Description from the London Stereoscopic Company :::::::::

This book tells the astonishing and sometimes controversial story of the birth of STEREOSCOPY, the phenomenon we now call 3-D, which entranced Victorian society and is the great-grandparent of today’s VIRTUAL REALITY. Peering into a small, dark, magical box (a STEREOSCOPE!) an eager new audience in the 1850s was transported into another dimension. The immersive realism of 3-D beckoned to them to experience the far-flung wonders of the world without ever leaving their fireside. It was as if they were actually there amongst the Great Pyramids of Giza, or looking up at the Matterhorn, or standing in the rice fields of China. 



Unique, one-of-a-kind artist work. Materials will vary by eachh artist and creation. See description for detail.


Due to the slip case packaging of both book & viewer as well as the weight (4lbs!)- we have set a priority mail medium flat rate box shipping of $17.00. This ensures rapid, properly handled delivery.
