  New Constructions.

Since issueing our last catalogue, a number of new apparatus and
accessories have been added. The following are the more important ones:

1. A completely =new stand "A"= with extra fine micrometerscrew
transmitting its movement directly to the tube. The stand is of elegant
appearance and large dimensions, making it especially well adapted for
work in photo-micrography.

2. =Stand I= is now fitted out with the new special fine adjustment (each
division {1/1000} mm).

3. =Stand II= with round centering stage.

4. =Stand IV= is replaced by a model of larger size.

5. =Photo-micrographic apparatus= for use in horizontal and vertical
position, having joint for inclination, large size bellows and

6. =Large projection-apparatus= for electric lamp of 30 Ampère with triple
collecting lens of 210 mm aperture.

7. =Objective 1 a= with adjustable mounting and changeable magnification.
It is an excellent objective of low power for general purposes, having a
comparatively short working distance.

8. =Objective 1 b= with changeable magnification of lowest power, as far
down as two diameters. It serves for drawing extended sections and

9. =Saccharimeter after Mitcherlich= improved form.

10. =Trichinoscope=, projection-apparatus of strong and simple


Our American Branch house in New-York under the management of Mr. Wm.
Krafft has now been established for over 10 years. This period has
witnessed a gradual development of our business in the United States,
making it necessary to establish some years ago a Western Branch in
Chicago of which Mr. R. Gibson has charge.

The cordial reception our firm received has been most gratifying and we
take this opportunity to thank our many patrons for their kind

It is our aim to co-operate with the scientists and construct new
apparatus to meet their needs or improve others wherever this is

The foregoing list of additions and improvements made since issueing our
last catalogue is proof that we spare no time nor labor to hold pace
with the increased wants of modern times.

We have now manufactured and sold over 71000 compound microscopes and
31000 oil immersion objectives, a large number of which are used in the
laboratories of Universities, Colleges, and other Educational
Institutions of the United States.

We are prepared at New-York and Chicago to repair our instruments or
make alterations at short notice and at lowest prices. The optical part
of a microscope should invariably be sent to the maker, as he is best in
a position to repair same and has an added interest to bring a lens back
to its original quality or even improve it.

Microscopes, bacteriological apparatus and all other scientific
instruments or preparations expressly imported for use in educational
institutions are exempt from duty.

  =Objectives and Eye-pieces.=

In the manufacture of our objectives only such glass is employed as has
been subjected to the most rigid scientific tests. By these the exact
index of refraction and the exact degree of dispersion of the glass are
determined, and with these data available it is possible to very
perfectly correct both spherical and chromatic aberrations while still
making use of wide angular apertures in the objectives.

The precise mathematical calculation, combined with accurate
systematical working and testing methods, make it possible for us to
guarantee our objectives to be all of equal and excellent quality.

Every objective before leaving our hands, is subjected to the most
careful test, and only such lenses as are of the highest grade, are sent

For the past seventeen years we have used glasses manufactured by Schott
& Co. of Jena. This glass has many points to recommend it for the
construction of optical instruments, and only such kinds are employed by
us, which have for many years been thoroughly tested as to their

Our lenses are therefore absolutely permanent. Objectives of the earlier
type which have become cloudy, we shall gladly repair.


The three illustrations given above afford an idea of the plan of
construction of our achromatic objectives.

The first figure represents the plan of our low power objectives, and it
will be noted that they consist of two doublets, or triplets each
carefully corrected.

The central figure shows the construction of our high power dry
objectives. A hemispherical front lens is combined with two doublets or
sometimes triplets. The front lens is the chief magnifier of the
combination, while the other lenses serve to correct the various

The Oil-immersion, represented by the last illustration consists of a
front lens, hemispherical, behind which is a meniscus, which is in turn
followed by a doublet and a triplet, these latter acting as the
correcting lenses of the combination.

We manufacture both =Achromatic= and =Apochromatic objectives=. They differ
in that the glasses made use of in the apochromatics and the manner in
which they are combined permit a more perfect correction of chromatic
aberration. This advantage is not gained without a certain sacrifice of
simplicity in construction; by avoiding the use of flint glass having a
high refractive index and substituting materials to take the place of
crownglass. The apochromatics as a matter of fact do resolve the fine
markings of test objects (butterfly scales and diatomes) somewhat more
clearly than the achromatics, but the difference is slight and in
ordinary stained microscope preparations is hardly detectable.

The correction of both achromatics and apochromatics is complete. The
ordinary Huyghenian eye-pieces are consequently well adapted for use
with the objectives of either construction. Only with the highest powers
is it desirable to make use of the so-called "compensation" eye-pieces.

