A girl with a hat and a man are seen opposite each other at a table on which a praxinoscope theater has been placed. This device was invented in 1879 by Charles-Émile Reynaud and consisted of a wooden case with a rectangular viewing hole and a mirror drum allowing the animation of sequences of twelve frames.
The caption reads in the original French:
Le nouveau praxinoscope-théâtre de M. Reynaux [sic].
