Unlike the first reviewer, I bought this book for what it is, a resource for understanding Keystone World War One stereoviews. If you're looking for a picture book of WWI, I agree, this ain't it. The late Tex Treadwell compiled a list of over 1000 WWI stereoviews issued by Keystone View Company. No boxed set ever exceeded 400 views. The author of this book has managed to figure out which ones went with which boxed set, the year that they got included & when various views got deleted. In many instances the origin (source) of the view has been figured out. Personally, I am impressed with the author's efforts and like the book. If you collect World War One stereoviews this book is a must.
This is a collector's guide to Keystone stereo views of World War I--namely lists and information on the views available. If you actively collect this genre, this is a great guide. But if you're looking for a book of photographs (stereo or mono) of the Great War--forget it, you'll be (like me) very disappointed.
Anyone interested in Keystone Stereoscopes of WW1 this is a must have reference book. The book is print-on-demand so don't be afraid if there is only one in stock. Numerouse tables will guide you through each of the sets with enough information to help you identify missing cards for your set. I found this book very helpful and of high quality. Worthy of a 5 star.
I do a lot of purchasing on , and always read reviews. I don't know how I missed the 2 previous reviews for this book. I was looking for 3D photos of the war, I didn't realize this book was aimed at collectors and providing information regarding the series of steroviews that were issued covering war.It's my fault entirely, so I can't hold it against the book.
The author has created a collector's guide for Keystone stereoviews of the First World War. This book allows the collector to identify the year a photo was printed, and where it belongs in the set of views it originated from. For the collector, it is a great tool for determining what is a rare view, and what is a common view.
