Does anyone know, where I can find stereographs of William England's stereograph Number 32 - title unknown (Serie 'The Rhine and its Vicinity)?
Original would be great - scan is also welcome.

Hartmut, sorry I can't help with #32 but I thought I would share a non-stereo image from William England's Rhine series. These are about the same size as a stereo, but with a single wide image. Perhaps he used his stereo camera with a wide-angle lens?
I only have a few of these. A couple are on the original mounts. The attached image is not -- the title is "Mayence."
What's interesting to me is the strength of the compositions -- the photographs that I've seen from this series are very rigorously composed, quite sharp, and the prints have beautiful tones.

Dallmeyer's stereo cameras of the 1860s are sold as having the capacity to have the stereo lenses removed and replaced with a Triple Achromatic Lens No.1, this was a 7", f10 lens and would have produced a wide angle image.
Hello Hartmut
I see you now have a scan of no 32 on your website - Congratulations
Graham
