Invented around 1850, stereoscopy is a process in which the illusion of three-dimensional depth is created in images by viewing them through a binocular apparatus. As an early tourist destination, Switzerland offered a wide array of popular motifs for stereo imaging. In this way, Swiss landscapes and landmarks reached an international audience with breath-taking vividness. This book presents the unique stereoscopic image collection of Donald G. Tritt, which today forms part of the collection of the Swiss National Museum. It even includes stereo glasses, enabling you to marvel at since melted glaciers, vanished sights, and long deceased women in traditional Swiss costume.
