Éditions Artistiques Stéréoscopiques was a publisher and seller of stereoviews from Paris. Little is known about the company. An undated catalog shows the location Avenue de Saint-Ouen 44, an invoice from 1929 lists the address Rue Louis Besquel 4.
The company sold stereoviews of war scenes in the formats 45x107mm and 6x13cm. It’s remarkable that the catalog explicitly states that it does not sell paper card stereoviews, because “glass alone gives the transparency which is essential to a realistic viewing experience”.
The stereoviews contain the abbreviation “EAS”. A wooden case with a hundred 45x107mm slides with the original invoice from 1929 contains only nine stereoviews with this abbreviation, the rest of the slides are categorised as Brentano’s. It suggests that Éditions Artistiques Stéréoscopiques was a minor publisher that expanded its collection with purchased slides from another publisher or wholesaler, possibly from Stéréo-Éditions F. Meiller.
