5.0 out of 5 stars Much more than a wonderful Book!, 25 Oct 2009
This review is from: A Village Lost and Found: "Scenes in Our Village" by T. R. Williams. An Annotated Tour of the 1850s Series of Stereo Photographs (Hardcover)
This fascinating work is a very much deserved and heartfelt celebration of the 3-D masterpieces by T R Williams... but there's much more to it than this!

I preordered this book at an unbelievably low price, yet it is of the stunning highest quality... not only the pictures reproductions are wonderful and the text very inspiring, but every detail of it was carried out to perfection. I guess the authors were determined not to make it a book for an élite, but to share their passion with the vastest possible audience.

The accompanying stereoscope is a very special instrument, carefully designed, very easy to use, adjustable and versatile. And it is also a nice object to look at: I am amazed at how smart and classy a plastic-made, fully functional stereoscope can be! Its use is not to be limited to this book at all: it works perfectly to view old and new stereopictures, and also the ones you can easily take yourselves, following the simple hints in the book... it is magic! It is also very useful to view 3-D pics on a pc screen in my opinion - if you don't mind some sort of `mosquito-net' effect due to the low resolution of the screen.

In conclusion... a charming book that will certainly delight you and an outstanding stereoscope that you can't miss!
