the price had more than doubled. Size of the slides: 8,2 x 8,2 cm (3 1/4" x 3 1/4").

A lot of Junior Lecturers' Series were published in Germany by Hüttig A.G. Dresden as 'Hüttig's Laternbilder'.
Richard Hüttig & Sohn was established in 1887. Later, in 1897, it was incorporated as the Hüttig AG. Due to the high market saturation and competitiveness, several companies (including Hüttig) were merged into ICA in 1909.
