A beautiful and huge field view camera 24x30cms 10x12 in. " Frey & Co, Aarau, Switzerland". In nice used condition, complete, ground glass is ok, bellows is pretty except two pinholes as I can see (easily fixable). The wood and brass wear a beautiful patina, with some marks due to age.
For information, the Frey company still exists today but make now... With this camera, included a very rare and desirable ULF wide angle lens. This is the early Perigraphe version, before serie VIa. Estimated angle of view: circa 100°.With rotating stops, with a small pretty box. This lens covers easily 10x12in, and more with smaller stops. The glasses are clean with a slightly balsam separation on the edge of front element. I guess this lens was a gift for the photographer as it's engraved on barrel (in French): "à notre ami Mr xxx".
The lens comes in a beaitiful small box. There is also included an Universal Iris Clamp , to fit the lens on lensboard, and also all your LF lenses with diameter 18 to 75mm. Two 24x30 / 10x12 holders are included. Stand firmly behind ground glass, and lock perfectly on camera.
You could easily modify one for wet plate if you are a collodion shooter! See my other vintage lenses for sale.