The achromatics and Huyghenian eye-pieces are also well adapted to the
requirements of photomicrography, special objectives being unnecessary
for this purpose. This statement is substantiated by the excellent
results obtained with our achromatic objectives, as shown in the
photomicrographs accompanying our brochure on
Photomicrography:--"Anleitung zur Mikrophotographie".

In making use of the higher power objectives--from No. 5 on--it should
be remembered, that the lenses are corrected for cover glasses of 0,17
mm in thickness and for a microscope tube-length of 170 mm. When using
the oil-immersion objectives it is particularly desirable, that this
exact tube length should be employed. With a view to facilitate the
adjustment of the tube-length the draw tubes of all our larger stands
are graduated in millimeters, the scale indicating the exact length of
the microscope tube in any given position of the draw tube. In this
connection it should be remembered, that the width of the collar of the
nose-pieces is 15 millimeters, and that consequently, when a nose-piece
is attached to the tube the reading of the draw tube scale should be 155
mm instead of 170 when the adjustment is proper.

[Illustration: Figure comparative merits of the dry and immersion

The above sketch may serve to make clear the advantages of the immersion
objectives over those of the dry series. It is intended to represent
diagrammatically a section through a cover-glass and the front lens of
an objective, one half of the figure representing the conditions present
in the case of the Oil-immersion, the other those which are present in
the dry objectives. It will be noticed that by the interposition of a
drop of oil of the same index of refraction as the glass between the
cover-glass and the objective the refraction which occurs in the dry
system when the light leaves the upper surface of the cover-glass is
done away with. Since this second refraction is attended with much loss
of light it must be evident, that in the immersion system a much greater
quantity of light enters the objective than is possible, other things
being equal, in objectives of the dry system.

If we let _u_ represent one half the angular aperture of an objective,
represented in the diagram by _D'BN_ in the case of the immersion, and
_n_ the index of refraction of the medium interposed between the
cover-glass and the objective we have in the formula _n_ sin. _u_ a
mathematical expression of the optic power of the various systems of
lenses, or in other words for what is designated the numerical aperture.

The following table gives the numerical apertures of objectives of the
various systems and of various angular apertures. In the dry system
_n._, representing the index of refraction of air is taken as 1.00; in
the immersion systems _n_ equals 1.33 for water, 1.52 for cedar oil and
1.66 for monobromnaphthalin. A glance at the table will suffice to show
the great advantage which the immersion objectives have over those of
the dry series.

[Illustration: Double revolving Eye-piece.]

Until very recently we have manufactured no arrangement for changing
oculars on the microscope. This was due in part to the fact that there
was no great demand for such an accessory and in part to the clumsiness
of all those revolving eye-pieces which changed the entire ocular. The
latter of these difficulties has been overcome in our present revolving
eye-piece by such an adjustment of the collecting or lower lens of the
eye-piece that it may remain permanently in position, the eye lens of
the combination alone moving in the revolver. So accurate is the
construction of the revolver and so carefully are the lenses adjusted
that the eye-pieces may be changed while a specimen is in focus on the
microscope stage without a readjustment of the focus.

The revolving eye-piece is also particularly well adapted to use as a
micrometer ocular, for when the eye lens is turned aside a micrometer
scale may be inserted and rests upon the diaphragm of the eye-piece.

For the past thirty years division of labor has been employed to the
utmost possible extent in the manufacture of our microscopes. This
principle has been applied to our machinery as well as to our workmen,
with the result that we have gradually accumulated a large plant of
special machinery of the most accurate construction, each machine
especially adapted to the manufacture of some particular part of our
microscopes. By this development of mechanical appliances for microscope
manufacture two ends have been attained:--The greatest accuracy and
uniformity of construction of our microscopes has been made possible,
while at the same time it has been possible to cheapen the cost of
manufacture. Instruments which are the product of delicate machinery
must always be more uniform, more accurate and should be less costly
than those manufactured by hand.

In the following remarks we refer more particularly to the larger
microscope stands of our manufacture and draw attention to those
parts which should be present in every well equipped microscope.

The elements of these microscopes are:

    1. =The foot and upright support with joint for inclination=,
    2. =The stage=,
    3. =The sub-stage, with condenser, iris diaphragm and mirror=,
    4. =The body with the adjustments=,
    5. =The tube, carrying eye-piece, nose-piece and objectives=.

1. =The foot and upright support= are solid and are of such weight and
shape as to permit inclination of the body of the microscope to a
horizontal position. The foot is horse-shoe shaped and is made to touch
the table at three points, thus insuring stability even on a surface
which is not entirely level. Inclination of the body of the microscope
is permitted by a joint in the upright, which joint may be fastened in
the larger stands by a set-screw operated by a lever. Stands Ia and IIb
are also made with the English foot. Abundant space is left under the
stage for the various attachments of the sub-stage.

