As an archaeologist researching the material culture of the distant past and using the microscope as a major research tool, for more than two decades I have collected microscopes from the first 300 years of existence of this amazing tool and researched the cultural context of their use.

Needless to say, I would love to send photos, information and bibliographic references, and discuss the sale details of the items offered here for sale.
