The Autographic Vest Pocket camera is an early example of a folding, bellows camera. It was made by Eastman Kodak from 1913 to the early 1920's.
During the WW1 era, it was marketed as a camera suitable for soldiers due to its small size & portability, as such, it is often referred to as "The Soldiers Camera".
It is made of metal. The front pulls open to reveal the bellows. It originally used A127, autographic, roll film (no longer made). The autographic feature allowed a user to make notes on the film via a small flap on the back of the camera.
There is a small, shutter release button mounted above the lens plate whilst below the lens there is a slider offering a choice of apertures. A small, glass viewfinder sits above the lens. This can be rotated for portrait or landscape photographs.
I believe the glass in front of the shutter is missing. The bulk of the body is generally fair for its age. The bellows are in good order & light tight. The viewfinder has spots & specks but is fairly bright.
