"Christie's Old Organ" for Magic Lantern Slides
By Lorraine Aressy

Dave Smith is planning to reproduce the Victorian child's book
"Christie's Old Organ".  This story is a must for barrel organ and
magic lantern lovers as it has been produced in a complete set of magic
lantern slides.  If the stamp on the fly leaf is from the famous
optician, Newton & Co, this book may be the reading for the slide set.

As a member of the Magic Lantern Society, I remember having seen this
story on a video from a past meeting.

But I am not a specialist in Victorian productions, so you could get
more information from the English Magic Lantern Society site.  Ask
your enquery at the following address :

Sure, many people may be interested in a reprint.  And if you find
another original for 50 pence, I will be interested too !
