Hugo de Wijs is arguably one of the few among us whom history will record as a truly significant force in late 20th century stereography. He is notably a builder of scopes of many styles: hand-held; tabletop; floor models; every conceivable format, with every conceivable amenity. His Viewmaster viewer ($500 at Rolduc; $560 at Bellevue) is a knockout that has to be experienced to be believed. I suspect they will achieve classic status, as has his others. His scopes are simply matchless, hand-wrought, gems of beautiful mechanical ingenuity, that cost a fortune and I assume, last forever. Commentary by Marilyn Morton.
