In his guide to Yosemite Valley that accompanied this Underwood & Underwood set of stereoscopic views, Turner claimed that one could, "by the use of the stereographs of the park and the special map accompanying this booklet, although never having visited the park, obtain an experience so vivid as to be similar in all essential respects to that by a person actually present." Images are fine; no silvering. The booklet and the map inserted in it are in fine condition too. The cloth box is worn. Sets of these stereos with the booklet are very scarce. (#172965).
