I don’t suppose many camera manufacturers make gift sets anymore and in my experience most digital cameras come in sturdy but utilitarian boxes which have to be pulled apart to get at the kit inside.  So this Kodak ‘camera outfit’ is very much of its time (circa 1965).  You could buy the camera (designed by a famous industrial designer) , flash gun, bulbs, film and battery as separate items, but here everything is nicely boxed up to provide an ideal starter kit.  And someone has really treasured it. Fifty years on the box is pristine, the contents complete and in great shape, even though the camera has clearly had some use.
