    Looking for Voigtländer Lens Catalogue especially for older Petzval types

    I´m searching for a Voigtländer Lens Catalogue especially for older Petzval types. Not just those with a focussing rack. There was also some older Petzval types without them. Thanks

    Good Luck !

    I havn’t been able to find one.
    If you do find one, it will look very much like this one for his colleagues in Vienna, Waibl.

    There is some information in Books, but there is so Little information engraved on lenses that you have to Measure focal lengths, diameter of glass etc. to identify the lens type. Note that combined camera/lens sale was very common. I have been able to identify my own Waibl petzval through the enclosed “price list” - after turning the old Austro-Hungarian measures into metric ones.

    I don’t think that Voigtlander had separate listing of focusing and fixed barrel Petzvals.
