Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Eyeglasses, monocles, lorgnettes, sunglasses, and elaborate cases from around the world fill the pages of this elegant volume. The repertoire of fine curios includes iron-wire specs used by Austrian troops in WWI, 18th-century spectacles that curved over the head and under the wig of courtiers, and hinged-frame 15th-century horn glasses worn by early scholars. 122 full-color images.
