallon = 1-543 litres. 

The Gramme. 

The gramme, as the unit of weight, corresponds to the thousandth 
part of the weight of a litre of distilled water at its greatest density. 
One thousand grammes represent one kilogramme. 

1 Gramme = 15-432 grains. 

1 Grain = 0-005 grammes. 

1 Pound (avoirdupois) = 0-454 kilogrammes. 

1 Hundredweight = 50-800 

Gemkbal Bbhabks. 

Centimetres, metres, and kilometres, grammes and kilogrammes, and 
litres and millimetres (millimetres are usually called, for the measure of 
capacity, cubic centimetres, c. c), are, as a rule, in the metrical system, 
and more especially for photographicai purposes, the only weights and 
measures used on the Continent ; the kilometres, kilogrammes, and 
litres for large quantities, and the subdivisions for small quantities. 
On such usage our tables are made out.

How TO Use the Tables. 

The last column in both tables represents the multiplying term for 
any nnit in either system cf weights and measures. Tbns, 1 drachm, 
fluid (troy), being 3-514 cubic centimetres (c.c), 6 drachms will be 
6x3-544, or 21-264 c.c, or 21 J c.c. more or less. In the same way, 
1 drachm, s )lid (avoirdupois), being 1-772 grammes, 6 drachms will be 
6 X 1-772, or 10-632, or 10| grammes more or less. As examples in the 
other table, 1 gramme being 15-432 grains, 10 grammes will be 154-32 
grains; or 1 gramme being 0035 ounce, solid (avoirdupois), 100 grammes 
will be 350 ounces, or 3J.

^ PLATES. 

September 1st, 1897. 
Messrs. ELLIOTT & SON, Barnet 

Dear Sirs,- It gives me unqualified pleasure to be 
able to testify as to the quality of your plates. I have, as 
you are aware, been using them exclusively in all my 
studios for the past year. You know in such a busi- 
ness as mine the varied demands which are made on 
a plate, and I can confidently affirm that for all classes 
of work, in my opinion, your plates are unequalled. 

Yours faithfully, 

J. LAFAYETTE, 

Of London, Dublin, Glasgow and Manchester.

There are few Plates suit- 
able for recording objects 
in motion, such as birds 
on the wing, animals run- 
ning and jumping, owing 
to the fact that few Plates 
will stand the necessary 
forcing to bring out full 
detail

TBB cubic centimetre, nsnally represented by ' c. c,' is the unit of the French 
measorement for liquids. It contains nearlv seventeen minims of water ; in 
reality, it contains 16 896 minims. The weight of this quantity of water is one 
gnunme. Hence it will be seen that the cubic centimetre and the gramme bear 
to each other the same relation as our drachm for solids and the drachm for 
fluids, or as the minim and the grain. The following table will prove to be 
sufficiently accurate for photographic purposes : — 

1 cubic centimetre = 17 minims (as near as possible).

SUMMARY. 



One of the features of the past year has been the great development of 
animated photography, which forms the subject of the editorial article 
that follows this summary. This development has been so marked as to 
give an unmistakable impetus to several branches of photographic 
industry — notably celluloid film and apparatus manufacture. We have 
every confidence that still further developments await this department of 
photography. 

Colour Photography. 

Colour photography in the earlier part of the year attracted no incon- 
siderable amount of notice, but of actual progress there is nothing to 
record. Mr. Bennetto, in the spring, showed by projection a number of 
transparencies in natural colours, which excited much admiration and 
discussion ; but the process was not revealed, and at the time of writing 
nothing whatever is known of it. In February a process due to Messrs. 
Dansac & Chassagne was introduced. The results, in the forms both of 
transparencies and albumen paper prints, were put forward as natural 
colour effects obtained by what was alleged to be selective colour absorption 
— that is to say, the surface of the transparency or print was understood 
to be treated with a special solution which imparted to it the property, 
when red, green, and blue solutions were applied to it, of selecting the 
colours of the original in their proper order and relation. Notwithstanding 
the association of the names of some eminent men with the process, and 
the attempt to publicly demonstrate that it really was what it was alleged 
to be, there has been a complete failure to substantiate the claims that 
were made for it, and it is generally agreed that the Dansac-Chassagne 
process of natural-colour photography was simply a method of colouring 
prints with aniline compounds. On its merits the subject is not entitled 
to a more extended reference here, and those who require further details 
of a by no means satisfactory chapter in the chequered history of colour 
photography are referred to the volume of The British Journal of 
Photography for 1897, wherein the Dansac-Chassagne process receives 
considerable attention in detail.

