Description:
This is a richly illustrated catalog by German manufacturer for optical and mechanical toys, Ernst Plank of Nuremberg. It contains a detailed engraving for almost every apparatus listed: magic lanterns, slides (some in toy format, some in lecture format), various light sources, <br /> accessories (screens, magnifying glasses). Next to lanterns, there are many cinematographic devices and early film projectors / cinematographs ('kinematographen'), often advertised to be usable both as film projector and magic lantern, as well as postcard projecting apparatus ('polyopticons'). The catalog also has list of films of early cinema that can be used, advertised that all films are 'without exception suitable for families'. The digital version was created from a reprint that did not include the original page numbers hence the unnumbered pages in the digital version. The digitized catalogue is only one section of the entire 1914 catalogue by Ernst Plank.
