    I purchased this camera some 30 years ago. I saw it in one of the Civil War antique shops in Gettysburg, PA soon after I finished photography school. I fell in love with it. The engraving on the lens says: JH Dallmeyerl London 3.A. N 63962 June 11th Patent (US) 1867. It is in very good condition. Any further information from you, will be of great help.

      The camera and stand look to be made by E. & H.T. Anthony. The camera looks very much like a "N.Y. Imperial Camera" sitting on a matching "New York Camera Stand."

      What does the label say at the top and what is the size of the ground glass? If this is an Anthony outfit, it dates from the mid-1880s to the late 1890s.

      Thank you all,
      the ground glass size is 8x10. so is the film holder.

      Okay ... your camera is the 11x14 inch model with an 8x10 attachment (standard with the camera). Price in 1888 was $80 without lens. The stand for this camera would be the No.1 model. It sold for $16.50 in 1896. The later 1896 version of this camera is different, so you have the earlier model.

      Lens is a Dallmeyer Patent Portrait # 3A from about 1902. F/4 speed. Petzval design (with Dallmeyer tweak) and featuring a diffusion feature.