Halation — Badioobaphy — Acettlbne, &o. 

Halation and the backing of platea is a subject to whioh practical 
photographers have addressed themselves with great interest during the 
year, and in the section of the Almanac headed ' Practical Notes and 
Experiences of the Year,' the reader will find a great deal of information 
bearing on the various preparations advocated for application to the 
glass sides of plates. Some of the dry-plate makers now send out 
plates ready backed with anti-halative substances that are removable 
without difficulty. 

Radiography has failed to sustain its interest among photographers, 
although it is still a subject of unremitting experiment and investigation 
amongst chemists and physicists. In hospital, medical, and surgical 
practice, however, it is of enormous value, and it appears probable that, 
as an adjunct of the healing art. Professor Rontgen's discovery will long 
be gratefully recogniped. It is interesting to note that Foreign Custom 
House officials are stated to find the X rays directly serviceable in 
the examination of travellers' luggage, c&c. 

The action of the Home Office in placing calcic carbide under the 
provisions of the Explosives Act, early in the year, threw a check on the 
progress of acetylene as a photographic illuminant, but the regulation 
has been modified to the extent of permitting small quantities of the 
carbide to be stored, and, with the insurance offices disposed to take a 
less unfavourable view of the danger of the new light, there is hope that 
the full possibUities of the light for projection and general work will, in 
due course, be availed of. 

GsNERAIi PhOTOORAPHT. 

In the spring of 1898 the Royal Photographic Society propose 
holding, at the Crystal Palace, Sydenham, a great International Photo- 
graphic Exposition, which shall be fully representative of the present 
position of photography in all its aspects. There is every indication 
that the Exhibition will be well supported. 

The half-tone and three-colour block processes appear to be gsuning- 
in public favour, and steady advances are apparent in the quahties (rf' 
the results. 

With regard to ordinary photographic work, practically no change 
has to be chronicled. Glass as the favourite support for gelatino-bromide 
emulsion does not appear likely to be soon displttced, although several 
substitutes have been introduced. Anastigmatic flat-fielded lenses of 
large aperture are daily coming into greater use, and are gradually 
displacing older and less efficient forms. 

With few exceptions, representative institutions in photography con- 
tinue to widen their sphere of action. The Royal Photographic Society 



189«] AND PHOTOOBAPHSb's DAItY OOkPAlHON. 68© 

is steadily increasing its membership, and, under the Presidency of the 
Earl of Crawford, is pursuing a policy of usefulness to the cause of 
photographic progress. The Photographic Convention and the Photo- 
graphic Copyright Union have records of successful effort to show for the 
past year of their existence. A reference to the directory of photographic 
Societies will show that these useful bodies have not decreased in 
number, and there appears to be no doubt that the hold which photo- 
graphy has secured upon the public as a pursuit and pastime is not 
slackening. 

Due chiefly to the energy of Sir J. Benjamin Stone, M.P., there has 
been established a National Photographic Becord Association, the object 
of which is to collect photographic records of objects and scenes of 
interest throughout the British Isles with a view of depositing them in 
the British Museum, where they may be safely stored and be accessible 
to the pnbUo under proper regulations. 

The Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty led to considerable photo^ 
graphic activity, although, in common with many other industries, 
photography was said to have suffered from the great displacement of 
trade which that historical event induced ; but, on the whole, from what- 
soever point it may be regarded, photography in 1897 exhibited unmis- 
takably progressive tendencies, and the outlook for 1898 is distinctly 
encouraging and symptomatic of continued progress.

Journal of Photography a remarkable paper describing his discovery of 
a bromide emulsion dry plate, and also the use of an alkaline developer. 
In later years he was for some time editor of the Photographic News, and 
contributed to other photographic journals. As a writer on sdentifio

snbjects, photography, engineering, and chemical industries were treated 
by him in a broad and comprehenslTe manner, especially those which 
had any application to photography ; and lectures upon chemistry and 
experimental physics at the Boyal Institution and other scientific bodies, 
both English and foreign, were never lost sight of. 

George Dawson. 
The late George Dawson, at the time of his death, was in his seventy- 
seventh year, and will be remembered by reason of his long association 
with King's College, in the capacity of Professor of Photography. He 
was formerly one of the editors of The British Journal ok Photo- 
graphy, and was joint author, with the late Thomas Sutton, of The 
Dictionary of Photography. He also edited one of the earlier editions of 
Hardwich's Photographic Chemistry, 

P. Mkaoh£r. 
Mr. Meagher had been engaged in the production of photographic 
cameras for about half a century. He was formerly in the employ of the 
well-known camera-maker, Ottewill, who may be regarded as the source 
to which the best school of English camera-making traces its origin. If 
his name is not associated with the introduction of any very great novelty 
of design in the construction of cameras — we believe the side flap as a 
support for the camera body is the only distinctly original feature with 
which he can be credited — there is no doubt that a Meagher camera was 
long worthily put forward by practical photographers as a model of 
efficiency, durability, and excellence of construction. 

E. Rennitt. 

Mr. Eennett, at the time of his death, was aged 79. It was in the 
year 1874, when the gelatino-bromide process was in the experimental 
stage, that Mr. Eennett, on Jane 9, read a paper before the London 
Photographic Society, in which he fully described his mode of preparing 
gelatino-bromide pellicle. He was also the inventor of Eennett's stand. 
There is no doubt that his experiments in the preparation of gelatine 
pellicle gave a great impetus to dry-plate photography. 

M. Carey Lea. 

It was not only in connexion with The British Journal of Photo- 
ORAFBY, or with photography, that Mr. Carey Lea was known, for, in 
spite of his once prolific contributions — and how numerous these were 
readers of twenty and thirty years ago will remember — he found time to 
devote himself to other researches, chemical as well as physical, the

l89Jj] AND PHOTO GBAPHBH'S DAtLY COMPANION. 641 

results of which were contributed to various scientific papers, but chiefly 
to Silliman's Journal, and occasionally the Journal of the Franklin 
Inttitute. But it is naturally in connexion with photography that he was 
best known. One of the earhest, and at that time perhaps one of the 
most practically useful, of his contributions was that in which he de- 
scribed his plate-cleaning solution, composed of bichromate of potash and 
sulphuric acid, a mixture that prored so effective, not only for that pur-- 
pose, but for removing old films, and as a general laboratory detergent, 
that it became almost universally adopted, and familiarly known as 
• Carey Lea.' The ferro-gelatine developer was another of his valuable 
oontributions to wet-plate photographic practice, and consisted of a 
chemical combination of gelatine with the ordinary iron developer, which 
resulted in the deposition of the metallic silver, under the influence of the 
organic matter, in a much fin^r and closer state of division, and the con- 
sequent formation of a denser image. Originally published in 1865, the 
process of preparation was improved and simplified some years later, and 
it is not improbable that, had wet plates remained in general use, this 
combination would, ere now, have entirely displaced pyro, both for 
development and intensification. Another of his laboratory formulae, of 
about the same date, was the method of intensification by means of 
Scblippe's salt, a sulphide of sodium and antimony, which would, even 
at the present day, find wider use in process work were it not for the evil- 
smelling character of the chief material. Mr. Carey Lea's name will be 
inseparably connected with collodion emulsion whenever the history of 
emulsion photography may be written. He took up the collodio-bromide 
process in 1866 or 1867, and kept working at that, or ' washed' emulsion, 
without intermission, right away until collodion was practically suppressed 
by gelatine. 