2. =The stage= of Stands A, I, Ia and II is round, revolving and
centering. The centering arrangement consists of two small thumb-screws
so situated at the sides of the stage as to control motion of the stage
in all directions, thus to a limited extent serving the purpose of a
mechanical stage.

=The other microscope= stands have square immovable stages, sufficiently
large for general microscopic work. For the examination of very large
sections two instruments are manufactured: the _Nebelthau_ sliding
microscope (p. 50) and the stand after _Dölken_ (p. 52). The former is
for magnifications up to 120 diam, whereas the latter can be used with
any magnification.

3. =The sub-stage= carries a plane and concave mirror, the condenser and
the diaphragm for regulating the illumination of the object.

=The Condenser= is so adjusted as to concentrate the rays of light about 2
mm above its surface, which is the average thickness of the microscopic
slides, under an angle equal to the angular aperture of the highest
power objective, which is about 120°.

In the lower power objectives the angular aperture is to be reduced by
the iris diaphragm.

To focus the Condenser properly it is adjustable by rack and pinion
movement on Stands A, I, Ia, Ib, and by side screw on Stands II and IIa.

4. =The body= of the microscope carries the tube and is fitted with two
adjustments for focussing; a coarse adjustment and a fine adjustment.
The smooth working of these adjustments is one of the chief requirements
of a good microscope.

=The coarse adjustment= consists of rack and pinion and moves the tube of
the microscope in a vertical groove with the least possible friction.
The teeth of the rack and pinion are set obliquely to the axis of the
tube and are so adjusted that two teeth of each are always interlocked,
thus avoiding all possibility of slipping or loss of motion in the

[Illustration: Figure of the Micrometer-screw of the fine adjustment.]

=The fine adjustment= consists of a micrometer screw which moves the tube
and arm of the microscope supporting the coarse adjustment vertically
upon a triangular column. This column is virtually a continuation upward
of the upright support of the base of the microscope. Around the column
is a broad collar so accurately fitted that it moves smoothly upon it
with a minimum of friction and still without lateral motion, the
movement being controlled by means of a micrometer screw at the top of
the column. The head of this micrometer screw, a section of which is
shown in the accompanying figure, is milled and is graduated in such a
way as to indicate the exact degree of motion of the microscope tube
which is accomplished by turning the micrometer screw, each division of
the graduation corresponding to a motion of the tube through 1/100
millimeter, and a complete revolution of the screw corresponding to a
motion of the tube through ½ millimeter. The accuracy of this adjustment
and the smoothness of its motion must be conceded to be a triumph of
mechanical skill.

=Stands A.= and =I.= are fitted with a =new fine adjustment= device (one
division on the micrometer screw corresponding to 1/1000 mm.) which is
fully described on pages 25-26.

5. =The tube= of the microscope encloses a second tube, or draw-tube,
which latter carries the eye-piece, and is so graduated as to indicate
the exact length of tube in use at any time. The lower end of the tube
has a thread into which the various objectives or a nose-piece screw.
Tube and objectives are provided with the so-called "Society screw".

=The nose-piece= has now become an almost indispensable part of a working
microscope. It can, however, be used to best advantage only on such
stands as are provided with a coarse adjustment by rack and pinion.
Aside from the advantage derived from the rapid changing of objectives,
which it permits, it is so accurately made and centered as to materially
facilitate the focussing of the various objectives. It is only necessary
to focus with the fine adjustment to obtain a view of the same
microscope field which had been under observation before the change was

As it is necessary for this purpose that the objectives should be
accurately adjusted to the nose-piece, it is very desirable that in
ordering an instrument its nose-piece should be ordered at the same time
if one is to be used, as subsequent ordering may necessitate the return
of the stand and objectives to us.

=Stands A, I, Ia, Ib, II, IIa, IIb and III= are those which are best
suited to fine microscopical investigations. Among them the physician
and bacteriologist will find an instrument entirely suited to his
particular needs.

=Stand III= is now provided with rack and pinion adjustment.

=Stands IV and V= are small instruments, which serve nevertheless many
purposes where the more elaborate outfits are unnecessary. They make
excellent laboratory stands for elementary courses in microscopy.

In =Stands IV and V= the coarse adjustment is by means of sliding tube.
They are all provided with fine adjustment by micrometer screw.

=Stand VI= is provided with rack and pinion adjustment only. It has a
large stage, and is particularly intended for searching for trichinae
and for similar examinations where a very strong durable stand is
desired and where the use of high power objectives is unnecessary. It
may also be useful as an auxiliary stand for purposes of demonstration
in laboratories.

