Slide set: Old Testament history (religious: Newton & Co., 76 slides, in/before 1925)

Known references to this set
Newton's lantern slide catalogue: section 10 -- scripture, lantern services, church history and missionary subjects (London: Newton & Co., c.1926), 1114-1115

“Messrs Newton are glad to announce that, by arrangement with Messrs Eyre & Spottiswoode (Bible Warehouse), Ltd, they are privileged to publish an entirely new series of slides illustrating Old Testament History from the pictures by William Hole.

It is felt that the wide-spread popularity of the set of slides already published under the title of 'Jesus of Nazareth' (see page 1138) is an assurance of the cordial welcome that will be extended to the magnificent series of Old Testament pictures by this well-known artist.

All lovers of the Bible will be grateful that so fine an artist, so competent a master of the landscapes of the Holy Land and of the hardly altered figures, habits and crafts of its peoples, should have lived to fulfil thus much of the task which his reverent spirit had set itself, of illustrating the whole of the sacred history recorded in the Bible.

In this second series of pictures there are evident the same originality and freshness of conception which marked the first -- a freshness born, not of mere skill but of truth and reverence.

Messrs Newton are able to supply copies of the descriptive book at the published prices of £1 5s. 0d. and a special de luxe edition of 500 copies only at £4 4s. 0d. each.”