This was the great point in Carey Lea's view of emulsion photography 
— free silver — and to him is due, undoubtedly, the credit of pointing oat 
its use and value, though possibly modern workers, like many of the older 
ones, would differ from him in some of the details. The late Colonel 
Wortley, indeed, went further than Carey Lea in the matter of free silver, 
alleging that it was necessary to saturate the emulsion with free silver. 
Other modifications of the original process consisted in the addition of 
iodide and chloride of silver to the emulsion, points which also gave rise 

very considerable controversy, while, as to the variations in "pre- 
servatives " and " organifiers " tried and recommended, it would be im- 
possible to mention them. Carey Lea, however, introduced the method 
in a practical way of adding the organifier to the emulsion, so that the 
latter only required to be poured on to the glass and washed before use. 

On the introduction of Mr. W. B. Bolton's washed collodion emulsion 
in 1874, Carey Lea was not slow to recognise its advantages, and at ono^ 



642 THB BBITI8H JOtTtlNAI. PHQTOOAAPHIC AJMASAC, [189S 

began experimenting, with the resalt that in 1875 or 1876 he'pnbliBhed 
his waBhed-ohlorido-broznide process, possessing a degree of rapidity far 
surpassing wet collodion. Whether this or similar processes Tvould ever 
have come into general use is open to qaestion, as the resalt of Carey 
Lea's experiments was rather to rob the original process of its simplicity 
without adding greatly to its advantages. Thus the precipitation of the 
emulsion, containing a large access of free silver, by means of a solution 
containing tannin, galUc and acetic acids, may be imagined to be one of 
some dehcacy and requiring some manipulative skill to ensure success. 

In 1870 he published a Manuxl of Photography, which went through 
two or three editions, and, though comparatively httle known in this 
country, it is one of the best and most complete all-round works we have 

F. W. Edwards, F.R.P.S. 

He first carried on business in the Albany-road as an architectural 
photographer, and later, for a very long period, at 87, Bellenden-road, 
I'eckham. For about two years he was connected with the firm of W. BL 
Ward & Co., Limited, Shaftesbury-avenue, and, on leaving them about 
twelve months ago, he recommenced business on his own account in 
Newman-street, Oxford-street. 

About the time of the erection of the Albert Memorial, his photo- 
graphs of the groups of statuary forming parts of it attracted attention. 
Later, his photographs of numerous Tinworth panels, taken on 23 x 18 
plates, some of which were exhibited on the walls of the Boyal Photo- 
graphic Society's Exhibitions, brought him more into prominent notice. 
Latterly, he produced a very large number of cathedral interiors of a 
similar size. For some years he was a regular exhibitor — principally at 
the Royal and Falmouth, and received nearly thirty awards. 

As a platinotype worker he was well known, and was almost the first, 
if not the first, to publicly demonstrate the hot-bath process, and handled 
with great ease prints of nearly fifty inches in length. 

In July, 1889, he was unanimously appointed President of the second 
South London Photographic Society, and was annually, without any 
opposition, re-elected to that office. * .

ANIMATED PHOTOGRAPHY. 

By The Editob. 

Thk widespread interest with which what is conveniently called 
• Animated Photography ' is regarded by photographers and the general 
public, possibly justifies both the belief that its selection as the topic of 
the principal article in this Almanac will be acceptable to its readers, 
and the hope that the information here presented may be of service to 
those of them who have not had an opportunity of studying the subject. 
I at once admit that the following chapters are by no means exhaustive, 
but it is probable that they give, in a connected form, a fuller reference 
to the matter than has hitherto appeared in a photographic publication. 
Animated photography, at the time of writing, is obviously only in 
the earlier stages of development. The wonder and interest which the 
contemplation on the lantern screen of the representation of objects 
appearing to move in the order of nature still provokes does not, of 
course, disguise the fact that much remains to be accomplished in the 
mechanics of this branch of photography before it can reasonably be 
claimed that the fullest justice has been done to its possibilities. 