=Stands III, IV, V, VI= have no joint for inclining the body.

=Stands A, I, Ia, Ib, II, IIa, IIb, III, IV= have mahogany cases (provided
with a nickelled handle), in which the microscopes stand.

=Stands V and VI= are laid in mahogany boxes.

These cases are furnished with the microscopes without extra charge,
when a =complete outfit=, including oculars and objectives is purchased.

Object clamps and test objects accompany every microscope.

The objectives to Stands A, I, Ia, Ib, II, IIa, IIb are in brass boxes;
those for Stands III, IV, V and VI are in morocco cases.

  =Illuminating Apparatus.=

  =a. Illuminating Apparatus of Stands A and I.=

The apparatus includes the following parts:

    Cylinder iris diaphragm.
    Swing-out condenser.
    Diaphragm carrier with iris diaphragm.
    Plane and concave mirror.

The cylinder iris diaphragm comes into play when the condenser
is swung out of position. To do this the diaphragm carrier is
turned to the side as shown in the diagram, a small knob is
pressed, which liberates the condenser, and the latter is
swung out to the side.

The regulation of the cylinder iris diaphragm is accomplished
by means of a lever. Before the condenser is swung back into
position the cylinder iris should be opened to its fullest
extent. The lower iris diaphragm is for use in connection with
the condenser only. It is regulated by means of a small knob.
A horizontal rack and pinion arrangement permits oblique
illumination, and a vertical rack and pinion permits
adjustment of the whole sub-stage. By these means a most
perfect control of the illumination of the object is assured.
Ground or colored glass discs may be inserted above the iris
diaphragm if modification of the light is desired.             =$30.--=

_This illuminating apparatus may also be fitted to Stands Ia and Ib._

[Illustration: Abbe's Illuminating Apparatus for Stand A and I.

Swing-out Condenser.

Cylinder Iris Diaphragm.]

  =b. Illuminating Apparatus of Stands Ia and Ib= (p. 30, 32, 34).


The following are the parts of this apparatus:

    Cylinder diaphragm with 3 stops of different apertures.
    Diaphragm carrier with iris diaphragm.
    Plane and concave mirror.

To substitute the condenser for the cylinder diaphragm the
diaphragm carrier is turned to the side and the cylinder
diaphragm is drawn out of the sleeve which holds it in
position and into which the condenser readily fits. The
diaphragm carrier is then turned back into position and the
amount of light regulated by manipulating the knob controlling
the size of the iris. The whole sub-stage may be raised or
lowered in the optical axis by means of a rack and pinion, and
a similar arrangement permits lateral illumination by moving
the iris diaphragm in the horizontal plane.

Ground glass and colored plates may be inserted above the iris
diaphragm.                                                     =$24.--=

  =c. Illuminating Apparatus for Stand II and IIa= (p. 36 & 38).

The condenser and iris diaphragm form one piece, giving
central but no oblique illumination. The whole apparatus may
be raised and lowered in the optical axis by means of a screw.
The cylinder diaphragm may be inserted in place of the
condenser. A ring below the iris diaphragm permits the
insertion of glass discs for the purpose of modifying the
light.                                                         =$12.--=

  =d. Illuminating apparatus for Stand IIb= (p. 40).

The same as for II and IIa fitted in a fixed sleeve; without
the side-screw.                                                =$10.--=

  =e. Small Illuminating Apparatus.=

[Illustration: Small Illuminating Apparatus.]

The small illuminating apparatus consists of a somewhat
smaller condenser with iris diaphragm and can be adjusted to
the Stand IV, when it has the cylinder diaphragm.               =$8.--=

[Illustration: Cylinder iris diaphragm.]

A cylinder iris diaphragm can be furnished in place of the
ordinary cylinder diaphragm of Stand II, IIa and IIb at an
additional cost of                                              =$6.--=

[Illustration: Iris diaphragm fitted to stage of stand III.]

Stand III can be had with iris diaphragm fitted in stage, in
place of the wheel diaphragm (see page 43) Additional price     =$6.--=

=_Complete Microscope Outfits._=

The outfits comprised in the following pages are made up with achromatic
objectives, which suffice for all ordinary needs.

We are glad to supply any other combination of eye-pieces and objectives
which may be preferred. The price of each outfit may be readily computed
by adding together the cost of its various items.

Microscope =stands=, without objectives, will not be sold separately.

[Illustration: Stand A.--Universal Microscope.]

  =Stand "A".=

  Universal Microscope.

In the construction of our new stand "A" we have taken special care to
enlarge all the parts proportionately in order to secure strength and
stability, at the same time adding to the beauty of the instrument.

