The Encyclopaedia of the Magic Lantern is the Society's most ambitious project to date.We have attempted to provide a comprehensive reference source to the history, technology, uses and aesthetics of the optical lantern in its many forms.  
  
The alphabetical entries cover a wide range of subjects: inventors and patentees, makers and merchants, showmen, writers and lecturers; the fascinating variety of styles and shapes of lanterns, with all their delightful and exotic names; the ingenious mechanisms of slides; the organisations that used lanterns for education, propaganda or religious persuasion; and of course the collectors, collections and museums.  
  
The book is not just focused on Europe, you will find much about America and fascinating new insights into lanterns in Japan and Australia.
