E.I. Horsman Co., New York, NY
Eclipse Outfit, No.
American Annual of Photography and Photographic Times Almanac for 1888,
ads p. 26
Date Introduced: - ; Years
Manufactured: c. 1888
Construction: fixed focus?; no swing;
non-reversing, wooden box camera:
solid sides and top
Sizes Offered: 3¼x4¼
Notes: This camera appears to be
essentially a box camera. It is included amongst the Horsman view cameras
because it is named The Eclipse, as were all the Horsman cameras.
There is a 3¼x4¼" view
camera advertised as the Eclipse No. 2, and a 4¼x6½"
view camera of the same design named Eclipse No. 3.
Since the Eclipse No. 2 has the same plate size as this camera, we can conclude
that this solid-sided camera must be the
Eclipse No. 1.
