The Instantograph is a quarter-plate view camera, first introduced in 1887 and produced until 1910, although it underwent several evolutions in that time. I think my example dates from about 1897. It takes glass plates in the quarter plate format, although you can use sheet film or photographic paper too.
I’ve written some notes about the camera, and some notes about how to handle film & paper for it.
