Perhaps the most challenging device for research in the Joseph Plateau collection is the Duboscq Bioscope or albumin stereo phenakistiscope disc. Unfortunately, only one disc is preserved and no apparatus is known.

I'm most thankfull to Professor Jos Uyttenhove & Professor Maurice Dorikens (University Ghent) for permission to use these images from the world famous Joseph Plateau collection.
