We believe this is the largest collection of Magic Lantern Slides, 20,000+, ever offered at public auction in this format. This collection is from the Reading Public Museum and Art Gallery in Reading Pennsylvania. The slides had been stored and out of public view for over 70 years and date from late 19th century to first quarter 20th century, many by known photographers -Rau, Mengel, Reed, Takagi, others.
