Carl Zeiss 1856 autograph letter signed, dated 21 March 1856 from Pesth, Hungary. Zeiss founded the famed optical ''Carl Zeiss AG'' lens, which had a wider aperture range allowing for brighter light and wider views. Eventually, his lenses made their way around the world and particularly, into the business of camera lenses. Signed boldly, ''Carl Zeiss'', document is written in 19th century German script. Document may relate to the lens, as they became prevalent in the 1840's, and has an additional note at lower right corner. Verso has postmark and is addressed to Masso & Manno in Pesth. Letter on one page with card-style fly leaf measures 8.5'' x 10.5''. Very minor toning and foxing, else near fine.
