Catalogue of Photographic Apparatus, Rochester Optical Co., (Rochester, NY), May 1897, ~6"x9", 80pp

The view cameras were at their zenith at about 1895, but R.O.C. still carries their full line of English-style cameras (Carleton, Universal, Monitor, Kenwood) in 1897. The Premo line is still enlarging, and Premos are given quite a few pages here, despite the fact that, as early as 1897, R.O.C. published another catalog, The Premo Camera, devoted to the Premo line.  At least the engravings here are sharp hand-cut ones, rather than the short-lived half-tone experiment in the 1896 catalog.
