Caption: Reynaud's praxinoscope, 1882. The praxinoscope was an animation device, the successor to the zoetrope. It was invented in France in 1877 by Charles-Emile Reynaud. This novelty item was a precursor to modern cinematography. Praxinoscopes used mirrors, as opposed to slits. A series of sequential pictures are rotated on a revolving drum to give the impression of movement.
