Primus junior lecturers' series

General description of this series
Notes

A popular series of eight-slide sets of chromo-litho slides aimed mainly at children, usually accompanied by short reading pamphlets.

Produced between 1900 and the 1930s by several incarnations of the W. Butcher business, they remain one of the most commonly-found types of British slide.