It will be observed that I have chosen the term ' animated 
photography ' as the title of this series of chapters. Strictly speaking, 
its accuracy as a descriptive term is open to question ; but, of the in- 
numerable names that have been applied to this branch of photography, 
it is, perhaps, the one which most easily conveys what is meant in a 
universally understood form ; hence its adoption here. 

I I.— PEESISTENCE OF VISION. 

■ To understand the principles upon which animated photography is 
based necessitates some knowledge of the underlying theory involved, viz., 
persistence of vision ; but, fortunately, this does not place a heavy tax 
on the understanding, as that theory is exceedingly simple to realise. 
• The retina of the eye has the physiological property of retaining for a 
brief time the impression of an image after the object which has produced 
it has disappeared. The duration of this retinal picture is estimated at 
one-tenth of a second ; so that, if an image is placed before our eyes ten 
times in a second, the idea of discontinuity is lost, and the images appear 
to be in continual evidence. If the images shown to us are represented 
in the successive positions assumed by the object in motion, the im- 



644 THB BRITISH JOUBNAL PHOTOGBAPHIC ALMANAC, [1898 

pression conveyed to the eye is that of a continuous movement without 
intermission. If the photographs are presented to the eye at the same 
intervals as separate the successive exposures, the movement will appear 
as if it actually took place.' * 

This property of the retina is termed persistence of vision, and it will 
be easily understood, from the clear definition given in the preceding 
paragraph, what bearing the phenomenon has upon animated photo- 
graphy. When the series of photographs is being passed across the 
surface upon which they are projected, the eye is receiving probably 
between ten and thirty impressions per second; and, although these 
impressions reach the retina separately, it will be understood that in 
consequence of the fact that each impression remains for an appreciable 
length of time upon the retina before it is, so to speak, obliterated by 
those which succeed it, the effect upon the brain is not that of a series of 
disconnected and independent communications, but of a continuous and 
persistent sensation. Hence it is that we get the phenomenon of 
apparent motion on the screen with which every one is now familiar. 

In a valuable papert on the Cinematograph for attaching to the 
lantern, to which I shall again make reference, Mr. F. C. B. Cole 
illustrates, or rather defines, this phenomenon of the persistence of 
vision in a way which those who are acquainted with electricity may 
particularly appreciate. 

• Describing it to an electrician,' he says, • I might speak of it as 
" self-induction of the optic nerve." We find several analogies to this in 
electrical matters ; for instance, the " persistence " of the arc in an 
ordinary arc lamp is just the property which enables it to be run on an 
alternating current circuit, for the reason that in a direct current system 
the arc appears to exist for a short time after the current has been cut 
off ; thus, when run on an alternating system, the arc is maintained 
during the period of reversal ; should the period of alteration become 
longer than the persistence of the arc, the light fails. However, the 
whole thing is summed up in this, that, when an image momentarily falls 
upon the retina of the eye, under ordinary conditions, it gradually fades 
away, {ind an appreciable time elapses before it entirely disappears.' 

I quoted above from Marey's book on Movement. To avoid mis- 
conception, it may be well to state that this valuable work does not 
dea at any length with the subject of animated photography. It is 
what is termed chrono-photography that has long formed an object 
of study and experiment with this eminent savant, and by its aid he has 
been enabled to obtain much valuable photographic information relating 
to the analysis of movement of animals, fish, insects, human beings

quadrupeds, &o. But the synthetic reconstruction of those movements 
is obviously of secondary importance to tlie analysis of the various 
methods of locomotion, with which M. Marey has almost entirely 
occupied himself, so that the book lies somewhat outside the scope of 
animated photography. Nevertheless, the two branches of work 
parallelise at times, so that it is difficult for anybody who is interested in 
the photographic reproduction of the curves and positions taken by 
animals and moving bodies in their progression to be wholly indifl'erent 
to the purely pictorial side of the subject which animated photography 
clearly is. M. Marey's book, aside of these considerations, is a masterly 
treatise on the subject of the analysis of movement, and well deserves 
studying for itself. 

