Fairy Camera

Date Introduced: 1884 ; Years Manufactured: 1884-1898
Construction: rear focus via rack and pinion (single gear track between base rails); single or double swing; reversing by rotating bellows & back; three-piece lensboard
Materials: mahogany body; cherry base; black fabric bellows; nickeled hardware
Sizes Offered: 4.25×6.5; 5×8 w/o stereo; 5×8 stereo; 6.5×8.5; 8×10 (illustrated)
Notes: Essentially a Novelette but with rack and pinion focusing instead of the normal push-pull.  According to the catalogs, it was to come with  a leather case for camera, and another for five plateholders, although the illustrated camera obviously has an original Anthony-style wooden case which holds the camera and one plateholder. The rounded variation of the front standard (as above) could accommodate stereo lenses.  The non-stereo version of the front standard is not as wide and is also square.
