Shipping to United States: $14.71

A rare set of six (6) antique French magic lantern slides dating from the late 19th century. The slides feature delicately full color hand painted illustrations on glass plates with pastel green paper binding around the edges. The slides have a variety of images illustrating the French folk song "Malbrough s'en va-t-en guerre" (Marlborough is going off to war), also known as The death and burial of the invincible Marlborough. All text on the slides are written in French.

The burlesque lament on the death of John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough (1650–1722) was written on a false rumor of that event after the Battle of Malplaquet in 1709, the bloodiest battle of the War of the Spanish Succession. It tells how Marlborough's wife, awaiting his return from battle, is given the news of her husband's death. It also tells that he was buried and that a nightingale sang over his grave. When Louis XVII of France was born in 1785 (son of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette and heir to the French throne) he was wet-nursed by a peasant named Geneviève Poitrine. The nurse, whilst rocking the royal cradle, sang "Marlborough s'en va-t-en guerre". The name, the simplicity of the words, and the melodiousness of the tune, interested the queen, and she frequently sang it. Everybody repeated it after her, including the king. The song was sung in the state apartments of Versailles, in the kitchens and in the stables. It became immensely popular. From the court it was adopted by the tradespeople of Paris, and it passed from town to town, and country to country.

DIMENSIONS:
Each slide measures 5.1" Long x 1.3" Wide (13 cm x 3,5 cm).

CONDITION:
The set of six antique magic lantern slides is in very good antique condition with age appropriate wear. There are no chips or cracks to the glass. There are some wear in places to the binding paper.

    1. INFORMATION I COLLECT

    To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information if you contact me directly.

    2. WHY I NEED YOUR INFORMATION & HOW I USE IT

    I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
    - as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
    - when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
    - if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law;
    - as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

    3. INFORMATION SHARING & DISCLOSURE

    Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
    - Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you with my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
    - Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
    - Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
    - Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for up to7 years (as required by UK tax law).
    - Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU. I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction.

    - Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
