The World's Smallest BIBLE in 1941. It was special to men and women in the armed forces. It included a message from then (1941) President of the United States, Franklin D. Roosevelt: "As Commander-in-Chief I take pleasure in commending the reading of the Bible to all who serve in the armed forces of the United States. Throughout the centuries men of many faiths and diverse origins have found in the Sacred Book words of wisdom, counsel, and inspiration. It is a fountain of strength and now, as always, an aid in attaining the highest aspirations of the human soul. Very sincerely yours, Franklin D. Roosevelt." This is part of the Wonders of the Bible collection. God Bless You … Today and Every Day! AND … Remember to Love Others just as Jesus Loves YOU!

Update: I now have a web page dedicated to the micro script handwriting of Thomas Edison. It gives a bit of history on micro and nano scripture, but focuses primarily on Edison and his Lord's Prayer. You can access the page HERE (web page is McAfee secure).

We take plastics for granted in the 21st century. But, at one time, it was a never-before-seen futuristic material. If you look up the history of plastic, many sources state that modern plastic was a 20th century invention. However, its very first appearance to the public was as a mouldable resin at the 1876 Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia, USA, as shown in this right-eye view of a 19th century stereograph. Note how it lists the display as "Plastic Figurines".
1876 Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia, USA. The first official World's Fair in the United States. 37 countries were represented, and nearly 10 million people visited from around thw world. This photo is of the full, 3-D stereoview featuring one of the religious displays. It was promoting a new mouldable resin that would become today's plastic.
The Centennial Photographic Company was the exclusive 3D photographers for the Exhibition, issuing more than 4,000 stereo view cards.
