I assumed it would be copying with true B & W film and since this is then
going to be relativly easy to copy with one of many standard film
scanners you end up with the best of both worlds.  Doing the initial
copying with a 35mm camera setup should be relativly quick and 2 rolls
(or even 4 rolls of film) isn't that expensive.

I assume the lantern slides will be positives so you end up with negatives
which can be printed with standard wet printing if wanted and to any

There had been talk of limited budget, then the price of expensive
specialist large format scanners.  I'm assuming the origionals are probably
something like standard 2 1/4" x 3 1/4" lantern slides.  Oil (like
microscope emersion oil) can do wonders on making cracks disapear.
