Description

Edmund & Leon Bloch were specialists in disguised and hidden モdetectiveヤ cameras. The best known of their cameras are the Physiographe cameras disguised as monocular and binoculars. Their Photo-Cravate is a classic, with the camera hidden behind a necktie. But the rarest of their designs is also the simplest. Le Sherlock Holmes is a magazine box camera disguised as a small briefcase. The camera can be operated with the briefcase held at your side. The shutter release is below the camera, totally out of sight, and a small lever at the rear advances the plates. Very rare. only a handful of examples known worldwide, nearly all in museums. This one is in completely original condition with no restorations - ex Jim McKeown Collection
