VERY RARE Taylor, Taylor & Hobson Ltd. England Cooke Convertible Series XV Anastigmat View Camera Lens in Betax n. Very nice vintage condition with common signs of age and reasonable use.
I see no remarkable issues which might effect image quality. Some common internal dust specks and balsam bubbling on far edges of front element. Shutter fires on all settings and seem reasonably correct but not bench tested for exact accuracy. Front 26 1/2" focal length, Back 19" and 12 1/4 312mm.
