The Complete History of the Universe with Patrick Moore and Chris Lintott. Stereoscopy has been a life-long passion, and his second book, A Village Lost and Found written with Elena Vidal, introduced the genius of Victorian Stereophotographer T. R. Williams to a global audience.
Denis Pellerin, dedicated photohistorian, was a teacher for nire than 30 years and has been interested in photography since the age of 10.

He graduated as an MA in Art History at the Sorbonne in 1999 and has since been specialising in French and British Victorian genre stereoviews. He is also currently working on his PhD.

Having grown up under the controlling grip of her fame-hungry mother, Janet Slate jumps at the opportunity to move into what looks to be a great high-rise apartment in downtown Detroit. While the neighbors seem a bit strange and the building superintendent a lowlife, Janet unpacks her things and celebrates her new freedom, only to wake in the morning with a mean headache and strange bruises on her neck. Determined not to return to her Mothers' home, Janet stays in the apartment in spite of numerous chilling encounters, until one night her boyfriend Mark finds her in the middle of the street, fallen from the balcony 13 stories above.
Deemed a suicide by investigators, Lara, Janet's older sister, knows better and is determined to reveal the truth behind her baby sister's death. What Lara finds is history far more frightening and unexplainable than she had fathomed possible. As Lara struggles for answers to this growing mystery, Mark's hidden identity starts to reveal itself, and Lara is forced in to a role she never thought she would play and will never be able to escape.

A Celebrity Cruise ship model with built-in View-Master viewer sold for $112.50 with six bids. Made for Celebrity Cruises in 1999, the ship is 41" (104cm) from forcastle to stern. There was only 1,000 of these made for managers of the top producing travel agencies, and about 12 percent were destroyed in shipping. This ship does have a little wear on the hull sticker, but the plastic is in good shape and the light for the viewer does work. This ship comes complete with specially produced Celebrity Cruises commercial reel for the internally lighted viewer. The ship is mountable on a standard camera tripod with a square bracket on the bottom.
