From the inventor of the Kodak camera to the founder of Universal Pictures.
Autograph inscription signed: "George Eastman", 1p, 8¾x5½, on vellum. In full: "To Carl Laemmele one of the pioneers in the great industry of motion picture photography with high respect and regard of a fellow laborer in the same field". American inventor and manufacturer George Eastman (1854-1932) revolutionized the photography industry with his inventions of flexible film (1884) and the inexpensive Kodak box camera (1888). He entered the photographic plate-making business in 1880 after inventing a machine to coat glass plates. The mass production of his dollar Brownie camera in 1900 made photography available to children. Eastman's philanthropic gifts to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Rochester (New York) and the Eastman School of Music, which he founded, exceeded $100 million. ¾-inch circular stains at blank margins, 1 just touches the descender in the "G". Fine condition.
