John Henry Dallmeyer (London, England)

Dallmeyer's Wide-angle Rectilinear Lens,  1866-c.1910's


Illustrated Catalogue Issued Annually by Thos. H. McCollin, Thos. H. McCollin (Philadelphia, PA), January 1, 1876, pp. 21-22


Notes: 

As part of the Dallmeyer's offering of rapid rectilinear lenses are these wide-angle versions, probably offered nearly, if not at the same time as the original Rapid Rectilinear Lens.

The engraving shown for Morrison's Wide Angle Lens Variation 2 in Scovill catalogs is the exact same engraving shown for Dallmeyer's Wide Angle Rectilinear Lens in Anthony catalogs.  Since Dallmeyer existed prior to Morrison, this probably means that Morrison was importing unmarked lenses from Dallmeyer and adding his own marks.
