This is the introductory catalogue for the ingenious camera that was capable of producing direct color photographs (Hichrography) from three negatives simultaneously exposed, as well as conventional b&w. The camera, available in 3 sizes (another was introduced three months later) is pictured and priced. This process was awarded the first United States patent in color photography. The laid-in price list also includes plate holders, film, paper and chemicals.
