Published by London Lieut. Cheyne 1860, 1860
Condition: good to very good. Nine of a set of fourteen albumen stereoviews showing the returned Franklin artifacts. Each view is 17.5 X 8.5 cm and consists of two images mounted on a plain yellow coated card. The images are in good to very good condition. They are a bit toned, but are generally very clear. A few images have a mild crease in the middle that does not affect the image. General soiling on the edges, heavier on a few. Rare. Cheyne privately produced this set and sold it in a small box complete with a descriptive booklet, of which a photocopy of the booklet is included with the views. Our set is missing the following views: No. 6 Found in the Boat; No. 8 Found in the Boat; No. 12 the Record; No. 13 the Fox; and finally Captain M'Clintock's Portrait. The stereo effect is quite striking on many of the views. Included with this item is a 19th century viewer.