The upper pillar of the microscope is shaped in such a way as to form a
convenient handle; and to increase the free working space over the
stage, thereby allowing the examination of very large specimen and
culture plates. A specially constructed mechanical stage larger than No.
98 may be attached, which is adapted for slides up to 2×4 inches (50×100

The extra large dimensions of all the main parts of this microscope such
as the base and stage etc., allow that freedom of movement so desired in
a stand for photo-micrography.

Both the body tube and graduated draw tube are very wide and permit the
use of low power objectives to cover specimen of large extent; for the
same reason the opening in the stage is very wide but can be narrowed
down by a stop.

The most important innovation on the microscope is the new fine
adjustment device, which is unexcelled both in solidity of construction
and accuracy of movement, representing the highest attainment of the
designers and mechanics skill.

Sectional cuts of this unique arrangement are shown in illustration (p.

All that can be seen on the exterior are two small milled heads mounted
below and somewhat back of the two larger knobs controlling the rack and
pinion (coarse) adjustment of the microscope. The knob on the right side
is provided with a graduated drum _r_, indicating the movement of the
fine adjustment.

The two knobs with drum are mounted on an axle _a_, which in its central
portion is enlarged and provided with a worm gear. The latter in its
turn drives the gear wheel, _d_. A spiral spring pressing against one of
the journals into which the axle is mounted prevents any lost motion in
the worm gear. Mounted on the same shaft with the gear-wheel _d_, is a
heartshaped cam _f_. On this cam rests the steel roller _g_, fitted on
the support _k_, which in its turn carries the microscope tube. By its
weight and a spiral spring the latter presses on the cam _f_, and
effects a direct vertical movement.


The periphery of the heart shaped cam _f_, is exactly symmetrical and
mathematically correct. The distance traversed by its curved sides from
the lowest to the highest point and vice versa is 3 mm. There are cut 60
teeth in the entire periphery of the gear-wheel _d_; the number
corresponding to one side of the heart-shaped cam or 3 mm elevation, are
30 teeth, therefore 1 tooth means a movement of 3/30 mm or 0,1 mm.

This in turn requires one complete revolution of the axle _a_, the drum
of which is graduated into 100 parts. The value of each division on the
drum is therefore 0,1/100=0,001 mm.

This micrometer fine adjustment is exceedingly accurate and reliable,
and besides it has the following advantages;

By virtue of its unique construction the movement is continuous, there
is absolutely no limit to the motion of the micrometer screw, which may
be turned forward or backward as the work requires.

This movement extends in exact ratio to the revolution of the cam for a
distance of 3 mm. As another advantage we may mention, that it is almost
impossible to break the coverglass of the specimen with this fine

Should the objective come in contact with the coverglass and assuming
the knob is turned still further then the tube, which is of aluminium
and very light would simply rest on the specimen, without breaking the
coverglass, as the latter will easily stand the small pressure of the
tube and the fine spiral spring.

[Illustration: Nebelthau's Sliding Microscope.]

  =Nebelthau's Sliding Microscope.=

  (Cf. Zeitschrift für wissenschaftliche Mikroskopie, XIII, 1896.)

 31. The sliding microscope is an instrument by means of
     which very large microscope sections, as, for example,
     large sections of the brain, can be systematically
     examined. It is also of service in looking over plate
     cultures of bacteria.

     The microscope is carried on a heavy beam supported
     by two stout pillars under which the stage
     moves. The various movements are accomplished by
     motion of the microscope on a lateral track upon
     its support and by motion of the stage on a similar
     track at right angles to the first. The motion of the
     microscope is by means of a screw, that of the stage
     by double rack and pinion. The extent of the movements
     is indicated in each case by a scale, thus
     permitting the systematic examination of the entire

     The stage consists of a glass plate, measuring
     16×20 cm, which is carried in a frame supported on
     four columns. The tracks permit a motion of the
     microscope of 18 cm and of the stage of 13,5 cm. A
     mirror under the stage affords ample illumination.

     The microscope tube is so arranged that it can be
     easily removed from the stand and a simple lens substituted
     for it. The coarse adjustment of the microscope
     is by rack and pinion. A screw above the objective
     serves for fine adjustment. The price of this sliding
     microscope, without objectives or oculars, but with a
     lens holder and simple lens magnifying eight diameters
     is                                                         =80.--=

This instrument (in size like the Ib.) combines all the essential
features of a large laboratory microscope with a folding stand. It will
be found invaluable on scientific expeditions, for research work etc.

When lifted out of the case, spread the two parts forming the base,
which are then held by a spring-catch. After raising the tube, turn the
stage around and tighten it by means of a lever. It is supplied with
large Abbe condenser and Iris diaphragm adjustable by side screw. Coarse
adjustment by rack and pinion, fine adjustment by micrometer-screw.
Graduated draw-tube. The stand has joint for inclination.

