Description Before the Movies de Terry Borton:

Before the Movies is the first book about American screen entertainment in the pre-movie era. A groundbreaking study, lavishly illustrated with 330 color pictures, it is a comprehensive survey of the American artists who created early magic-lantern stories and songs for the screen. The book emphasizes the work of Joseph Boggs Beale, a pioneer in the field and demonstrates that Beale almost single-handedly created American-made screen entertainment for the generation before the movies. His lifetime output was 2,073 images in 258 sets-the screen-time equivalent of 14 full-length films-which millions enjoyed every year. The provenance, attribution, and dates of Beale's lantern slides are discussed in detail, and a comprehensive catalog of his lantern images makes Before the Movies an essential reference volume. Terry Borton holds a doctorate in education from Harvard and is Director of the American Magic Lantern Theater. Deborah Borton holds a doctorate in education from the University of Pennsylvania and is President of the Magic Lantern Society of the United States and Canada.
