Notes: 

In 1885 this lens model was called Anthony's Rapid Dry Plate Lens.  By 1887, it was called the E.A. Rapid Hemispherical Lens.  It is a rapid rectilinear type lens in a brass barrel with a push-pull focus.  The stops slip into a slot and are held in place by pushing the inner lens until the outer lens covers the stop slot.  It appears to be identical to the Darlot Rapid Hemispherical Lens, and undoubtedly Darlot was the source of the lenses.
