As good as were Bob Zeller's previous 3D books, this one is a giant step forward. The anaglyph (red/green) presentation is far more accessible and John Richter's unparalleled digital restorations make these photos clearer than any Civil War images presented to the public--even including the original stereoviews issued during and after the war.

The text flows through the era and highlights not only Abraham Lincoln, but key the places and characters associated with him. The images conspire with the text to bring all these to life. Lastly, Kate Chase has never looked so beautiful as when she leaps off of page 87--her innocent, young face belying her calculating charm and political savvy.

A great book, beautifully designed and affordable, too.

This book, unlike some others like it, use "anaglyphic" photos to create the illusion of depth rather than the "stereo views" more consistent with the time period.
The result varies from mild to startling.
The book, itself, is well written and unfortunately too short. I had the distinct image of a 3 dimensional miser digging through piles of 3 dimensional money laughing all the way to a 3 dimensional bank.
Much more material could and should have been included for the price of this book.

Format: Hardcover
The reproduction in this book is excellent and the text ties the photos together in a vivid narrative. I was completely shocked to discover that all the famous photos of the President were in fact 1/2 of a vintage monochrome stereo photo - so they are all here in red-green anaglyph 3d. Utterly amazing stuff.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Frank J. Konopka TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 28, 2010
Format: Hardcover
This is a must-have books for Civil War buffs, and people interested in old photographs generally. They are astounding in their life-like portrayal of people and places from the mid-19th century. There are photos from the antebellum South through views of bodies on battlefields to various photos of Abraham Lincoln.

Of course, the chief selling point of this book is the fact that these photos are all in 3-D, a process that I was unaware was in use during that time period. They make what the viewer is seeing much more real, particularly when there are photos of corpses in various positions of death. Some of the photos actually appear to leap out of the pages right at you, which I assume was the purpose of taking them.

I could go on about how remarkable I found this book, but suffice it to say that I had seen a few of these photos before, but only in 2-D, so they appeared almost as new to me. This is a book that I can highly recommend!

Format: Hardcover
I've been collecting Civil War Photography books for quite some time now and I have to honestly say, none have made my jaw drop like Bob Zeller and John Richter's new 'Lincoln in 3D'. The images are absolutely fantastic, bringing history to life in a way both history lovers and photography lovers alike can and will appreciate. It would be a tragedy not to own a sure classic like 'Lincoln in 3D'.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am so incredibly disappointed. Received another book yesterday 'Gettysburg in 3D - A Look Back in Time' w/ a built-in stereoscopic viewer, because it is fantastic. Given that book, was so looking forward to seeing this one 'Lincoln'. But there is no comparison between the 1st books viewer, with no irritating color of the famous blue/red 3D "glasses," that are in this book. It is so difficult to see the 3D, and literally disturbs the eyes. So unfortunate because the pictures in the book would be great to see 3D. Some of them relate to other well-known ones, so I would love to see them, even just not blurred. Aside from the content of the pix in there, the write-up with each is basically the one good thing. So if you just want to read, can certainly do that, but given the pix are for 3D, reddish & bluish slits/tints create blur. They're actually better to see them elsewhere just as regular 1-dimension. Wish the viewer could be used in this book. But hope that the other book mentioned will come out w/ one specifically on Lincoln. Right now has others on Native Americans, NYC & D.C.. The author of these much better job!

I found this book in the discount section of a local bookstore for $10 and, being a Civil War buff bought it. The first time I looked at it I was disappointed. I have seen most of the photos before but not in 3D. However, the glasses block the light and even though I had a 75 watt lamp over my shoulder, it was extremely hard to see the photos clearly. It is like reading a book with dark sunglasses on. One day I was sitting on my couch in late afternoon and noticed bright sunlight coming through my western window. I got the idea of looking at the book in direct sunlight and this time I could see the images clearly. The full page and half page views were most impressive although there are several images that are only a few inches square and still hard to see detail in those. There are many photos of Lincoln in the book but also photos of other personalities of the time and many battlefield photos. The book should be called the Civil War in 3D instead of Lincoln in 3D although there are other 3D Civil War books out there. The glasses are cheap and flimsy and are not only hard to see through but awkward to use with eyeglasses like I wear.The book was worth the $10 I paid but I don't know if I would pay full retail for this.
