Caption

Praxinoscope. Historical engraving of a praxinoscope, invented by M. Reynaud of Paris, France. This was a nineteenth century precursor to the cine camera. As with cinematography, the praxinoscope depended on persistence of vision to create the illusion of a moving image. When viewing the revolving drum though a slit (not seen), the pictures appeared to move.
