W AND S JONES BRASS SOLAR MICROSCOPE. CIRCA 1792- 1800 Williams and Samuel Jones brass solar projection microscope. A projection microscope was often used for entertainment to project an image onto a wall for a large group. Often a group would gather on a Sunday afternoon for a"slide" show. The projection system- usually a"Solar Microscope" This instrument was usually mounted in a hole in a window shutter of a house or building to capture the sunlight of the sun. When in use the specimen is placed beyond the focus of the lens. Since the object cannot emit light itself it is illuminated from behind. Outside the building the mirror reflects sunlight to a condenser; the light rays pass through the condenser and specimen. Enter the lens and are refracted forming an image in the plane of the lens. The image is real, enlarged, ... morelaterally reversed and inverted. Since the image is projected across a room, a lens of longer focal length is used. The use of the solar microscope depended upon the sun, the light source. The inventor of the solar microscope is not really known exactly but credit probably goes to Fahrenheit probably before 1736. Lieberkuhn is responsible for bringing the innovation to England in 1740, demonstrating his reflecting mirror and solar microscope to the Royal Society Members. He did not claim to be the inventor. The origin of the solar microscope dates back to the camera obscura of the 16th century. It used a lens in a shutter or other aperture of a darkened room to project a greatly magnified outdoor image on an opposite wall inside the building. Later Cuff and Martin made their own versions of the solar microscope were used to project opaque objects. This solar microscope is lacquered brass, rackworth focus on the tube, a square brass plate with two(2) drilled holes for mounting onto a wall. A long mirror, measuring 6 3/4" x 2 1/2" with no cracks and in great shape. The mirror is adjusted by a rack and pinion system and can be rotated. The microscope is identified with
A very heavy(23 pounds/10.4 Kg! antique brass and iron spectroscope. The 2 scopes are about 10.5" long and it's about 13" high on it's black iron tripod base. The optics appear in good condition with crosshairs visible and the prisms are intact. Very good overall cosmetic condition on the instrument. Brass could use a polish.

ANTIQUE MICROSCOPIC SLIDE CABINET. CIRCA 1800's Microscopic slide cabinets were a unique cabinet to catalog and store treasured slides for easy retrieval. The cabinet itself was designed to be a unique storage system that would be found in a nice library or laboratory environment. It would house microscopic slides that would be available for demonstration or a conversation piece for interested quests or colleagues. The cabinet was often constructed from heavy. Strong and durable wood, perhaps mahogany or cherry, many cabinets with ornate carvings and immaculate detail. Brass handles, locks and keys would often accent the cabinet. The drawers may have alabaster pulls to accent the cabinet finish and design. Often the drawer pulls may be carved wooden pulls that off set the wood finish. Some of the cabinets had velvet- lined drawers, which ... moreadded a delicate, sharp look for the microscope slides to rest on in the drawer itself. This wooden microscopic slide cabinet is a very heavy, well constructed cabinet, measuring 17 1/2" H x 17" W x 11 1/2" D. It has 29 drawers with carved wooden pulls, some are knob-like and a few that are pin-wheel shaped that were carved to replace the pulls that have been lost over time. Unique design. There is a working lock on the door of the cabinet with the key- see image. There is a large drawer in the base of the cabinet for storage of larger items- see image. The top of the cabinet has a brass decorative carrying handle- see image. The cabinet has a storage capacity of about 800 plus slides. The overall finish on the cabinet is in good condition and can be polished. The glass does not have any cracks. The slides in one of the images are placed in the drawer for demonstration and are not for sale. The buyer will need to be aware that this is a well-built but extremely HEAVY cabinet which will require some extra shipping charges. Which is estimated in the shipping section. A nice cabinet for some treasured slides!
ANTIQUE VICTORIAN PAPER WRAPPED SLIDES. CIRCA 1800's A wooden slide case with twelve(12) trays of antique slides. For a total of 72 slides, primarily from the Victorian 1800 time period. The slides are in excellent condition, no cracking or broken slides. There are images of almost all of the trays of slides. Examples of some of the slides are: Diatomageae by various preparators such as R and J Beck, Eggs of moth, many diatom slides, Polycystina slides, slide of wool, slide of Hummingbird feathers, unusual paper design on six(6) slides. Many slides have round coverslips, some have"ring" mounting, several slides have"yellowing" mounting medium which does not affect viewing the object under the microscope. See all images. The wooden case in in excellent condition and the case closes well and has the traditional"C" ... moreclasps to secure the slide door. It measures 8" l x 4"w x 3 1/2" h. The wooden box of slides is somewhat heavy and will require extra shipping costs. Overall a nice set of Victorian slides!
