Richard Jules Glyphoscope (bakelite)

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand.

Jules Richard is good known beyond our borders for his Verascope which were manufactured during nearly sixty years. He is it also for very rare Homéos of years 1910, but one him must have also put stereo at the range of the amateur thanks to Glyphoscope.

This small camera allowed since 1905, to take stereo photographs 45 X 107 mm and 6 X 13 cm.

What is subtle, it is that the metal part before is removed very easily, and that the ebonite body is transformed then into stereo viewer, after having withdrawn the dorsal panel.

The Photo-Plait Catalog teaches us that Glyphoscope was always done in 1940. Several models coexisted then :

  • with the format 45 X 107 mm: made of ivorine (213 francs ), sheathed wood (228 francs )
  • with the format 45 X 107 mm with variable speeds (1/10, 1/20, 1/50 and 1/100 secondes): made of ivorine (273 francs ), sheathed wood (288 francs )
  • with the format 6 X 13 cm, with 6 frames: made of sheathed wood (308 francs )
  • with the format 6 X 13 cm with variable speeds, 6 frames: (364 francs )
