The two hand tinted stereoscopic cards that accompany Dr. Andrews article on apoplexy are placed loosely in with the journal and have no text except for an inscription on a small overleaf that is glued by one edge onto the margin of one of the cards. The inscription reads:

"The stereoscopic representations of the brain, illustrate the case of apoplexy reported in the January number of this volume, page 359. We also present to our subscribers a photograph of Professor WILLIAM GRIESSINGER, to accompany the memoir in this number. This is from an original furnished us by Dr. Nasse, of Seigburg, Prussia. Eds. Journal."

With what looks to be hand lettering on the negative is inscribed the name and city of the photographer:   Haines, Photo. Albany, NY.

The subject of the stereoscopes is the boy's brain which was removed for photographing and clearly shows hemorrhagic effusion over the anterior portion of the two hemispheres and (in the second stereograph) congestion in the arachnoid cavity.

For an earlier example of a published medical stereoview see Spence's report of an operation for a tumor of the lower jaw.»»
