The Stereoscope and Stereoscopic Photography, History of 3D


THIS BOOK IS THE SECOND in a series of facsimile editions of historical 3-D works published by David Starkman and Susan Pinsky of Reel 3-D Enterprises; it follows Brown's Stereoscopic Phenomena of Light and Sight (1903), which they published in 1994. The Stereoscope and Stereoscopic Photography was written in 1894 by F. Drouin of France and first published in French. Matthew Surface (then editor of The Practical Photographer) translated it into English that same year for publication in England. 

Little is known about F. Drouin himself, but the high quality of his work leads us to believe he was very skilled and knowledgeable in photography in general and the 3-D techniques and equipment of his day. This book focuses mainly on the stereoscopes of that era. Drouin thoroughly describes and illustrates just about all types that were in use at that time, as well as a number of advanced concepts in stereo photography and viewing that became practical and feasible only long afterwards with the development of new technologies. The author also discusses all types of stereo photography methods (e.g., single camera, twin camera, twin-lens camera, slide bar, etc.), as well as a brief section on bin-ocular vision and the perception of relief. David and Susan are to be commended for the superb reproduction quality of this facsimile edition of a fascinating book and thanked for their on-going efforts to provide 3-D enthusiasts with copies of these excellent historical works, in which much of the information is just as valid and useful today as it was over 100 years ago.
