Walter D. Welford and Henry Sturmey (compilers), The 'indispensable handbook' to the optical lantern: a complete cyclopaedia on the subject of optical lanterns, slides, and accessory apparatus (London: Iliffe & Son, 1888), pp. 128-129

“A remarkable novelty, which ought to satisfy the professional lecturer, either for theatre or class room purposes, the great advantage being gained of rapidly throwing and changing upon the screen the general view of an object, the microscopic portion of the same enlarged, and if required as in chemistry, for instance, the actual experiment in operation. The workmanship throughout is of the highest order.”
