Perception (Scientific American Library Series)

by Rock, Irvin

Condition: Very Good/very good

Scientific American, 1984. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. Unmarked. Unclipped dust jacket. Includes the original, uncut Stereopticon 707 taylor-merchant Stereo Picture Viewer, which aids the eyes in seeing images in 3D. This book provides a tour of the mysteries of visual perception as known toward the end of the twentieth century. The author examines the intrigues of both correct and illusory perception, the cues that enable us to construct a three-dimensional world, the nature of our perception of works of art and our perception of motion. Rock's work showed that perceptual phenomena could be explained by higher-level mental processes instead of merely by automatic processes.

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

"All the same ... it's a very important name. And I don't expect there are many bears in the world called Paddington!"

A lonely toy bear on an empty shop shelf on Christmas Eve in 1956 first captured the attention of Michael Bond, who kindly shared Paddington with the world.