II.— HISTOEICAL NOTES. 

The history of animated photography may be said to begin with the 
enunciation of the principles of the persistence of vision, about 100 years 
ago by Plateau who put those principles into practice by the production 
of an instrument termed the Phenakistosoope. This consisted of a card- 
board disc perforated at equal distances round the periphery by small 
slits. One side of the disc was blackened, and on the others a series of 
images were arranged representing men or animals in the various attitudes 
which corresponded to the successive stages of movement. When the disc 
was spun round on its axis opposite to a mirror and the eye applied to 
the blackened side on a level with the revolving slits, the reflections of the 
various images were seen one after another corresponding to the different 
attitudes assumed by the original object ; thus conveying the impression 
of actual movement*. It is worthy of note that, as early as a century 
ago, we have a fulfilment of the essential conditions of successful animated 
photography — the rapid presentation to the eye of a series of successive 
pictures, each differing slightly from those that precede and follow it. 

Plateau's instrument was, of course, improved upon in detail, but its 
principle has never wholly been departed from. Typical of the various 
adaptations to which it gave rise may be mentioned the well-known 
Zoetrope, or wheel of life (introduced about 1845), which still survives, 
and is capable of affording endless amusement in the famUy circle, and 
to young people. The Zoetrope consisted of a cylindrical chamber 
revolving on a vertical axis. Narrow upright slits were made round the 
brim, and inside the cylindrical wall a strip of paper was pasted, a series 
of images depicting the successive attitudes of a figure in motion. The 
cylinder being revolved, and the eye being placed axially to the slits, the 
impression of movement was, of course, obtained. 

I am reminded by a friend that recently there was an article in the 
Photographische Corretpondenz, by R. J. Saohers, of New York, on the 
• Marey, p. 307. 



B46 THK BBITIBH JOVnSAIj PHOTOOBAFHIC AIMANXC, [1896 

projection of oonsooative piotares. He points out that Captain Franz von 
Uchatius was the first to produce moving pictares in such a manner 
that a large number of people could see them simultaneously. Lieut. 
Field Marshal Bitter von Hauslab commissioned Captain Uchatius to 
endeavour to construct an instrument that would enable a number of 
spectators to see pictures by the Stampfer method — the stroboskopic disc. 
Uchatius invented such a machine, and obtained satisfactory results in 
1845. He perfected his machine, and exhibited it in 1853 before the 
Imperial Academy of Science. The pictures were printed in transparent 
colours, and inserted in a wooden disc in the form of a circle, with equal 
intervening spaces. A second disc was provided with apertures in the 
form of a sector of a circle, each aperture corresponding to one of the 
pictures. This answered the purpose of the slits in Stampfer's disc. 
Both discs were mounted on the same axis, and turned by a handle. 
The whole was enclosed in a light-tight case, the only apertures being 
for the objective and the iiandle. When the diMos were rotated, the 
images formed a moving picture. 

Mr. Cole tells us that ' about 1869 or 1870 came the Praxinoscope, 
by Baynaud, an instrument which was of the same style as the 
Zoetrope, only the pictures were seen reflected in revolving mirrors. 
At this time we also hear of a Photoscope, by Mr. Talbot, in which 
microscopic views on glass were viewed through a lens as transparencies, 
and, as they rapidly succeeded each other, the eSect of animation was 
produced ; this,' he remarks, ' appears to be the first instrument of the 
kind to take advantage of photography.' * 

On the other hand, Mr. Snowden Ward* credits Louis Ducos du 
Hauron, the French experimentalist in three-colour photography, with 
the invention in 1864, two French patents standing in his name, pre- 
sumably for the photographic application of the principle, although it is 
not so expressly stated. 

