“This Series of the Life Histories of some of the most important of the Old Testament Characters has been arranged specially for those who wish to teach the lessons to be drawn from these old Stories; and with this object Mr C.S. Dixon from whose designs the slides are made, has devoted much time to getting the details as accurate as pssible, and to providing a sufficient number of subjects in each 'Life' to make them really interesting and efficient for their purpose. The Artist has been most successful in depicting the scenes and bringing out the meaning of the various incidents; and the sets have the great advantage of continuity of style, being all the work of one artist and treated from the same standpoint.”
