A remarkable addition to the canon of Civil War literature, Civil War in Depth, Volume II, features 170 vivid images, many never previously published. Especially significant is the portfolio of rare, color images. A companion to the perennial Civil War in Depth, this all-new book includes a redesigned, easy-to-use stereoscopic viewer, which unveils each image in glorious 3-D—as it was originally taken and meant to be seen. Every Civil War aficionado will enthuse over these dramatic photographs, selected from the unparalleled private archives of Robin Stanford. They bring this epic struggle to life in a way no two-dimensional photograph ever could. At the heart of this distinguished volume are 24 vivid, full color works, wartime images that were exquisitely hand-tinted with watercolor before being sold. An entire chapter is devoted to discoveries, from the rarest Gettysburg stereograph to the lost cyclorama painting of the Second Bull Run. Additional chapters include portraits of black soldiers' experiences, of camp life, and the haunting starkness of the battlefield. Never has the war between the states been revealed with such extraordinary clarity and resonance.

About the Author:

Bob Zeller contributes to a variety of newspapers and magazines, including Civil War Times. His extensive collection of Civil War photography has been exhibited at the Southeast Museum of Photography. He lives with his family in North Carolina.

From Publishers Weekly:

These two releases build on journalist Zeller's first In Depth, which three years ago collected similar reproductions of Civil War ephemera. Since then, many more small archive holders have come forward, and the raison d'?tre of this second In Depth book of stereograms (glasses included), photos and period documents is to organize and bring them to lightAundoubtedly with the huge Civil War-buff market in mind. Houstonian Jean Stanford's unparalleled private collection of stereoviews makes up the core of the book, providing some wonderfully dramatic battle-aftermath shots, as well as fascinating everyday looks at telegraph operators, spies and Port Hudson, La., "the last rebel stronghold." The book is carefully and compellingly laid out, the captions inform of scene and date, but analysis is not a focus. The Collection is a stand-alone set of period reproductions, including the 1863 color "almanac" (or catalogue) of clothing manufacturer Charles Stokes & Co., a contractual "Slave Policy," a pamphlet calling bearers "TO ARMS! TO ARMS!!" money, maps, daguerreotypes, advertisements and other period objects. (All are catalogued and briefly explained in a short accompanying text by Zeller.) The quality of the reproductions is generally good, if less than crisp, and the selection of materials effectively delineates the kinds of printed matter that circulated in mid-century torrents. As the war and culture surrounding it continue to be exhaustively mined by historians and buffs, such projects are the next logical step in getting the material to people in a form as near to the originals as possible, and the closest thing (short of reenactment) to having been there.
