The Microscope originally published in the depression era by R J Beck. From understanding the parts of a modern microscope and their functions and names - we are taken on a head-long journey down the technical and practical aspects of microscope design, engineering, optics, operations, options, methods of use, and applications. Done with clarity and good illustrations / drawings.

We learn about focal length, contrast, phasing, collaminating, condensers, aperture, and how to make achromatic lenses and systems. Mechanical Stages, cover slips, specimen handling and preparation and more Object glasses, oil immersion objective lenses and how to use them So much more.

If you use a microscope - ever - this book is a gem you should read.

Never mind if you have the latest zeiss computerized instrument with pattern
recognition software - this is still a worthy read, and you will end up knowing how
to make better use of the tool you have in a microscope, whether it is the plastic
kids toy or the state of the art optical tool in a research lab.

140 plus pages chock full of pithy content, no fluff here.
Microscopes for metrology, for petrology, for microbiology, for micro-botony, for
metalurgy, etc. etc. etc. are all covered at least briefly.

Even a nice summary bit on the joys of microscopy as a hobby or recreation for your
family or yourself.

Drawing tables, how to collaminate the microscope, micro-photography, test patterns
and their use.

I struggled with a microscope I was given as a budding future doc/ pathologist /
microbiologist and if I had read this book back then, hundreds of hours of
frustration could have been saved.


I wish I had had it, now you can have it.

 

Contents:

Preface

This book is intended as a guide to the use of the microscope. The correct use of the instrument follows directly from a knowledge of the functions of the different parts. It has therefore been found best to develop the method of manipulation in the course of the descriptions of the component protions. Such particulars as are given of the principles of its optical construction are of the simplest character, and their comprehension requires no optical knowledge. Certain theoretical matters are stated in this book, but are not explained. Some of the descriptions may appear to be extremely elementary to experienced microsocpist, but it is hoped that even they may find useful matter which is not available in the ordinary text-books.

Chapter I
A simple description of the microscope

Chapter II
Illuninating apparatus and sources of illumination

Chapter III
Apparatus for holding specimens

Chapter IV
Sundry Apparatus

Chapter V
Object glasses and eyepiece

Chapter VI
The microscope stand

Chapter VII
The microscope as a recreation

Many great books of skills and technology were abandoned or forgotten, and they languished on
the shelves of factories, in boxes in attics, and in garages and libraries.

Now you can again delight and learn from them. This is a great drafting and drawing book,
excellent instruction, great drawings to learn from, ideal for someone starting out or
someone wanting to see what good standards used to be, and still are.

Enjoy! oh, and a pitch for the other publications we have,  we are trying to selectively
resurrect the best and most useful tomes of the past, take a look at ebay store
