The largest lantern audience in OMLJ 8.94 (March 1897)

“Probably the largest and most distinguished audience that listened to any lantern lecture was on the occasion of Dr Nansen's discourse before the Royal Geographical Society at the Albert Hall on the 8th ult., when he gave a graphic description of his travels in the far North.
[...] one of the most important, unique and successful lantern lectures of modern times.”
