"Perry & Co.'s latest novelty. Fenby's patent Panteidoscope. Lay the strip of coloured designs on a table; then pass one end in at the horizontal slit in the back of the instrument and under the bar at the front. Draw the slip backwards and forwards, and the most beautiful variations of colour and design will be seen in the mirrors. N.B.: This instrument should face a bright light. With this instrument endless amusement and instruction may be secured by collecting all kinds of coloured scraps, such as Christmas cards, old valentines, coloured borders from almanacks, natural flower leaves, birds, feathers, &c. &c. These should be cut to suitable sizes, and be neatly mounted on a strip of paper. Price one shilling each."--Perry & Co.'s Illustrated price current, April 5, 1882, p. 114.
