This set is attributed to York (maker 'F') in the 1905 Riley catalogue, but has not been identified in any other York sources as yet.
The J.W. Butcher catalogue only lists some slides from this set, divides the set into two series, and also includes five other titles numbered between 11 and 25, suggesting that there was probably a second series of these slides which does not appear in the Riley catalogue.
