The Achromatic Microscope.
A Treatise on the Construction, Proper use and Capabilities of Smith,
Beck and Beck's Achromatic Microscope.
By Richard Beck.
1865

It is a rare description and detailed instruction on the use of an advanced design achromatic microscope and numerous special accessories.

He begins with a description: “A Compound Achromatic Microscope consists essentially of two parts,
an object-glass and an eyepiece – so called because they are respectively near the object and the eye when the instrument is in use.

He then describes each part individually: Microscope Stands, The Stage, The Mirror, The Substage, Revolving and Folding Bases, The Eyepiece, The Object-glasses,
The "Universal Screw", and The 1/20th Object-Glass.

Beck goes on to describe the proper operation of the microscope, beginning with the management of light.

He then explains the methods of illumination from above - how to use the slide condensing lenses, the slide silver reflector,
the Lieberkuhns, forceps, and the opaque disk-revolver.

Beck continues by providing specific instructions on viewing test object such as the splinter of a Lucifer match,
the Podura-scale, the tarsus of a spider, the feather of a pigeon, and the Arachnoidiscus Japonicus.

Another section of the book discusses polarized light as applied to the microscope.

Sundry apparatus is also described, including live-boxes and troughs, the screw live-box, lever compressors,
Wenham's compressor, reversible compressors, the frog plate, the camera lucida, micrometers,
Quekett's indicator, double and quadruple nosepieces, Leeson's goniometer,
Maltwood's finder, and microscope lamps and tables.

In addition, Beck also discusses the third class microscope for students, the universal microscopes, and single microscopes and magnifiers.

Finally, he describes various instruments used in preparing objects, instruments and materials used in mounting objects, and microscopic cabinets.

This classic text is the most complete and detailed description of the component parts and functions of a "modern" compound microscope.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
