This camera is a Goerz Anschuetz presscamera. It was manufacured around 1898 according to the manufacturing date I found in the camera. In one of the pictures is the shutter cloth which has the name of the shutter inventor on it. At least the earlier cameras have this text, but I'm not sure if the late models have it. In its time this camera was a very common camera among pressphotographers. It was one of the first cameras to be seriously considered for handheld photography of fast moving objects.
