    Stereo Viewers and Three Boxes of Stereocards This lot features two stereoviewers and three entire boxes of stereocards. Stereoviewers were the mad craze of late 19th century. A stereoview is a twin photograph with two images mounted side by side. Each picture must have been taken from a slightly different viewpoint, approximately the distance of the space between the eyes. When looked at through the special viewer the left eye only sees the left image and the right eye, the right image, the image becomes three-dimensional. This lot includes three boxes of these specially made cards. The images on the cards range from views of European and American cities, to scenes of war and wounded soldiers. The boxes are a treasure trove of images. A truly exceptional lot that is just waiting to be fully explored!

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