[Illustration: Horizontal-Microscope.]

  36. =Horizontal Microscope.= This instrument consists of
      a microscope tube placed horizontally on a long
      extensible column, supported in turn by a tripod base
      provided with levelling screws and a round spirit level.
      The extension of the upright supporting column is
      accomplished by two sliding motions, the lower,
      controlled by a set screw only, being intended for
      coarser adjustments, the upper, controlled by rack and
      pinion, for finer adjustments. A millimeter scale and a
      vernier serve to indicate the degrees of the various
      motions, so that vertical motion of the microscope tube
      to the extent of 1/10 mm may be accomplished.

      The microscope tube carries a spirit level and revolves
      upon a horizontal disc. The objective, consisting of two
      separable doublets, permits three degrees of
      magnification of 5, 9 and 48 cm focal distance
      respectively. A rack and pinion adjustment serves as
      adjustment of the microscope tube. A micrometer, 1 cm
      long and divided into 100, in the diaphragm of the
      ocular still further increases the availability of the
      instrument for making fine and accurate measurements.

      The instrument serves as a useful aid in many physical
      and physiological investigations.

  =Microscopes for Mineralogical Research.=

We construct two Microscopes for mineralogical investigations. Both are
adapted for determining the axes of elasticity and for the
differentiation of isotropic and anisotropic bodies. Stand I alone is
adapted for determining the optical axes and their angles.

Only such objectives, condensers and oculars are available for
mineralogical examinations as have been shown after careful examination
in polarized light to be free from polarization.

[Illustration: Mineralogical Stand I.]

  =Mineralogical Stand I.=

  37. This microscope corresponds in its dimensions to
      Stand Ia as described on page 31. Coarse adjustment by
      rack and pinion, fine adjustment by micrometer-screw,
      the milled head of which has 50 divisions, each
      representing a motion of the objective of 1/100 mm. The
      condenser, iris-diaphragm and polarizer can be raised
      and lowered by rack and pinion. A triple condenser
      facilitates the observation of the axial lines in the
      microscope. It is so arranged as to be easily replaced
      by a simple diaphragm-carrier. By means of a collar
      attached to the end of the tube the objective is brought
      into coincidence with the centre of the revolving stage.
      This revolving stage is divided into 360 degrees and
      fitted with a vernier and index. Two scales on the
      stage, at right angles to each other, permit accurate
      location of specimens. The Nicol prism, which serves as
      a polarizer, can, after turning the iris-diaphragm
      aside, be drawn out from under the latter. The zero
      position of the Nicol prism is indicated by a line, as
      well as the angles 90, 180, 270°. The analyser is
      mounted in metal and is firmly fixed above the eye-
      piece. The analyser rotates on a disc graduated to 360
      deg. The front of the tube has a movable window which
      provides access to the inner tube. In the latter is an
      opening for the introduction of a Bertrand lens. This
      lens serves the purpose of magnifying the interference
      figures produced by the converging rays of polarized
      light. This lens and the eye-piece can be raised or
      lowered by rack and pinion. In the analyzer is a slide
      for the insertion of gypsum and quartz plates at an
      angle of 45 degrees.

      In many investigations it is advisable to employ an
      analyzer introduced laterally into the tube, instead of
      the one mentioned above.

      The following parts are supplied to complete the outfit:
        Triple nose-piece.

        Eye-piece 0, with Bertrand's quartered quartz plate.

        Eye-piece I with cross-lines, Brezina's Calcspath-plate,
        cleft perpendicularly to its axis, made to fit over
        eye-piece I, Klein's gypsum and quartz plates for
        insertion in the opening over the objective.

      The stage is revolving and graduated on the edge into
      360 degrees. A pointer indicates its position.

      The polarizer has stop at zeropoint and also marks at 90°,
      180° and 270°. It is held in a spring-sleeve and the
      substage can be raised and lowered by lateral screw, or
      may be swung to one side. The condenser is mounted in
      separate arm above the polarizer and swings out of the
      optical axis by means of a lever, if parallel instead of
      convergent rays are desired.

      The analyzer fits into an opening of the tube above the
      objectives and can be instantly thrown in or out of the
      optical axis. There is a slot below the analyzer for the

[Illustration: Dissecting microscope with erected image after R.

=The Dissecting microscope with erected image according to Prof. R.
Pfeiffer= has been constructed in such a way that all parts extending on
both sides can be folded or turned, so that the instrument fits in a
very small case.

