Myriorama second series, Italian Scenery by Clark
published by Samuel Leigh.
The word Myriorama derives from Greek myrias,
“ten thousand”, and refers to the different combinations possible with a
relatively small number of cards.
The Myriorama was invented in
France around 1823 by Jean-Pierre Brés and developed in England by John H. Clark.
The Myriorama (second Series) consists entirely of Italian
Scenery, Designed by Mr Clark. The Second Series is capable of even
greater variation than the First, as the number of cards is increased
from 16 to 24. The changes or variations which may be produced by the 24
