General selections from the collections of the Centre
The Centre's outstanding international significance comes from the breadth of its historical scope as well as the rarity of its holdings: among them Lumière Cinématographe No. 108 (only about 400 were ever made, and perhaps 50 survive worldwide); a 1671 edition of Athanasius Kircher's Ars Magna Lucis et Ombrae, the first book to illustrate the magic lantern; and William K. Laurie Dickson's own annotated copy of his History of the Kinetoscope, Kinetograph and Kinetophonograph, published in 1895. More details on the scope of the Centre's resources can be found on the Scope of the Bill Douglas Centre's collections page. Below we provide an opportunity to sample some of the areas of particular interest in the collections.