The base consists of two parts which may be folded. The stage can be
brought in a position vertical to the optical axis and the metal hand
rests laid on top of the stage. They are connected with the latter by
joints. The mirror can also be turned and put parallel to the pillar.

A round glassplate is set in the stage, below which is an iris diaphragm
to properly regulate the illumination.

The adjustment is by rack and pinion.

Two rightangle prisms are mounted inside the tube in such a manner that
the image obtained by the objective is reflected into the eye-piece and
appears erected.

The eye-piece is of the Ramsden form. Three objectives of different
magnifying power with specially long working-distances have been
constructed Nos. 1, 2, 3.

      The following table shows the magnification of the
      objectives in connection with the eye-piece.

      Both tubes are moveable on a joint and are adjustable to
      various distances between the observers eyes. The
      distance of the eye from the preparation is about 250
      millimetres; the field of vision is large and flat; the
      magnification, four diameters; lenses are adjustable to
      either vertical or horizontal position and may be raised
      and lowered on the vertical support, thumb-screws fixing
      them in the desired position. A rack and pinion serves
      as fine adjustment                                        =24.--=

      in any desired position by means of the thumb-screw M.
      The position of the bright and dark lines of the
      spectrum and their respective wave lengths are
      ascertained by means of a scale. The flat drum A, the
      interior of which is shown in section, contains the slit
      and the comparison prism. The slit is regulated by the
      screws F and H. The lever T moves the comparison prism
      across one half of the slit. The cylinder Q above the
      eye-piece contains the Amici prism. At the point N of
      the horizontal tube RN is the micrometer scale,
      illuminated by the mirror O. After raising the spring-
      catch L the upper part of the spectroscope may be turned
      round the pivot K, thus allowing of the adjustment of
      the eye-piece                                             =66.--=

      plane coverglass and two pipettes for mixing the blood
      and saline solution used in the examinations. One of
      these pipettes, for estimating the number of red
      corpuscles is so graduated as to permit dilution of the
      blood 100 or 200 times as required; the other, for
      counting the white corpuscles (leucocytes), is graduated
      for dilution of the blood 10 or 20 times.

      The volume contents of the pipettes are most carefully
      determined and the depth of the cell is established by
      accurate micrometric measurement, thus permitting very
      exact observations by means of this instrument.

[Illustration: Screw Micrometer Eye-piece.]

  83. =Screw-micrometer eye-piece= for accurate
      measurement of large objects. Between the eye lens and
      the collecting lens of a Huyghenian ocular there is a
      millimeter scale etched on glass, above which is a
      moveable indicator whose position is controlled by a
      micrometer screw to which a graduated drum is attached.
      The value of each graduation on the drum (about 1/20 of
      the micrometer value of the objective) must be
      determined for each combination of ocular and objective
      by means of the stage micrometer. The eye lens of the
      ocular is moveable to permit accurate focus upon the
      scale. The apparatus slips into the tube of the
      microscope like any ordinary eye-piece and is fixed in
      position by a thumb-screw at the side                     =20.--=

  =Drawing Apparatus.=

      The two following =drawing eye-pieces= Nos. 92 and 93,
      have quickly found favor among those having frequent
      occasion to make drawings from microscopic preparations
      and are now largely used in educational institutions as
      an aid to students in the study of their specimens. In
      both eye-pieces the prism is so adjusted as to
      accomplish total reflection of the image, thus doing
      away with loss of light and with secondary reflections,
      such disturbing features of those forms of drawing
      apparatus of which a mirror forms an essential part.


  92. This =drawing eye-piece= is employed with the stand
      in the vertical position. The reflected image lies at
      the side of the microscope, the rays passing off at an
      acute angle from the reflecting prism near the top of
      the eye-piece. The eye-piece slips into the tube of the
      microscope like any ordinary eye-piece and is held in
      position by a thumb-screw. The drawing field is at once
      visible without further adjustment, and the picture is
      clear and sharp. The brightness of the drawing field may
      be regulated by smoked glass plates mounted in two
      moveable metal arms                                        =8.--=

[Illustration: Drawing eye-piece for drawing with inclined stand.]

  93. This =drawing eye-piece= is similar in construction
      to that just described, but is so arranged as to throw
      the image vertically downwards behind the microscope
      when the latter is inclined at an angle of 45 degrees.
      In this case also the picture reflected is clear and
      sharp, devoid of all disturbing secondary images. As the
      image is reflected vertically downwards upon the table,
      no special drawing stand is necessary as there is no
      distortion of the picture. The intensity of the light
      may be modified by smoked glass plates mounted in two
      moveable metal arms                                       =10.--=

      For a description of these drawing eye-pieces and of the
      principles involved in their construction reference may
      be had to the Zeitschrift für wissenschaftliche
      Mikroskopie, XII, 1895.

