Though it may come as a surprise to both cinema lovers and industry professionals who believe that 3-D film was born in the early 1950s, stereoscopic cinema actually began in 1838, more than 100 years before the 3-D boom in Hollywood was created by the release of Arch Oboler's African adventure film, ""Bwana Devil"", filmed in ""Natural Vision"" 3-D. ""Stereoscopic Cinema and the Origins of 3-D Film, 1838-1952"" is a comprehensive prehistory of the stereoscopic motion picture. Writing a new chapter in the history of early cinema, Ray Zone not only discusses technological innovation and its cultural context but also examines the aesthetic aspects of stereoscopic cinema in its first century of production.
