How about that! Is there like a certain amount of text on the backs of each one? And regular playing cards on the obverses?
One one side there are pictures.

I see! That’s quite interesting—never seen anything like it. Thanks for the photos. I like the line illustrations that are around the edges of the text.

Looking at the box, I get the idea there must have been other books done as well.

I didn't think of that! You must be right.

YAYYYY!

Finally got my copy of Moving Pictures: How They Are Made And Worked.


So excited. It literally came from England, although it said it was coming from Florida. So I had to wait almost 3 weeks, but here it is.
