The zoetrope or daedalum was invented in 1834 by William George Horner English. It consists of a series of drawings printed in the horizontal direction in bands of paper placed inside a rounding drum mounted on an axis. When turning the apparatus, the images in the movement are perceived through a series of vertical slots in the middle of the cylinder.
It is accompanied by 50 different animations in 25 reversible strips, similar to those traditionally used at that time.
A manual with its history and operation is included.
