|The Junior Lecturers'
Series was produced by W. Butcher & Sons, London (1870-1906) under the
trade name of
Primus. The slides were sold as a set of eight in a cardboard box. The prize of each
set was initially about two shillings but at the end of World War I the
price had more than doubled. Size of the slides: 8,2 x 8,2 cm (3 1/4" x 3 1/4").
The complete series was divided into three series, A, B and C.
Series A was described as 'comic tales and nursery stories, with reading on the slides'. Series B and C had readings printed on paper lecture notes. Longer stories required two or more chapters, always multiples of eight slides. The glasses are fitted with a protective glass and black paper binding tape. The images were either circular or square with rounded corners.
Butcher also produced the Primus Projection Post Cards, manufactured from the same images as used on the slides.
