The magic lantern was the Victorian predecessor of the slide projector. In its heyday, the 1890s, millions of glass lantern slides were produced on a very wide range of subjects, including lecture sets with high quality photographs and an accompanying script. This remarkable book reproduces an illustrated talk, published in 1880, on the River Thames from its source to the sea.