MUSEUM MICROSCOPE CIRCULAR DISCS. CIRCA 1800'S A unique set of circular discs( also known as Hertel discs) that fit a museum microscope. One of the early museum microscopes. Often referred to as a"Library" microscope was by Thomas Winter in London about 1835. His discs were actually horizontal rotating drums that had about 40 prepared slides. The museum microscope would be a great instrument to demonstrate the observation of both slides and geological specimens to students and people who came to the museum. The observer could easily change the discs and view any of the slides or geological specimens at their leisure. The discs in this cabinet hold twelve(12) specimens per disc. There are several discs that have"open" specimen slots that have rock and mineral specimens that are held in place in small mounting boxes ... moreunder the disc frame. There are a few of the rock or mineral specimens that are missing. Most of the discs area black with a brass frame underneath. Many of the discs are numbered and some of the discs do show some use but overall still in great shape. The discs that have actual microscopic slides have small slides with the specimen such as plant objects, insects and other natural objects. The slides area odd cut so that they will fit like a"pie" wedge on the circular discs and held in place with cut leather pieces to help hold in place. Many of the plant sections are stained with specific stains to demonstrate specific parts, entities or structures. The drawers are lined with black velvet-like fabric. Each drawer has a brass plaque with numbers tacked to the drawer front. The bottom drawer has dividers to house extra slides, leather pieces, etc. The discs measure 6" in diameter, the drawers measure 7 1/2" x 6 1/2" The case measures 8 3/4" L x 7 3/4" D x 9 3/4" H. It has a nice mahogany finish, mostly dove tail construction, no blemishes, has a glass door and brass knobs. The cabinet is a bit heavy for its size. A unique collections item!
VINTAGE BRASS MAGNIFIER/ MICROSCOPE SET. 1800- 1900'S A set of unique early brass magnifier/ microscopes. The first small magnifier is a"universal" microscope used as a magnifier for small natural objects. Nice lacquered brass finish. The next magnifier is a"tripod" used for small stationary objectives. An often used as a map magnifier. Nice brass magnifier. The third magnifier, an unusual brass cylindrical"insectoscope" This little instrument consists of a brass cylinder case that measures 2 inches in height and 1 inch in diameter. The actual"livebox" magnifier unscrews from the brass case and slides out. The wall of the livebox has 2 small viewing windows for observation that measure about 1 inch in length and about 5/8 inches in height. The bottom of the livebox has a plastic-like floor to view ... morethe insects or objects by inverting the livebox upright, and this floor can be unscrewed from the brass livebox. At the top of the livebox is the actual eyepiece-magnifier lens, which can also be unscrewed. The magnification is excellent! The lacquered brass finish is in good condition. A similar instrument can be seen in Billing's Microscope Collection, p. 201, Figure 291. This instrument is unsigned but similar instruments were made by a Frenchman, F. V. Raspail. There is no cardboard or leather case for the instrument, just the brass cylindrical case. The 4th magnifier is also a"flea-like" microscope. Brass, twists to raise or lower to magnify- see" thread-like design in the" middle of the scope- see image. As you twist the magnifier. It will magnify the object. See the images with the magnifier lens. The final microscope is a botanical microscope, also known as a"flower" magnifier. There is a part of the magnifier lens missing and the thumb-screw that moves along the arm that extends from the body of the microscope. But it is still a good representation of the time period. A nice set of vintage magnifiers!

