    Does anyone know what camp glasses are?

    I have to translate a shop sign which says: "Purveyors of camp, racecourse, opera, and perspective glasses."

    Thanks in advance!

    And have a nice weekend!

    This wording is archaic. It would be helpful if you were to provide context - for example, a Google search for the exact phrase suggests that it comes from a book - so how about quoting the source as required by the forum rules?

    Yes, it comes from a book that I am translating. It´s nineteenth century romance settled in London. If that helps finding an answer to my question I am glad to provide the information: Lisa Kleypas, Married by Morning, p. 223.

    Any idea what camp glasses are? (There is no more context to this.)

    By context we means the complete sentence where this occurs and sentences either side of the sentence containing "camp glasses".
    There may be 4 sentences in all... Forum-rules


    Please provide us with that.... that is the context we mean: and need.