The Zoetrope and its congeners did not exhaust the non-photo- 
graphic applications of the idea. Muybridge painted from his photo- 
graphs of horses on to glass discs, and projected them by means of the 
lantern. Solid figures, too, were used in the Zoetrope, and the latter was 
subsequently adopted by Anschutz for reproductions of photographs, 
and is now sold or exhibited under the name of the Tachyscope. Muy- 
bridge and Anschutz, by their photographic studies of animal locomotion, 
and the exhibition by projection of the results, undoubtedly brought us 
appreciably nearer to the realisation of animated photography as we now 
know it. Muybridge, as is well known, used a series of electrically con- 
trolled cameras for recording the phases of movement of a horse passing 
in front of them. 

It appears to have escaped notice that, at the Chester meeting of the 
* Knowledge, September 1, 1897. 



1 



1898J AND PHOTOOBAPHBb's DAILY COICPANION. 647 

Photographic Convention of the United Kingdom, in Jnne, 1890,* Mr. 
Friese-Greene introdnoed his camera for taking a series of photographs 
in rapid succession. Negatives by its agency were shown in the form of 
a long ribbon of celluloid impressed with a large number of negatives. 
The apparatus by which the pictures were to have been shown on the 
screen was, however, deranged, so that the audience were deprived of the 
opportunity of witnessing the full effects intended to be reproduced. He 
exhibited a camera which, he stated, would take a series of negatives at 
the rate of 600 per minute. He also read a paper dealing with the 
subject of persistence of vision, and its relation to the production and 
projection of animated photographs. 

But the greatest impetus to animated photography was probably 
given by Mr. Edison, who, in 1893, produced series of photographs of 
moving objects on perforated strips of sensitive celluloid films, such as 
we are now familiar with. The positives from the negatives thus made 
were converted into endless bands, and these, being electrically driven, 
and illuminated, were viewed through a magnifying eyepiece, and, as 
between the eyepiece and the moving band a rotating slotted disc was 
interposed, which presented a new picture to the eye at each successive 
revolution, the observer obtained all the impressions of movement in the 
pictures. The Kinetoscope, as it was called, was exceedingly popular 
for a time, and there is no doubt that it was the immediate forerunner of 
the present system of viewing animated photographs on the screen, 
rather than as translucent films. 

Probably the earliest to take advantage of Mr. Edison's obvious hint 
were Messrs. A. & L. Lumi6re,t who, on July 11, 1895, gave an ex- 
hibition of animated photographs, at the offices of the Reveu Generate 
des Sciences, in Paris, at which the evolutions of cuirassiers, a house on 
fire, a factory, street scenes, and a dinner party were shown on the 
screen, and much admired. In view of subsequent developments, it may 
be interesting to reproduce the brief description of Messrs. Lumiere's 
Cinematograph as it was then given : ' The principal features are a 
mechanism whereby the film is at rest during illumination, and an 
arrangement for projecting the images upon a screen so as to be visible to 
a large meeting. Under these circumstances, fifteen images a second are 
all that is necessary. The film is at rest for two-thirds of the time of 
the passage of each image. During the remaining third the film is 
grasped and pulled forward as far as the next image by a set of teeth 
attached to a frame, whose motion is governed by a cam, working by a 
revolving handle. The same apparatus also serves for taking the photo- 
graphs, and for printing transparencies from the negative film. For this

porpoae two films are passed over the rollers, the negative and the film to 
be printed on, and exposure is made for a very short time as each negative 
image is placed on the field.' 

On January 14, 1896, Mr. Birt Acres gave, at the Boyal Photographic 
Society, a demonstration of what he then termed the Kinetic lantern for 
the projection of animated photographs.* These were taken at the rate 
of about forty per second, and were projected at the rate of about fifteen 
per second. The examples included boxers, a review at Kiel by the 
German Emperor, Epsom Downs, and the Derby, serpentine dancing, 
breaking waves, <&o. 

