Excerpt from The Photo-Miniature, Vol. 1: A Magazine of Photographic Information; August, 1899
Although the stereoscope was invented at the same time that Daguerre’s discovery Of photography was an nounced, no one seemed to think Of producing stereo scopic pictures by photographic means, and for some seven years the stereoscope remained an interesting scientific toy, limited to the viewing Of geometric dia grams; for it is beyond the art Of man to produce dupli cate pictures by means of brush or pencil of sufficient accuracy to meet the requirements Of the stereoscope.
