    What do you need from a 1910 European Catalogue?

    In my quest for more data about the Plasticca I have gotten hold of an extensive catalogue (Swedish) for the year 1910-1911. Apart from the usual chemicals and darkroom equipment, there are a lot of German objectives on display. All figures seem to be supplied by the makers. There is no index unfortunately. I have included a few sample pages showing the combination data for the Meteor sets which I know are quite common and where the insert table has often been lost. I am willing to take pictures and post IF YOU HAVE NO OTHER SOURCE!

    Here is a basic list of those that might have interest:

    Meteor Casket
    Rodenstock Bistigmat (also as a casket),Hemi-Anastigmat, Heliogonal, Eurynar (the dialyt version)
    Emil Busch:Aplanat series D, wideangle Series C, Detective Aplanat, Portrait Aplanat (f6) and Petzval Portrait (f3.5 - 4).
    Schulze & Billerbeck: Euryplan series V, Va, II
    C.P.Goerz: X section of series X, Hypergon. Lynkeioskop C, E and F. Rapid Paraplanat and Chloroscope (no drawing).
    Voigtländer: I think these are covered well elsewhere - but there are nice half X sections of the portrait Euroskop, Teleobjective and the Triple anastigmat (Cooke H.D.Taylor's patent).

    Check cameraeccentric first!

    Steven,

    I just acquired a Goerz Rapid Paraplanat - CameraEccentric doesn't have a Goerz catalog going back far enough. Do you have any information on that series?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    I dont read German, but first series from 1888 and about f/8 in speed. See below for layout and coverage.. This lens utilized the "new' at that time, Jena Glass.

    Yes I do!
    This must be the rapid paraplanat F 7.5 Angle is approximately 80 deg.
    Sold in 3 sizes in 1910 (in Sweden).

    I think the photo is self explanatory ( coverage to the left is with large stops, to the right, small stops).
    I enclose the Choroskop which is on the same page!

    Steven, if you ever stumble across information (even just an advertisement) on the very earliest versions of the Schneider Symmar I would be interested to see it. These predate the f6.8 Doppel Anastigmat Symmar and came in a variety of sizes and apertures - f4.5, f4.8, f5, f6.3, f6.5, f7.7 and probably others. They were probably made to order as mostly they show up as batches of 1 or 2 lenses. Production basically finished in March 1920 although there were a few more one-off orders as late as 1925.

    All of that was gleaned from Hartmut Thiele's production list books, but I know nothing about the actual lenses themselves. Extrapolating from that list (which starts in 1918) there were probably fewer than 1000 of the early lenses made in all focal lengths. I've yet to check the BJP for those years, but I don't expect to find too much information about a new German company during the 1914-1918 period.

    Steven,
    I'd be interested in your Hemi-Anastigmat data. I've not found anything about this lens of mine other than Ole Tjugen also has/had one, but of a longer focal length. I don't recall the serial, but I do recall seeing a serial list, and that my mine predates 1910 for date of manufacture.
    Thanks.
    Chris
