Book Description

Like a long-forgotten photo album discovered in Grandma’s attic, these books open up to display a lost world come to life through 3-D photography. Each book will include a brief, colorful history of stereoscope photography, which started in the 1850s offering people their first photographic views of the world. This was the television or internet of the time, and millions of viewers and photos were sold by traveling door-to-door salesmen. 45 images will be reproduced, along with their reverse side including a detailed historical caption on the subject.

Prepare to Be Amazed!

Fascinating Incidents of Minnesota Revealed

Take a 3D Photographic Journey into History

 

Like a long-lost album chock full of rare vintage photographs, this unique book with built-in viewer brings the past to life again—in 3D.

            Here’s a view of the state we love from the 1860s through the 1930s: Pioneer life and Native Americans, early views of our towns and cities, famed landmarks, railroads and sailing ships, the arrival of the automobile, the glorious Ice Palace, and so much more.

            These three-dimensional photographs make you feel as if you are actually there!

 

How to use this album: To see the stereo image, look through the built-in viewer and simply let your eyes relax, looking above or below the images. Then, slowly move your eyes to the center of the images, and the two images will reappear like magic in 3D.

Format: Hardcover
All of the books in this series are great. As a stereocard maker and enthusiast, I was excited about the release of these books.
Good points: Excellent price! Excellent construction with the fold out viewer in the cover and excellent graphics giving it an 'antique' feel. Some very rare views are presented that would cost a fortune to purchase. The descriptions originally printed on the card's verso are reproduced here on the preceding page to each image so that they can be viewed and read all at once... And, did I mention the excellent price?
Weak points: Some cards which already suffered from poor image quality are made 'grainy' by the halftone printing. A few of the images are not in 3D. A few images have the left and right images reversed. While the original cards may have been this way, the least they could have done was correct them or note the error in the descriptions.
Still, these few and minor weaknesses do not detract from the overall quality of the books. Nothing can really describe seeing historical moments and people in 3D.These books should be in classrooms. I look forward to the next 2 releases in the series.

I really love this book. The viewer is built into the front cover, so you hold that up while you turn the pages. You have to relax your eyes and then all of a sudden they kick in and you are seeing wonderful 3D images of the past. I went through the whole book right away but I know it is one that I will be getting out every so often to see the pictures again. I also have the other 5 of these books and have enjoyed all of them. I highly recommend this book if you want to see wonderful 3D images.

A fine entry in an excellent series of stereo view collections. A revealing look into scenes of the old Midwest.
