Notes

The 1899 Newton slide catalogue lists slides 1-6 and uses the telegraphic code 'QI'. The 1909 and 1913 catalogues add an 'Introductory Slide' [i.e. a set title] numbered 0, and use the code '8QI'.

The change of code may simply be to distinguish the 7-slide version from the original, or may indicate two different versions of the set (e.g. adoption of another maker's version as Newton's principal stock item).
