Notes

Catalogue that offers various lanterns (sciopticons) in several sizes and accessories (pages 3-30). On pages 31-51, some lantern slides are mentioned with an emphasis on moving and slipping slides, but this is not a complete list of lantern slides in stock of Merkelback. In the second section ('Optische Afdeeling'), the catalogue lists other optical devices for education, toy and application such as microscopes, stereoscopes, magnifying glasses, model steam engines, model trains and ships, equipment for demonstrating electricity, batteries, electric doorbells, telephones, light bulbs, magnets, and a shadow theatre.
The catalogue is richly illustrated; some devices are even illustrated by photographs, giving a good idea on how the items looked like.