RARE VINTAGE VON RAPPARD SLIDES. CIRCA 1800- 1900 A set of rare vintage Von Rappard slides. Circa 1800- 1900. These slides were prepared by Conrad Von Rappard, Switzerland. Conrad Von Rappard was born in 1805 in Unna Westphalia, Prussia. One of his ventures led him to biology and an interest in microscopy. He established the company Microscopical Institute of August Menzel and Co. in Switzerland about 1850, which meant"microscopy business" This was one of the first businesses of its kind in Switzerland. More like a microscopical preparation service. He received his doctrate in 1852 on his studies of synaptae. His work led him to many European coasts where he studied sea life, as many of his slides were marine biology life. His slides were a black with gold pattern paper wrapped slides, both in the traditional 1' x 3" but ... morealso in the continental size, 2 5/8" x 5/ 8" His slides also had a specific pattern on the reverse side of the slide. The continental slides were often prepared in sets of 24 or 100, usually of sea life or insects and insect parts. These slides had round identification numbers and there were some slides that may not have these numbers attached or they had fallen off the slide. These numbers were better for the identification of his slides rather than writing because his slides reached many international markets. Each set of slides included a booklet or guide to serve as a key to the slides. This set of slides has 15 slides and comes with a paper written guide to the identification of the slides. Some of the slides area missing- 3,4,5,6,7,10,11,17 and18. The paper guide describes 24 slides. There are few slides that have cracks in the paper wrapping but the cracks do not interfere with the overall slide. Slide 15 has a crack in the coverglass but is not broken and does not interfere with the specimen. There is no box for this set of slides but I will provide a box for them to be stored. Although this set of slides is not perfect, it is an overall excellent set of uniqu
VICTORIAN SET MICROSCOPIC SLIDES. CIRCA 1800- 1900 In the mid 1800's the preparation of microscopic slides had developed into both an" art" and a" science" With the founding of Histotechnology the art and science of microscopic slide preparation. Both natural science and tissue had begun to advance. Rudolph Virchow's Doctrine of Cellular Pathology, 1858 led to the recognition of microscopic pathology, serving as a vital and essential function of medicine. This recognition led to the birth of Histotechnology. Slides prepared prior to 1850 were mostly of naturalist composition. The slides were usually of glass, hand cut, very sharp edges, uneven and of varying sizes and thicknesses. Most of the slide preparators established decorative"colored papers" with designs to identify and market their work- their ... moresignature. The paper wrapping also providing a protective covering from the sharp cut glass edges. A particular design or pattern, and/ or color would represent a preparator. The paper wrappings along with the design and pattern became the" art" and the technique of preparing the specimen or object became the" science" of Histotechnology. This set of Victorian slides represents numerous microscopic slide preparators- H. Webb. Thomas Groves, F.R. Griffths, J.T. Norman, W.A. Firth, JB" Russell, Smith Beck and Beck, H. Dalton, Wm. Ord C. M. Topping, H. Darleston, R. Sutter, and Jul Burger to name a few. The slides represent insects, some human tissues, insect parts, botany and diatoms. Also are a couple of actual"wooden slides with specimens. There is one paper wrapped slide that has a partially attached/ removed label that reads" Queckett Microscopical Club- see image, a rare find. The set of slides are encased in a wooden slide case that bears the name C. Baker, London- see image. The case has eleven(11) slide trays, each tray holds six(6) slides each and the case has 66 slides total, and not all of the slide trays could be photographed for inse
BRASS FOLDING FIELD MAGNIFIER LOUPE IN CASE. CIRCA 1800-1900 A brass folding field magnifier loupe in case. Probably late 1800's- early 1900's. The magnifier folds neatly for storage in black velvet and red satin lined case. The red lining does show some fading over time but still nice. It is brass and when opened it measures 1 7/8" H x 1 1/2" W x 2" D. The actual magnifier lens measures 1 1/8" in diameter. This magnifier can be used to study natural science materials, up close viewing of specimens, maps or any other small items that may need higher magnification. The case is worn due to use but still in good condition, and measures 3 1/4" X 2 1/2" X 7/8" A nice early brass magnifier loupe! `4`.RcmdId ViewItemDescV4,RlogId p4%60bo7%60jtb9%3Feog4d71f%2B%3E%604%60-14a8fcbcf68-0x116-
H. DALTON MICROMOSAIC SLIDE. CIRCA 1800-1900 A micromosaic slide of butterfly scales prepared by Henry"Harold" Dalton. Henry Dalton. Later known as"Harold" Dalton, 1829- 1911 was a preparator of butterfly scales and diatoms into an image on a microscope slide for viewing under the microscope. He developed an interest in science and microscopy at an early age. He developed an expertise as a micrographer and prepared slides with diatoms and butterfly scales known as"micromosaics" His slide preparations are rare and sought after. Dalton's microscopic preparations were a work of art. Perfection and detail. He would create a design, then collect butterfly scales from butterflies the world over and construct them into exquisite micromosaics. The mounting of the butterfly scales took enormous talent, patience and ... moretime to create, place and mount into a picture on a slide. This slide has the design of butterfly scales and hairs of two( 2) birds. The label on the right side of the slide reads: H Dalton, Preparator. The slide label on the left slide reads: Butterfly scales and hairs arranged as two dead birds against a wall" Written in pencil is: WS/21 in the left lower corner of the slide label describing the image. The image can be seen- photography does not do it justice. It is a colorful mosaic mounting. At the top and bottom of the wall are butterfly scales representing flowers and plants see images. The slide comes in a nice case with a push button latch- see image. There is a satin ribbon inside the case to use to retrieve the slide by lifting the ribbon and the ribbon will lift the slide for easier retrieval. The case is black on the exterior with gold printing of seller: R and J Beck. The case measures 3 5/8" X 1 3/4" This slide is an excellent preparation of Dalton's work! Nice slide!
