A glorious selection of photos, hand-tinted lantern slides and tales from Burton Holmes's extraordinary multi-volume Travelogues, originally published in 1901. From the boulevards of Paris to the pyramids of Egypt, China's Great Wall and bustling Marrakech, Burton Holmes was there at the turn of the 20th century, turning iconic images into hand-tinted lantern slides which he enthusiastically projected to packed houses across the country at the turn-of-the-last century. This captivating collection of tinted photographs presents the best of his work.  (TVL116, $29.95)
