Description

An excellent and quite unusual example of the Alfred Cornu-type high precision stage micromemeter signed by Duboscq and Pellin for the measurement of photographic prints and in particular for the measurement of the line distance in spectroscopic photographs of the ultraviolet spectrum.

“Micromètre à chariot de M. Cornu, pour la mesure des épreuves photographiques et en particulier pour la mesure de la distance des raies dans les photographies spectroscopiques du spectre ultra-violet.

Cet appareil se place et se fixe sur la platine de divers microscopes, une vis micromètrique au 1/2 millimètre, actionnée par un tambour divisé en 100 parties, permet d’évaluer le 1/200 de millimètre.” (in the Duboscq-Pellin catalogue from 1889)

 

This is the very rare large modèle for measuring 90 millimeters.

Preserved in its orignal case.
