Cricket magic lantern slides and lecture notes.

Players and teams featured on the slides include W.G. Grace, Barnes, Ranji, Lockwood, Barlow, Stoddart, Townsend, Noble, Trumper, Hirst, Spofforth, Fry, William Gunn, Hornby, Jessop, Lohmann, Hawke, Briggs etc. Of the three hundred slides there are around forty slides, in the auctioneers opinion, which are 'first generation' images, probably taken from the original negative or print and these slides are much sharper images than the remaining slides which appear to be copy images which have been taken from rare and historical documents, paintings, photographs, photographs, drawings etc. The slides are accompanied by lecture notes to which the images on the slides were the illustrations. The typewritten notes comprising of eighty one pages, tied with ribbon at the corner, with handwritten annotation and prompts on some pages of the lecture notes. The first page is headed 'Cricket. Lecture 1' and begins with the story of the evolution of cricket from the very early days through to around the turn of the century, the notes include mention to the greats of that time including recollections and knowledge of Parr, Walker Brothers, Pilch, Emmett, the Graces, Nyren, Aylward, 'Lumpy Stevens', Harris, Small, 'Silver Billy' Beldham, Steel, Frederick Beauclerk, E.H. Budd, William Ward, Lambert, Felix, Mynn, William Clarke, Hayward, Carpenter etc, towards the end of the lecture notes he devotes many pages to his admiration for Edward Mills Grace. Although the author is unknown it appears the lecturer/author of the notes played cricket to a good standard with references 'I remember playing in a match at Barnsley where Ephraim Lockwood, then Yorkshire's best bat, was calmly given in, on an appeal for a catch at the wicket, though the hit could be plainly heard by every person on the field'.... and 'I was taking part in the match at Thornbury in June of '84 when O.G. Radcliffe scored 53 off three, five ball over, from E.M., the second over produced four sixes and a four...' within the notes. The slides and lecture notes are accompanied by two magic lanterns, one apparently in working order, and a lantern spare bulb. Occasional crack to odd glass plate and one broken otherwise in good condition, many labelled with name of player or team. A rare large collection of lantern slides with original lecture notes. The collection also includes additional items bought by Smith including a small selection of glass negatives featuring county and Test cricketers from various periods and a small collection of negatives of Colin Cowdrey batting in the nets
Estimate: £500/800
Hammer price: £2600
This collection was bought by Mike Smith from Phillips sale of September 1980 and all his life he was convinced that they were the collection of Alfred James Gaston, the Sussex cricket follower, collector and writer [and possibly dealer...]. Towards the end of his life in the period 1910 to mid 1920's he 'visited the towns and villages of the county to preach the gospel of cricket', also appearing in Kent, Lord's and the Oval, showing his lantern slides and lecturing from prepared notes and his notes appear to be of a similar format to these being sold in this lot. However there is no firm evidence of theses notes being Gaston's and although the notes do cover a great variety of cricketing subjects, there is not the leaning towards Sussex cricket which apparently Gaston's notes contained.

The first generation, sharper, images include eight of W.G. Grace, Ranji, Lockwood, R.G. Barlow, Stoddart, C.L. Townsend, Noble, J.H. Day, Rhodes, Fry, Briggs, W. Gunn, Lohmann, Ranji & Fry, Fry & Townsend etc and teams including England 1895, England 1893, England at the Oval 1893, Veterans at Lord's 1889, Gentlemen of England at Lord's 1888, Kent 1884, Nottinghamshire 1884, Gentlemen of M.C.C. 1887 etc.
