Hymns in large type [W. Butcher]

General description of this series
Notes

A series of at least 90 sets of hymn slides, typically 2-6 slides per set. The earliest sets were produced in or before 1901, with later sets added until at least around 1910.

The slides show typeset lyrics superimposed on a monochrome drawing of a generic landscape or sea scene, sometimes with musical notation ('mf', 'f', 'p' etc.) to indicate the loudness for singing.
