Description

"A large drum microscope with two rack and pinion sets, one for coarse focus and one for varying tube length. The latter must be the "Grossissement variable." The lead-filled base has a square opening for illuminating the flat/concave substage mirror rotatable only about a horizontal axis. The stage and upper parts of the stand can be rotated on the base. A vertical pillar holds an arm and the tubes, but there is no fine focus provided." - Harvard University
