Please read carefully the following report. The figures are an integral part of this description. Offered for auction is an antique brass Martin-type"Drum" microscope. Made in ~1840 and unsigned. The microscope is lacking the case and accessories and has some condition issues. But it can still make a very attractive display item. History: While the cylindrical pocket microscope was invented by Benjamin Martin in ca. 1740. Later variations of this design, made of brass and equipped with delicate rack and pinion mechanism, became popular during the first half of the 19th century. These microscopes were marketed by many makers, were often unsigned and contained several objectives, forceps, bull’s eye lenses, live boxes and ivory or bone prepared slides. Compactly packed in their mahogany boxes, these instruments were portable and could ... morebe easily taken to the field. The small“drum microscopes” made later in France and Germany, were less elaborate and cheaper variations of this general style. In continental Europe. This design later developed through transitional phases into the continental microscope. Description: The microscope is lacking the typical case and accessories. But cosmetically it is in reasonable condition and the optics function well. There are the following condition issues(please see the photos) A) The mirror is unclear, it seems that the silver coating is partly detached from the glass(but it is atill complete) B) The rack and pinion focusing mechanism is missing some teeth at the lower part(see photo) References: Identical microscopes can be seen here: Museum of the History of Science Oxford: inv. 26896; 43758; 81690; 46248; 36754; 99822; Museum Boerhaave inventory no.

Drum Microscope for Student Use Made in 1900. In Excellent Condition and Working Order. Original Case This drum microscope is a piece made in 1900 that has survived to our days in perfect condition and working order. It is a beautiful item. Made completely of polished brass and stored in its original mahogany case. This microscope was designed for student or travelling use and is perfect to carry and use it in class due to its small size and compact design. The instrument is composed of two parts that can be detached and comfortably stored into the case, being a charming and very attractive article. The drum microscope is a portable instrument invented by English optician Benjamin Martin in the middle of the 18th century. During those years these devices were very popular for field work. Teaching, studying and even as toys for kids. This ... moreparticular instrument shows the design developed by Noel Lerebours, a French optician whose drum microscope became highly successful. In the middle of the 19th century drum microscope became obsolete with the arrival of new models manufactured by companies such as Leitz Wetlzar and Zeiss Jenna. As stated before. This microscope shows the classic design of this kind of devices. Its simplicity and functionality are quite remarkable. It works perfectly and keeps all its original component parts in great condition. The microscope has a lens to concentrate and focus the light on the samples, and two lenses stored in their corresponding compartments. It also comes with a pair of thongs to manipulate the sample plates. The case where the microscope is stored is in good condition; it is made of solid mahogany wood and boasts a beautiful deep veneer with different shades of red. The hinges that connect the box and the lid are original and so are the shutting hooks. This microscope will surely be the ideal piece to complete a good collection of scientific antiques. Measurements: Width: 1.7 in/4.5 cm. Height: 5.9 in/15 cm. I think I left nothing in the description but if I forgot something

Untitled Document Description This is an Oberhaeuser style French drum microscope made of brass. Originally manufactured for use in field hospitals from 1870 till 1910. Fully open it measures about 9 1/2" and closed it measures 7 5/8"L x 1 3/4" D. To provide fine focus there is a light tuning attached wheel mechanism found on the right side of the instrument under the plate stage(it is the coin looking dial) There are multiple sized openings on this dial to adjust the light source needed from pin point to a broader spectrum. This tuning wheel is what makes it a working Doctors field microscope. And not a simple student version. Also included is an extra wood encased objective lens. This“wooden” portable travel lens is period correct to have been invented by Benjamin Martin(who first made microscopes of cardboard. Wood, and ... moresometimes with leather in 1730-1750) This extra lens would have given the doctor a better look at any given tissue sample. It is in fair condition and shows signs of field use with surface scratches. For magnification move the body tube up or down within the brass sleeve. Once set up. A single brass milled head keeps it securely in place. The eyepiece and the objective lens are in fair condition. The magnifying lenses have some surface scratches. But no cracks. I do not find any makers makers on this microscope or the wood objective lens. In the base is a concave mirror that provides illumination. A single brass milled head controls the mirror. The mirror reflects nicely. But could use a good polishing. The microscope itself is in beautiful condition with what I would consider signs of normal use and a tarnished patina on the inner tube. These surface blemishes do not take away from the usefulness or desirability of the piece and most likely will disappear if professionally cleaned. This microscope comes in its original wood case and appears to be made of mahogany or rosewood. 8 1/4"L x 2 1/2" W x 2 1/4 H. The case has a sizable crack running nearly the length of the li

Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE HE Offered for auction is a nice case-mounted"drum" microscope. Dating to ca. 1860. This is a nice example of a higher quality case-mounted drum microscope. With original case. The microscope is unsigned, but it was made in the style introduced by the renowned Prussian microscope maker(working in Paris) George Oberhauser, and later produced also by his partner and husband to his daughter Dr. Edmund Hartnack. It has a wide screw on the bottom which screws into the top of the mahogany case. Coarse focus is by push-pull and fine focus by screw tilting the right side of the stage. There is a three-button objective. The microscope has a draw tube. This is the prototype of a design that developed into the continental microscope of the later 19th century. By the design. Style, case thread type, quality ... moreand parallels, this unsigned microscope is almost undoubtedly produced by the Oberhauser-Hartnack workshop. Some history of this type of microscopes: Johann Georg Oberhaeuser(1798-1868) was born in Ansbach in Middle Franconia. Germany. Oberhaeuser attended high school in his hometown with the intent of becoming an engineer. However, due to the premature death of his father in 1812, he was forced to become an apprentice mechanic at the University in Wurzburg in order to support himself. After his teacher died in 1816, Oberhaeuser moved to Paris, France where he became a mechanic’s assistant. While in Paris, he came in contact with the opticians Trecourt and Bouquet. In 1830 they started a three-way partnership at 19 Place Dauphine, Paris. In 1835 Bouquet departed, leaving Oberhaeuser and Trecourt to do business together. They introduced this new type of case-mounted"drum" microscope in 1837 and very quickly they earned a good reputation for producing affordable and solid instruments with excellent achromatic lenses. In 1854, Oberhaeuser invited Edmund Hartnack(1826– 1891) to work as an apprentice in his his workshop. By the year 1857, Hartnack had become a full pa

His 1848 microscope which can be found on Ebay. Is functionally similar to the instrument being offered, though not as sophisticated as far as features, and operational knob control.
