Each measuring 4" W X 3 1/4" H, this wonderful and very rarely found, complete set of TEN, 19th century, Magic Lantern Glass Slides are in excellent condition!

These vividly colored slides tell the story of "Uncle Tom's Cabin", the very controversial novel of its period that described negro life on a southern plantation, which was written and published by Harriet Beecher Stowe in 1852, prior to the onset of the US Civil War.

The slides were produced by T.H. McALLISTER, Manufacturing Optician, 49 Nassau St., New York. Each slide is labeled with manufacturer info as well as the title of that particular slide.

An extremely RARE find!
