Through these rare and extraordinary images, never before published, we are given a private glimpse of the Victorian world as it appeared to those who lived in it. The magic lantern was invented in the seventeenth century and went on to become, by Victorian times, a highly sophisticated machine which entranced large audiences with its stunning array of images.

These images capture everyday life in the street, at work, at play, even in the slums of Victorian Britain. Illustrated with 200 black and white and a superb collection of hand-coloured slides, this book illuminates a lost world, as well as constituting, the magic lantern has lain dormant for almost a century.
