Taxiphote by Jules Richard - Black & White Photography and Stereoscopy Blog

Taxiphote was the name of a series of multiple view stereoscopes based on slide trays. The device was developed by Jules Richard and the first patent dates from 1900. The first models were just called Stéréo Classeur, but soon the name Taxiphote was introduced. It was the most sophisticated stereoscope of its time.

ICA Stereospekt 45x107 - Black & White Photography and Stereoscopy Blog

I much appreciate German photo gear. I'm photographing with Zeiss optics for many years now and since two years I shoot my photo projects with a Leica Monochrom. Although this blog is mainly about French stereoscopy, I couldn't resist the temptation to add a German stereoscope to my collection.

Mattey Stereoscope

Last month I've acquired my second table stereoscope. It's a beautiful late 19th century deluxe rotary viewer, built by the French manufacturer Mattey. This multiple-view device supports paper and glass stereo views in both 45x107 and 6x13 formats.
