Magic Lantern

By Sarah Dellmann

The Magic Lantern (also known as optical lantern or stereopticon) is a projection device: a slide is projected with the help of lenses, condensers and artificial light onto a screen, wall, or other opaque surface. First mentioned by Dutch physicist Christiaan Huygens in 1659, it developed into one of the most popular optical media to entertain and instruct. Early film projectors could be seen as a direct “derivative”, adding a “kinetoscope attachment” while using the magic lantern as light source. The slide projector and digital beamer with its corresponding slides or PowerPoint presentations can be seen as its successors.

Since its invention, the magic lantern was used for entertainment, education, research and as a children’s toy. They amused and instructed young and old, poor and rich. Traveling entertainers and lecturers brought the lantern to peasants in the village and citizens in town. Slides were used for a variety of occasions: on fairgrounds and in private homes, in theaters and churches, in society club houses and community halls, in venues for popular education, and in schools and university lecture halls. Hence the incredibly rich slide collections that can be found in museums and archives, in the cellars of university buildings and in the attics of religious convents.

Magic lantern and lantern slide distribution catalogs are rare items and mostly held in private collections. These catalogs can help archivists and collectors to identify magic lanterns and lantern slides and they also enrich knowledge of the development of the apparatus and projection technology. The illustrations give insight into the way in which the apparatus worked and what lantern slides, lanterns and accessories such as light sources, special lenses and projection equipment looked like.

The promotional tone in the descriptions, although not to be taken at face value, tells us a lot about audience expectations, the intentions of producers, the work of lanternists and technological problems (that the advertised apparatus had supposedly solved).

This collection was initiated by the European research project “A Million Pictures: Magic Lantern Slide Heritage as Artefacts in the Common European History of Learning”. Until May 2018, project members will enrich this collection regularly. Additional catalogs in all languages and from all contexts are more than welcome -- just contact the MHDL!

Ivens & Co was one of the big Dutch producers and vendors of photographic equipment, lantern slides, and projection material between 1880's and at least WWII. This catalogue is in fact a catalogue of slides by York and Son that Ivens & Co had in stock. It probably indicates that Ivens had an agency or similar arrangement for Newton & Co. (by this date the owners of the York stock) and could supply any of their slides to the Netherlands; Ivens would probably not have carried a permanent stock of all of the slides.
