Beschreibung:

A large collection of stereoscopic photographs on glass, from Palestine and its vicinity and from Europe. [1920s-30s]. Among the photographs: · About 100 photographs from Palestine. Among them: numerous photographs from the Old City of Jerusalem and from the area of the Dead Sea and the Judean Desert (photographs of the Old City walls, streets and figures in Jerusalem, photographs of a tent camp, photograph from Ein Prat, and more), photographs from Tiberias and Migdal, and more. Some are titled and dated by hand, in Hebrew. · About 20 photographs from a trip to Damascus and other towns in the vicinity. · About 60 photographs from Italy (Venice and Florence), photographs from Czechoslovakia and Germany and photographs taken on the deck of a ship. · 90 family photographs and tens of photographs documenting a laboratory. It seems that the collection belonged to a family who emmigrated from Germany to Palestine. Possibly, the head of the family was involved in scientific research in Palestine. The photographs are placed in tin boxes. Some are titled by hand and dated (on the glass or on the boxes). Total of about 330 photographs, some are not on glass and some are on colored glass. Fair overall condition (some in poor condition). Some photographs are stained and damaged (significant dampness damages). An elaborate electric stereoscope made by "Stereoscope Magnetique Planox", France, [early 20th century]. 51X24X30 cm. Fair-good condition. The device is in working order, but slightly defected and some metal parts are rusted.
