Catalogue of magic lantern slides
Theobald & Co., England.
Part 2.

Directions for use:

The series of mainly 12-slide sets have been produced in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and seems to have been sold under a number of different trade names, with many retailers applying their own series name. That's why the slides come upon in a lot of different cardboard boxes.
It is also not sure that Theobald is the manufacturer of all the slide sets mentioned below, or that he is only one of the retailers.

The titles below are marked as follows:
TCAT1890 # 00 --- The set occurs in the 1890 Theobald & Co. Catalogue.
ABTS # 00 --- The set is known as All Brithish T Series.
TTSS # 00 --- The set is known as a part of Theobald Transfer Slide Sets.
LGSCAT --- Sets that appear in the Lancaster Catalogue as Lancaster's Graphochrome Slides (without serial number).
All mentioning the serial number, if known.

If the set is available on this site one of the slides is shown. Click the hyperlink to go to the complete set.
