dc.description.abstractHere are beautiful magic lantern slides, 3¼" square, with a circular scene within a square frame. Most retain the two paper slips proclaiming "Fables of La Fontaine: Doré" and "By permission Cassell, Petter, and Galpin." Though the pictures do not scan well, they are very well done. I offer several here merely as samples; they do not do Doré justice! The slides themselves are in various states of poor repair. In many, the two glass plates have separated. In some the framing paper -- square on the outside, circular on the inside -- has become fragmentary. Two slides have cracked. What a wonderful ephemeral find! Click on any image to see it enlarged. Lifted together, these slides are also exceedingly heavy!en_US
