Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
I am trying to find some information and a very special stereoscope called the Clairvoyant and enclosed in a box named the Swan's Stereoscopic Treasury. Any help is welcome. Thank you

The viewer is described and illustrated on pp33-34 of Paul Wing's definitive history, Stereoscopes, The First One Hundred Years. If you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I can send you a scan.
Wing mentions that it is Patent #2644, November 20, 1858, which you may find helpful.
Dick Weindling has done some research on Alfred W Bennett which may be of interest. His resferences are attached.

The address of A W Bennett - 5 Bishopsgate Without - is the same address as on Swan's 1858 patent for the stereoscope.
From North & South Shields Gazette and Northumberland and Durham Advertiser - Thursday 22 September 1859
