Booklet of instructions for a Fantascope, 1833. Artist: Thomas Mann Baynes

Booklet of instructions for a Fantascope, 1833. The Fantascope or Phenakistoscope was an optical toy depending on persistence of vision for its effect. By spinning a disc picture-side towards a mirror, and looking through the slits which act as shutters, you briefly see the reflection of each successive picture and they appear to move. This title page of a booklet issued with the toy shows scenes from the discs. From Fantascope published by Ackermann and Co. (London, 1833).
