Gennert Rapid Rectilinear Lens, c.1890's


 

Descriptive Catalogue of Photographic Apparatus and Supplies, G. Gennert (New York, NY), c. 1893, p. 8


 


Notes:  G. Gennert, even in its early years, bought lenses from lens specialty companies.  Sometimes they sold them with the original maker's engraving, but also bought blank lenses (or just the glass), and engraved the barrel with Gennert (or installed them in barrels).  Since many makers manufactured rapid rectilinear type lenses, it is not known who made this one.
