- The Great War Through Keystone Stereographs
Ever wonder why Keystone produced all these different World War
stereo cards and what they're really worth? Now for the first time
there is a comprehensive book providing title lists for all major
sets, Keystone's links to other manufacturers, and a means of
accurately evaluating the value of every Keystone World War
stereoview. Each set from 1915 to the culminating 1932 Set of 400
is fully described, showing variations and how it developed from
the previous set. Over 120 pictures are included. There is a
complete title list for each of the seven principal sets, as well
as a list by card number showing what sets each one appeared in.
The book is a valuable supplement to this web site. It will enable
anyone to date Keystone stereographs and to separate the common
WWI sets and stereo cards from the scarce ones. Written by our own
Bob Boyd, this book is THE indispensable reference for anyone
collecting Keystone WWI stereoscopic cards.
