1200MM 47 Inch lens!
I have acquired a Hermagis Aplanatique that is 1200mm or 47 inch focal length. Other than turning my living room into a camera obscura, what format would this cover, if they even made film larger than 20x24? I'm roughly guessing it would cover 40x40?
An Aplanat is basically a Rapid Rectilinear, if that is what this lens is it would cover like most any R-R. NICE find! I'm envious!

I'm just glad to OP was inclusive enough to include both measurements in his title. Don't want to confuse us Americans.
Well, he is wrong. It's 47.2441 inches.

I can't imagine how big a 47" would be, can you lift it?
If the view outside your living room gets boring, you could always make one of these
I'm still holding out for the Noct Asph f/1.0 version with m4/3 adapter, single coated for my hdr infra red portraits of black cats in coal cellars.
I don't think I'll rent it, but I may sell it outright one day. It would fit on a 9" board.
A couple pics, I dispensed with the usual 35mm film roll, here's a 13" Vitax for scale:
