Le Postillon de Lonjumeau.
Five magic lantern slides with the story of the comic opera in three acts 'Le Postillon De Longjumeau', written in Paris in 1836 by Adolphe Adam after a libretto by Adolphe Leuven and Leon-Levy Brunswick.

Unfortunately, the first slide, number 1, is missing from this series.

Polichinelle

Polichinelle originated in the seventeenth century from Pulcinella, which was brought to France by Italian comedians. Polichinelle's costume is multicoloured and French elegant. His head is decorated with a triangular stitch. He has a protruding chin and hooked nose, a high hump and a huge belly. Polichinelle was not only a comic figure on the stage - often in the company of Arlequin and Pierrot - he was also the main character of French puppet theatre.
The series consists of 12 elongated lantern slides, each with two scenes with accompanying text in French.
