George Eastman receives a patent for his camera...
Item # 656333
September 22, 1888
SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN, New York, Sept. 22, 1888 Although quite significant for any collector of vintage cameras, one of the back page has the "Index of Inventions" showing over 100 which have recently been awarded, one being: "Camera, G. Eastman....388,850". This was for his first roll film not requiring support.
Various illustrations of recent invention of the day, many quite curious. Sixteen pages, nice condition.
