Cabossel et Hude Minerva

Traduction de DC.

In 1930, further to twenty five years of activity, the French manufacturer Cabossel et Hude launched “La Minerva” on the market.
This nicely finished folding camera for 9x12 cm plates is fitted with a wooden body and a metal bed both covered with a fine Havana brown leather .
The camera offers a double extension bellow, a U shaped lens standard with rise, fall and shift capability.
An advertisement dated 1930 indicated that the Minerva and other folding cameras of the same manufacturer (e.g. Pygma, Imperia, Dyna) could be proposed fitted with lenses sourced from various manufacturers as Berthiot, Boyer, Hermagis, Krauss, Roussel or Stella.
The camera is fitted with f:6.3 Tessar made under license by Krauss and with an AGC IBSO shutter.
The access to the ground glass is possible by opening a leather protection shaped as a window.
At a first approach, the fact that this camera is belonging to the Cabossel et Hude manufacturing range is not obvious. A small and round metal label plate riveted on the inner wall of the bed shows a star, the two initials C and H as well as the name “La Minerva” engraved.
A variation of “La Minerva” is depicted here and shows many interesting differences.
