THE FULL STORY OF HOW STEREOSCOPY BECAME A WORLD-WIDE SENSATION, REVEALED FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME AND WITH CAPTIVATING STEREOSCOPIC ILLUSTRATIONS


“This book has been in my head for so long and has involved so much research that I am thrilled it is being released at last, thanks to the efforts and dedication of Dr. Brian May and all of our team. It is a dream come true ! This publication should set a few things right about the history of the first thirty years of the medium and should put stereoscopy once more in the limelight, where it rightfully belongs.” Denis Pellerin


"STEREOSCOPY - the Dawn of 3-D" - is the book I have dreamed of publishing since we resurrected the London Stereoscopic Company in 2006.

It’s actually the most important book we have ever produced, because it chronicles the birth and first steps of what we now call 3-D – the very core of what we at the LSC proudly bring to the 21st Century. Denis Pellerin, probably the foremost Stereo Photography historian in the world right now, has made it possible, with his uniquely original research, to put the historical record straight in this book. It’s quite shocking that nobody has undertaken to tell this story in its entirety until now, and some of the revelations you will find in the book are in themselves shocking, because so many falsehoods have been perpetuated over the years about what actually happened. The rivalries which led to serial misinformation are thoroughly explored in this work, and the result is a proper and final restoration of Charles Wheatstone as the true discoverer of Stereopsis, and the true inventor of the Stereoscope, the ancestor of every 3-D and Virtual Reality device in the world today. The story begins in 1832, when Wheatstone, a true Victorian genius and polymath, discovered why creatures such as humans have two eyes instead of one, and how this enables them instantaneously to perceive their surroundings in depth – a massive evolutionary advantage. "STEREOSCOPY” for the very first time tells the full story of how this discovery became a world-wide sensation." Brian May ​

This book tells the astonishing and sometimes controversial story of the birth of STEREOSCOPY, the phenomenon we now call 3-D, which entranced Victorian society and is the great-grandparent of today’s VIRTUAL REALITY. Peering into a small, dark, magical box (a STEREOSCOPE!) an eager new audience in the 1850s was transported into another dimension. The immersive realism of 3-D beckoned to them to experience the far-flung wonders of the world without ever leaving their fireside. It was as if they were actually there amongst the Great Pyramids of Giza, or looking up at the Matterhorn, or standing in the rice fields of China. All these years later In 2021 Denis Pellerin takes new audiences on this spellbinding voyage.

Stay tuned for news on an almighty virtual event, to celebrate the release, that you will all be
invited to!
