|Magic Lantern Slides were an early form of parlour entertainment.
In the 1880's or 1890's these glass slides were created, depicting the story of Tour du monde en quatre-vingts jours (Around the World in 80 Days).
Each slide is created by first applying a black outline transfer, and then hand painting/tinting the image. Thus each set is slightly different and variations in clothing colour etc can be noted.
The sets were usually bought and stored in a cardboard box (which is missing for this set!)
The Tour de monde set consist of 6 glass slides.
