No. 33 Eclipse Outfit

Date Introduced: – ; Years Manufactured: c. 1888-1900
Construction: rear focus via push-pull; single or no swing; reversing by two tripod mounts; three-piece lensboard; ground glass frame hinges down
Materials: cherry body; cherry base; black leatherette bellows; brass hardware, varnish finish
Sizes Offered: 4.5×6.5
Notes: Advertisements for the No. 33, like the one above, indicate a camera essentially as shown in the photographs.  The lensboard on the photographed camera is mahogany and not original.  The original would have been the “patent vertical and horizontal shifting front”.  The photographed camera also differs from the advertisement in that it has no swing, and different placement of hardware.  Most Eclipse cameras encountered are the No. 2 or No. 3.
