    Dave, I don't have an answer for you but this link may help. You may have already seen it...

    http://www.cameraeccentric.com/html/...t/process.html

    It is a copy of a Wollensak process lens catalog.

    Hope it helps,

    thanks John,
    the chart shows 19 inch and 25 inch with the 19 covering 14 x 17 full plate, but i am supposing that means at 1:1 since this is a process lens?

    Dave, I got one some time ago and can't recall if it says it's a Velostigmat or not. But I wrote about it here. Shine a pin lamp into that bad boy when you get it. If you see 2 brights and 3 dims per group, it's the protar type. I know they changed to dialyts fairly early on though. If it is the protar type it'll cover that bad old 14X17 with movements. And have very nice contrast to boot.
