Magic Lanterns, out of the ordinary. part 2.
  


Demonstration Magic Lantern made by or sold by Philip Harris.
Black enamelled metal body with mahogany base and front. The base plate measures 22 inches long and 8 inches wide (56 x 20 cm).

 The front swings up and the mirror at front rises to support the front condenser lens and overhead lens with right angle mirror. This permits horizontal experiments to be laid flat on top of the condenser and be projected forward.

Can also be operated as a standard magic lantern for projecting 3.25 inch square slides by mounting the wooden accessory with slide holder in front of the condenser (photo above).
There is a Philip Harris name plate on front.
Demonstration Magic Lantern.

 
 
Precision Micro-Projector
made by Flatters & Garnett Ltd, Manchester, England.

An instrument for projecting micro glass slides onto the wall.
 
Special magic lantern provided with a prism on top of the lantern.

The beam of the light source can shine straight through the front of the projector in the normal way or can be deflected by a hinged mirror, go through an adjustable focus tube, be reflected internally by a prism and then go to the screen. The latter way is probably used to project a microscopic sample that is placed on the round glass on top of the lantern. The condenser at the front is removable; I suppose one of the openings has to be covered by a kind of lid when the other lens is in use.
The mahogany lamp house is covered with asbestos. Brand: unknown, dimensions: 54 cm long, 19 cm wide, up to 60 cm long.
