Description
Binocular microscope with attachments in a carrying case; this includes: (a) a heavy horseshoe base type microscope with a round light-reflecting mirror at the bottom; the slide base above this is square in shape and has two round knobs on the right side that move the base from side to side or up and down; the microscope has a heavy curved back, made for easy grasping, with two round adjustment knobs on each side; above the microscope slide base is a round revolving disk with four different cylindrical objectives; the topmost part of the microscope has two hollow cylindrical pieces into which fit eyepieces, (b,c); both eyepieces are made of a short piece of hollow cylindrical metal with glass set into the top and bottom; the left side of the inside of the carrying case has small wooden attachments set into it; the top left corner has an objective holder; this is rectangular in shape, with a closed bottom, front and back and open sides; the top has 6 open round holes that fit objective cases; there are three objective cases; each is made of hollow cylindrical metal with closed sides and bottom and a threaded top; onto each top fits a round cap that has threading on the insides; these include a case for a 3 objective (e) and lid (f), a case for a 4 objective (g) and lid (h), and a case for a 6a objective (i) and lid (j); on the left side of the case, below the objective holder, is a wooden eyepiece holder (k); this also is rectangular in shape, with a closed bottom, front and back and open sides; the top has 6 open round holes that fit eyepieces; there are two eyepieces (l,m); both are made of a short piece of hollow cylindrical metal with glass set into the top and bottom; on the left of the case, below the eyepiece holder, is a small storage box (n), with a sliding lid (o); the box is made of rectangular-shaped wood, with a closed bottom and four sides, and an open top which has a slot carved in, just near the upper edges; the lid is also of rectangular-shaped wood and fits into the slots of the box, which contains a round, flat piece of glass and a cylindrical piece of metal with horizontal grooves cut into it and a smaller cylindrical piece at one end; the function of these two pieces is unknown, so neither were given numbers; the upper side of the case has two attached brown velvet-lined wooden pieces that are flat on the outer sides and rounded and dark-brown velvet-lined on the inside; these were designed to hold an attachment which is now missing; the centre of the left side of the case has a metal bracket attached which holds a lens attachment (p); this attachment is made of cylindrical hollow metal, open at both ends, with one end being made of brass and tapered; the microscope comes with a printed paper instruction sheet (q) on the use of oil immersion lenses; this consists of a piece of printed paper, folded in half, then folded in half again; there is also a magnification table (r), which is printed on heavy paper and attached on the inside of the case door; the outside of the front door on the carrying case has a metal lock and key (s); the key is made of flat metal, with a heart-shaped opening at the handle and a notched working end; the carrying case (t) is rectangular in shape, with finger joints at the top and bottom side edges; the top, bottom, sides and back are closed; the front has a door hinged on the right side with two metal hinges and a metal lock and key at the left side; the top of the case has an attached metal handle which is semicircular with rounded knobs where it attaches to the top of the case.
