The pinhole camera obscura was equipped with lenses and mirrors and transformed into the optical camera obscura of the early modern period. Although no single optical camera obscura has survived from the 17th century, we know from written sources and a few book illustrations that at least four principal types of this camera were developed and in use. The simplest arrangement, with a lens fastened in the pinhole, projected an inversed and reversed image on a vertical screen opposite the aperture. Hammond, The Camera Obscura: A Chronicle.

The fascinating illustrated history of the original camera, an optical viewing device once widely used but now almost forgotten. This chronicle of its long history is told through the writings of those who made or used the camera obscura for scientific or artistic purposes, and those authors who recorded its varied uses. It recalls how this versatile instrument was used for astronomical observations, as a sketching aid by travellers and amateur artists, and on a grander scale as an entertainment or tourist attraction.
