see generic title London, ancient and modern (generic set title – 2 different versions are known)


The 1899 Newton catalogue lists slides 1-131 (under telegraphic code KQ) and separately 140-215 (under code KS). Slides 26-131 and 143-215 are in alphabetical order by title.

The 1902 supplement lists slides 299-310 (again under code KQ), so presumably slides 216-298 were added in 1901, as advertised in OMLJ 12.145. The 1902 supplement also uses the title London and London life.

However the 1888 Indispensable Handbook refers to 178 slides, so there was probably another version or arrangement of this set preceding the one listed here.

Slides 1-25 have the same titles as those slides in the later version of this set [Lucerna 3005454].
