    Picture Ribbons.

    An Exposition of the Methods and Apparatus Employed in the Manufacture of the Picture Ribbons used in Projecting Lanterns to Give the Appearance of Objects in Motion.
    First edition of the author's book on chronophotography and proto-film reels. Charles Francis Jenkins (1867-1934) was a prolific inventor (over 400 patents were issued to his name) and an important pioneer of cinema and television. He devised a "motion picture projecting box", which, on 6 June 1894, became the first apparatus to project a film in front of an audience, an event which took place at Jenkins's cousin's jewellery shop in Richmond, Virginia.
