The Thaumatrope
In 1825, a famous English physician, John A. Paris, created the optical toy, [known as] the thaumatrope: a disc with a comlimentary image on each side, and strings attached at each end of its horizontal axis. When the disc is spun on the strings, the two complimentary images appear to merge. ~ Cartoons One Hundred Years of Cinema Animation, Giannalberto Bendazzi
