"To make the panoramic pictures, insert the figures, which will be found in the pocket attached to this book, into the spaces which are marked with numbers corresponding to those upon the figures. A variety of scenes, however, can be formed, and unending pleasure provided, by placing the figures in innumerable positions, and sometimes in one picture background sometimes in another, so that constant change and interest is obtained."--Directions.
