Antiquariana: Old England in 3-D

When I worked for a rare photography collector, I came to know a few images by the stereoscopist and chronicler/artificer of 19th-century British village life, T.R. Williams, while flipping through the Encyclopedia of 19th Century Photography. But the Encyclopedia tends not to mention things like the fact that one of the foremost aficionados of Williams' stereoscopic views is Brian May, guitarist for Queen. Apparently May has just published a book about Williams and his elaborately constructed three-dimensional idylls. New York Times article here.
