The earliest mass-produced stereoviews in the nineteenth century were not photographic, but rather stereoscopic engravings and lithographs. Sir David Brewster introduced his lenticular stereoscope to Parisian optician Louis-Jules Duboscq in 1850, who then produced the first lenticular stereoscopes and the first printed stereoviews. This book explores the history of these early printed views..
