| A new set of thaumatrope cards! The
thaumatrope was the first invention (ca 1824) that clearly showed
the phenomenon of persistence of vision and led the way toward
the eventual invention of the cinema.This is a reproduction of
a thaumatrope set first published in Paris in the 1880s.
There were a variety of designs included from package to package,
which would include eight different cards. We have chosen twelve,
plus have added a special historical booklet, which has instructions
for drawing your own thaumatrope designs on the 2 blank cards
that are also included.
