Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Here is the second set of Spanish American War Magic Lantern slides.

The second set is the 1899 Sears lecture series of 53 magic lantern slides. There are early and revised versions. My set is found in the 1902 Sears & Roebuck catalog 112 on page 266-267. This is set No. 21T231, The Spanish-American War and the Philippines Illustrated set. Here is a photo of the set and a copy of the original the flyer offered in the 1902 catalog. It had from 48 to 52 slides depending on which set you have. This one shown is the revised edition with 52 slides; 12 are color versions-- as described in the 1902 Sears catalog.
Each slide will enlarge if clicked on, then you can run through them as large size.

Here is an example slide. Each standard size slide had the Sears name and a title on one side of each slide.

I will show each of the slides as close ups and add the title of each slide. This is the 52 slide set shown in the 1902 Sears catalog. Back in the day I got this complete set for $100. :roll:

Here is a smaller multi picture set of 48 views. A non standard size. You see this size more often and it uses a different projector. Each slide has 4 views per long slide. Maker is unknown. The asking price on this set is approximately $150 :o :o :snooty: :snooty: , but it's a $40 set, so I will not buy it. It would be nice to have. The enlargement of the list of titles is interesting. :shifty:
