520    This book is the first history of British animated 
       cartoons, from the earliest period of cinema in the 1890s 
       up to the late 1920s. In this period cartoonists and 
       performers from earlier traditions of print and stage 
       entertainment came to film to expand their artistic 
       practice, bringing with them a range of techniques and 
       ideas that shaped the development of British animation. 
       These were commercial rather than avant-garde artists, but
       they nevertheless saw the new medium of cinema as offering
       the potential to engage with modern concerns of the early 
       20th century, be it the political and human turmoil of the
       First World War or new freedoms of the 1920s. Cook's 
       examination and reassessment of these films and their 
       histories reveals their close attention and play with the 
       way audiences saw the world. As such, this book offers new
       insight into the changing understanding of vision at that 
       time as Britain's place in the world was reshaped in the 
       early 20th century
