And we're on! Go to the booth of Acanthus for this rare, early Dutch hand-held variation of the phenekistoscope by Abraham van Embden (1794-1860), a physical, mathematical, and optical instrument maker in Amsterdam. Standing in front of a mirror, the user spins the disk while looking through the moving holes and will believe he views a moving image. The invention of the fantascope or phenakistoscope is usually credited to Joseph Plateau (1801-1883), taking the name from the Greek word phenakizein, meaning to deceive or cheat. The eye of the viewer is deceived into thinking it sees a moving image.#firstsnetherlands #rarebooks #bookfair #virtualbookfair #antiquarianbookfair #bookparty #bookloversparadise #amsterdambookfair #booklovers #bookstagram #bookcollecting #bookcollectors #bibliomania #bibliophile #bibliophilia #rarebookstagram #rarebookdealers #phenekistoscope #abrahamvanembden #optical #opticalillusion #movingimage #historyofmovingimage #19thecentury #fantascope #JosephPlateau #phenakizein #illusion #illusionism #amsterdam ...
