Scope and Contents:

This photographic reproduction is called a parallax panoramagram—the first three-dimensional photograph ever produced in mass quantities. It appears to have been an insert in the magazine. The subject is a bust of Thomas Edison surrounded by five of his inventions: the electric lamp, the stock sticker, the home motion picture projector, the phonograph, and the fluoroscope.
