The Sciopticon Manual, Explaining Lantern Projections in General and the Sciopticon Apparatus in Particular Including Magic Lantern Attachments, Experiments, Novelties, Colored and Photo-Transparencies, Mechanical Movements, etc.
Marcy, L. J.
good results with little trouble, I have concluded to omit 
the gas, which would increase the bulk of the Manual, 
without a corresponding addition to its usefulness. 
The lime light, in an improved form, having been in¬ 
troduced into the Sciopticon, it has become expedient to 
append to the Sciopticon Manual, a description of the 
apparatus and directions for its use. 
The demand for Lantern projections is steadily on the 
increase. A fine photograph (and what can be finer?) 
projected upon a large screen, before a thousand spec¬ 
tators, gives, it is safe to say, ten thousand times the 
satisfaction that one alone with his stereoscope receives 
from it. The appreciation is cumulative. “The more 
the merrier,” is the philosophy of it. 
The Sciopticon with its oil lamp, rather than with its 
lime light, continues to be the choice of the many, be¬ 
cause its use is convenient and inexpensive. There are 
purposes and occasions however for which the lime light 
is a necessity. The gas therefore has now received its 
full share of attention. Much of the added matter is 
intended to assist those who have a Sciopticon, to pro¬ 
vide themselves with interesting objects for exhibition, 
without resort to a large assortment of exoensive slides.
