"The lecture will be illustrated by thirty-five splendid transparent views! (Beautifully executed at an expense of $6000!) In oil colors, on canvas, from drawings taken on the spot. They represent the Hindoos engaged in their domestic occupations and religious rites; landscapes, cities, palaces, temples, remarkable persons, and various other objects of interest. In the preparation of these paintings, the talent of several eminent artists has been employed, and the work is executed in a superior manner. The paintings are not exhibited by a Magic Lantern."