Let it be observed that, in this very brief account of the historical 
development of animated photography, I have eschewed all mention of 
Patent Office records, £tnd have not sought to discuss the question of 
priority in whatever inventions animated photography may rely upon. 

m.— ANIMATED PHOTOGKAPHY IN PEACTICE. 

From the foregoing exposition of the general principles involved, the 
reader will, doubtless, easily perceive how they are applied in practice. It 
all comes to this, that a strip of sensitised celluloid film, varying in 
length as may be desired from sixty feet to hundreds of feet, and per- 
forated at its edges, is wound down in the focus of the view lens, 
behind which it is held in register for a fraction of a second. The quicker 
the exposure is being made, the shorter the rest ; but, assuming twenty 
pictures a second to be taken, then the pause will equal one-fortieth of a 
second. A rapidly moving shutter acts between the lens and the film, 
which is obviously obscured for a fraction of a second, during which it 
moves on, and another portion of the film has arrived in position on the 
focal plane. 

In projecting the positives on to the screen exactly the eame 
principles prevail. Each little picture is given a momentary pause 
behind the projecting lens, and the light is temporarily, although not 
appreciably, obscured by the shutter. 

The Edison standard gauge film measures about Ij^ in. wide, the 
actual dimensions of the image being about 1^ inch by fths of an inch, 
the perforations numbering four on each side of the picture ; the 
Lumi^re film has the same measurei^ents, but has only two perforations, 
one on each side. Some specially made cameras for taking animated 
photographs admit of films measuring as much as 3^ in. wide being used, 
But the advantages of large pictures are not, it may be supposed, uni- 
versally admitted. 

The operation of taking the photographs after a little practice is an

extremely simple matter. The camera is set apon a stand, which 
cannot be too rigid, and, the view or scene having previously been 
focussed, the exposure is made by winding off the film behind the 
lens, the rapidity of movement being, of course, governed in the same 
manner as with ordinary instantaneous photography — that is to say, the 
factors of lens aperture, speed of emulsion, and rapidity of shutter, are 
of equal value in the one kind of photography as in the other. The 
quicker the objects move, the shorter the exposure. It is well to bear in 
mind that, theoretically at any rate, in this class of work there is a gain 
in respect of depth of definition, i.e. the short focal length of Mnemato- 
graphio lenses clearly having an advantage over longer-focus lenses used 
in ordinary work. It must also be borne in mind that, as most GinematO' 
graph apparatus is worked by hand, the rapidity of the exposure may 
be differentiated at will, so that the operator can adapt his exposures to 
the speed with which the objects in the field of view are moving. 

I insert this elementary outline of the method by which animated 
photographs are taken in order that those readers who are not interested 
in the theoretical and historical parts of my subject may better under- 
stand the way in which the apparatus, described in the next chapter, is 
manipulated. 

IV.— VARIOUS FOBMS OF APPARATUS FOR ANIMATED 
PHOTOGRAPHY. 

During the last two years the number of machines for taking and 
projecting animated photographs, that have been devised in England 
alone, numbers considerably over a hundred, and many others are 
imminent. Not only would it be out of place on my part to institute 
comparison between any of these machines, but it is also clear that to 
attempt a description of an appreciable number of them would be a some- 
what heavy and monotonous task,. As typical, however, of some of the 
varieties of mechanical means employed in the construction of apparatus 
designed for animated photography, I append brief descriptions of 
Messrs, Lumi^re's, Mr. Acres', and Mr, Demeny's systems. These have 
come under my own observation, and for that reason are perhaps fittingly 
selected for mention.

The band of film follows the same path, whether it be a sensitive 
band for making a negative or a positive band used for projection ; in the 
latter case the back of the apparatus is removed, and a strong beam of 
light is thrown upon the band. 

Only one description is, therefore, necessary to make both functions 
of the apparatus understood, either for photographing or projecting.