WOODEN CASE VARIOUS MICROSCOPIC SLIDES. CIRCA 1800-1900 A wooden slide case of various microscopic slides. The slides range from polariscope preparations. Insects, insect parts, eggs of flea, tissues from St. Bartholomew hospital, diatoms and a set of fungi whole mounts. There are two( 2) trays of the fungi whole mounts, one slide ring coverglass of the fungi is half broken but the specimen is still intact. These slides are labeled at the top with"stamp-like" adhesive labels with numbers beginning with 75 through 84- see image with one( 1) tray shown. The microscopic slide preparators include: J. T. Norman, C. Baker, W. H. Darleson, E. Wheeler, Levant, G. Navigula, W. M. Ord, W. Watson and Son, J. Ross, Thomas Groves, H. Cliff, A. Franks, R and J Beck and J. D. Moller( JDM labels with small initial) The W. M. Ord slide has been ... morerepaired at the bottom but does not affect the specimen- see image. There are eleven( 11) slide trays with six( 6) slides per tray for a total of 66 slides. The wooden slide case is in good condition- the finish is worn but does not affect the case. The case has the label"Millikin and Lawley, 165 Strand, London" see image- and measures 4 1/2"W x 8 1/4"L x 3 1/4"D. The slides will be individually wrapped and placed in a slide box for shipping along with the wooden case. The case is secured with"C" clips. This is still a good representative set of early microscopic slide preparators and interesting specimens!
FRENCH RARE CIRCULAR BONE CELL SPECIMEN MOUNTS. CIRCA 1800 A set of early rare French bone cell mounts. There are a total of seven( 7) mounts. These mounts are bone preparations that have botanical or other naturalist specimens mounted on circular discs of mica. Then supported by a small brass ring. The mounts are labeled in French and are written on the outer circular edge. The writing is legible on the cells. There are two( 2) of the mica coverglass that are cracked- see image- but do not interfere with the view of the specimen. There is also one( 1) of the mounts that has both the specimen and one of the underside mica discs missing, but the outside top mica disc and brass ring are still intact. Each cell measures about 9/16" inch in diameter. There is no box or case to house these specimen discs, but I will provide a box. Interestingly, ... morethese do represent Ypelaar mounts but are of French origin. Overall. This is still a nice representative set of bone cells and are rare to find.
SMALL ALABASTER CODDINGTON MAGNIFIER. CIRCA 1800'S Alabaster Coddington magnifier. This magnifier is unique. Small and detailed. It has two( 2) lens attached to each end of a short barrel with a handle. The lenses are plano-convex type with their surfaces positioned toward each other, face to face. There is a diameter stop in the middle of the barrel, which gives the magnifier the performance of a Coddington lens. The lens is a single thick cut lens cut from a glass sphere with a groove cut around the mid part that acts as a stop. The working distance on the magnifier is short and focuses near to the object. The magnifier measures about 2 1/4" in length and the barrel has a diameter of 1/2" A neat addition to any magnifier or small microscope collection!
