Description:

(7 3/4 x 5 inches). Printed in red and black. Double-page lithographed map with integral cross-section printed in brown and black after H. F. Krause, 24 photographic stereoviews, each with facing page of explanatory text, all printed on coated thin card, 1 oval photographic illustration on leaf preceding the title. Publisher's brown cloth, upper cover and spine decoratively blocked in black and titled in gilt, with a stereoscopic viewer built into the binding as a flap attached to the inside front cover (front hinge neatly repaired) One of very few American books (if not the only) illustrated with stereoviews and a built-in viewer. A lovely photographically-illustrated book of views in the White Mountains, including stereoview images of Plymouth, New Hampshire; The Flume; The Pool; The Basin; The Old Man of the Mountain; Profile Lake; Echo Lake; Beecher's Cottage; Elephant's Head and Gate of the Notch; View from the Gate of the Notch; Ripley's Falls; White Mountain Notch from Mt. Willey; Willey House; Upper Falls of the Ammonoosuc; Mt. Washington Railway and Summit; View from Mt. Washington Carriage Road; Mt. Washington from the Glen; Emerald Pool; Thompson's Cascades; Crystal Cascade; Glen Ellis Falls; North Conway, N.H.; The Cathedral; and Centre Harbor, N.H. The possibly unique feature of the present work is the combination of the stereocards with a 'mechanism' which allows the cards to be viewed: the front flap of the binding includes two lenses, and when the book is opened to any of the stereocards, and the flap is held in the correct position then "the beautiful natural effect which the Stereoscope will produce" becomes evident. The book was clearly a novelty when it was published, as the publishers felt it necessary to include instructions (with an illustration) on how to use the book.
