Catalogue of Photographic Apparatus, Rochester Optical Co., (Rochester, NY), May 1896, ~6"x9", 72pp

Alas, this catalog contains half-tone images, which, while probably more accurate (being renditions of photographs of actual cameras), have a fuzzy quality to them.  The hand engravings they replace were much sharper: contrast the two images on pages 34 and 35.  By 1898, the engravings are back to the nice hand-cut versions.  The Midget Camera no longer mentions an ability to be turned into a detective camera by placing it inside a leather-covered box.  The view camera in a leather-covered box is now represented by a new Premo model, the Long Focus Premo, p. 29.  The first appearance of the Pony Premo.
