Man with goatee holds book open over map of Rome, while viewing stereograph in a stereoscope in a library filled with Underwood Travel System faux book slipcases for stereograph sets. The stereograph he views apparently shows St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican City, Rome. Details at the top of the image show that the room is merely a stage set.
