Description
CAMERA LUCIDAS Laussedat camera lucida, Paris, c 1876. Mad Laussedat camera lucida, Paris, c 1876. Made by Eduoard Lutz. The camera lucida is a small hand- held instrument used for drawing in daylight; rays of light are reflected by a prism to produce an image on a sheet of paper. The lucida is often confused with the camera obscura which operates under a completely different optical principle. It was invented by Dr William Hyde Wollaston in 1806. ©SSPL/Science Museum
