Readings or songs

Charles Mackay and Frances Allitsen, There's a land (London: Boosey & Co., 1896)

Agnes M. Sibly, ‘There's a land: extra verses’ in Short lantern readings 30 (1900)

It's possible there was an earlier version of this set, perhaps coinciding with the 1896 publication of the song or the addition of two verses related to the Anglo-Boer War in 1900. If so the earlier version may have been of 7 or 9 slides.
