Elmendorf, Dwight Lathrop

New York: E & H.T. Anthony, 1900. Slim octavo in buff colored cloth lettered in red; 69 pp. plus 8 pp. of illustrated ads for the publisher's lantern slide equipment. Illustrated with photographs, sample slides and engravings. A tight example with the covers soiled and a crinkled tear to page 39/40. Scarce work on the making and colorizing of glass lantern projection slides, a means widely used during the late 1800 and early 1900s for recreation at home, education in schools, advertising and news announcements in theatres.
