Very rare first edition of the report on the Lumière brother’s Photorama, for which they had taken out the French patent on December 29, 1900. They describe the photographic apparatus with which a 360-degrree photographic panorama can be taken on a single transparency, and the projector that produces a full and continuous panorama on cylindrical screens of large dimensions.
