Once again we have been successful in putting together a wonderful collection for our coming WestLicht Photographica Auction on May 20th, 2006. From 11.00 CET James Cornwall will auction off the 895 lots here in Vienna.
In the category Leica, there is an extensive private collection to be auctioned, all items are in exceptional condition. As far as particular rarities are concerned, we would only like to mention a Leica 250, IIId, a IIIc 'Luftwaffe' in grey paint, very early M3, black paint M3, M2, M4 cameras, MP, M4-M, M6 Electronic, M7 Titan "50 Years" with 3 lenses, rare lenses, accessories and prototypes.
Since the Nikon Historical Society Convention is taking place in Vienna at the same time, we have tried exceptionally hard to find rare Nikon items to offer. Nikon M cameras, black S2, S3, SP and two S3-M half-frame cameras, Stereo Nikkor, 100cm reflex lens for rangefinder cameras, motordrives for rangefinder cameras, Nikon F High Speed, Nikon F3 NASA and many other rare lenses and accessories will be offered in the biggest Nikon auction of all times. We are very happy to be able to welcome all the participants to the Nikon Convention in Vienna.
Leica copies (amongst which are the Hensoldt Wetzlar Publica, Canon Hansa), rare lenses (including an Old Delft collection, Macro Plasmat lenses for Leica), a Contax I collection, stereo cameras, miniature cameras, spy cameras (including the famous Photo Cravate by Bloch from 1890, Ticka with focal plane shutter, Le Photosphere in silver), film equipment (including a Kretzschmar Kinematograph in original makers box) and much, much more will set collectors' hearts of racing.
