“Die Soldaten des Führers im Feld”, Rare Album / Book with Stereoscope (Viewer) and 75 viewing Photo Cards; Several Approx. 5 X 7 Photos (Pasted in), and Approx. 75 Stereographic Sheets for Use in the Viewer. Size Approx. 8” X  11.75”. This book, titled “Die Soldaten des Führers im Feld” is somewhat worse for wear – but the important parts are fully functional! The cover is lightly discolored but in good shape otherwise. The cover panels have hollowed out slots on the inner surface, for holding stacks of stereographic photo strips (each of which shows the same photo side by side). When a strip is inserted into the collapsible metal stereoscope (also called a “stereopticon”) frame and you look through the lens (and cross your eyes a little), you get a stereoscopic view that has an uncanny 3D depth (you feel like you are standing right there – truly an incredible sensation!). These album / books include 100 stereographic strips in four stacks of 25 each (the rear cover holds three sets in wells, the front cover one set plus the expandable viewer). There is only one of the 100 original that is missing. There are a number of crystal clear photos of notable political and military personalities pasted directly onto the pages, and a few campaign maps also pasted in (the text and maps are all of the Polish campaign – as are all of the stereographs). A fascinating item! (U, HC)
