SERIES COMIQUES TOL-SIM

and other transparencies.

 

These sets of transparent images on cellophane were made in France. Each set consisted of a series of six images and the accompanying booklets with readings, sometimes accompanied by an image holder, made of two glass plates of c. 8 x 9 cm, hinging joined by a piece of linen adhesive tape.

The transparent images could be placed between the two glass plates, and thus entirely shifted into the slide holder of a magic lantern to be projected, or simply held up to the light in the hand.

The 'Séries Comiques' consists of 21 series of six images each, describing a comical story. Sold for '1 fr. 50 la Série de 6 Vues'. Some other series are 'La Jalousie d'un frère', 'La Maison de Jéhovah', 'Famille modèlle', and 'L'histoire de France en mille tableaux'. Last series was 120 fr. in black and white and 180 fr. in colour. It was also possible to subscribe to the series for 5 fr. monthly.
The brand name Tol-Sim is a compound word from the names of the publishers, Tolra and Simonet. The transparent cellophane images were published from 1895 - 1903.
