North Melbourne Australian Scholarly Publishing 2017 1925588173 / 9781925588170 1st Edition Softcover 
Oblong Small Quarto Size [approx 27cm x 20cm]. MINT - a NEW copy. Glossy card covers. Illustrated with Colour and Black & White Photographs and Plates. 192 pages This book brings to life the story of the magic lantern in colonial Australia and New Zealand. It describes the extraordinarily wide use of magic lantern images and technology across the colonies. The medium's repertoire was practically without limits: images were as likely to be culled from the canon of western high art as from a medical textbook or popular sentimental ballads and moral tales, and they ranged in aim from family amusement to serious instruction, religious evangelism and political and commercial promotion. Lantern images were enjoyed by the social and cultural elite and middle and lower socio-economic audiences alike, in cities, country towns and hamlets. ID294252
