possibly same as Giant Bugaboo Bill (recitation: Alfred Pumphrey, 4 slides, in/before 1888)

see generic title Giant Bugaboo Bill (generic set title)


This appears to be the same story as the Pumphrey set of the same title, known only from a reference in the 1888 Indispensable handbook; however the image style, labels and mounting of the illustrated slides don't fit with Pumphrey's typical style. There may have been two versions of the set, or the 1888 attribution to Pumphrey may be an error.
