The images are based on Busch's series Der Schnuller ('The dummy' or 'The pacifier'), but were redrawn for this slide set.

The illustrated slides are all standard 3¼ inch square slides, but most are mounted in wooden frames 4 inches by 6⅝ inches (a common practice among late C19th dealers to adapt standard slides to fit lanterns without a slide carrier).