[Illustration: Abbe's Drawing Apparatus.]

  94. In =Abbe's Drawing Apparatus= the drawing field is
      reflected by a mirror at the side of the instrument and
      by a prism which fits over the eye-piece of the
      microscope. The prism is supported on a vertical hinge
      so that it may be readily turned out of the axis of the
      microscope without disconnecting the whole apparatus
      from the stand. It is shown turned to the side in the
      figure. A cylindrical cap accompanies the apparatus
      which fits over the prism holder and has six lateral
      windows in which are smoked glasses of various
      intensity, serving to regulate the lightness of the
      reflected drawing field                                   =12.--=

[Illustration: Drawing Board No. 95. Drawing Board after Giesenhagen.]

      The =Drawing boards= serve two purposes. They afford a
      smooth plane surface for the drawing paper and they are
      so arranged that they may be inclined at such an angle
      as to receive the rays of the reflected image at right
      angle to their surface, thus doing away with any
      distortion of the image on the paper.

  95. This =drawing board= is especially adapted for use
      with drawing eye-piece No. 92. When in the position
      indicated in the figure its drawing surface forms an
      angle of 12° to the horizontal                             =2.--=

  96. In =Giesenhagen's drawing board= the drawing surface
      may be adjusted at various angles and may be raised and
      lowered                                                    =4.--=

  97. The =drawing apparatus= after v. Tubeuf serves for
      drawing objects from nature. By means of a prism mounted
      in a metal box, the object is reflected into the eye in
      such a manner that its image appears erected on the
      drawing surface. This is quite an advantage when drawing
      from nature but is unimportant when using a drawing
      apparatus on the microscope. Two smoked glasses mounted
      in moveable metal arms serve to moderate the intensity
      of the light. On the side of the prism nearest the eye
      is a small wheel diaphragm attached to regulate the size
      of the opening. The apparatus is mounted on a heavy
      nickel-plated stand with vertical and lateral
      adjustments controlled by thumb-screws                    =12.--=

  =Mechanical Stages.=

[Illustration: Mechanical stage No. 98.]

  98. =Mechanical stage= adapted to Stands I, Ia and Ib.
      The stage is readily attached to the microscope by means
      of a small screw, _C_, which screws into a thread in the
      microscope just behind its stage, and binds the
      mechanical stage firmly in position and always in the
      same position. It may be again removed by simply
      unscrewing this set screw.

      The movements of the stage are at right angles to one
      another, are accomplished by carefully constructed rack
      and pinion adjustments and the exact position of each
      adjustment is indicated by vernier scales. The extent of
      the lateral movement is 50 mm; that of the other 30 mm.

      This stage permits the careful and systematic
      examination of large specimens and its construction is
      so perfect that by means of the vernier scales the most
      minute objects may be readily replaced in the field of
      vision, even after removal and readjustment of the
      stage, provided only that their location when in the
      field of vision as indicated by the scales had been
      noted                                                     =28.--=

 100. =Mechanical Stage No. 100.= When a mechanical stage
      is ordered subsequently to a microscope outfit and under
      such circumstances that its correct adjustment to the
      stand by a skillful mechanic is impossible we advise the
      purchase of this more readily adjusted mechanical stage,
      which may readily be attached to Stands I, Ia, Ib, IIa
      and IIb by means of a thumb-screw. It is as carefully
      constructed as Mechanical Stage No. 98 and serves the
      same purpose in every particular                          =28.--=

      conducted to the central part of the stage and the
      object. The apparatus is also provided with a condenser,
      which affords illumination sufficient for the use of
      high power objectives, and with a thermometer indicating
      the exact temperature of the centre of the stage, which
      may be carried as high as 100° C.                         =12.--=

  =Photo-micrographic Apparatus.=

[Illustration: Photo-micrographic Apparatus No. 105.]

The method of employing this apparatus and the general technique of
photo-micrography are treated of in a separate pamphlet containing also
four photo-micrographs taken with this apparatus.

This little work is furnished with each apparatus.

 105. =The Photo-micrographic Apparatus= consists of a
      heavy iron foot supporting a stout column in which
      another iron support moves vertically. This latter holds
      the camera and may be firmly fixed at any height by
      means of a thumb-screw. This permits the accurate
      adjustment of the camera to microscope stands of various
      sizes. The length of the camera is also adjustable by
      means of a thumb-screw sliding in the upright support.
      Regulation of the field of the camera is accomplished by
      a revolving disc diaphragm with openings of five
      different sizes situated in the neck of the camera. Two
      simple plate-holders for plates 9×12 and 13×18 cm are
      supplied with each camera, as are also a ground glass
      plate and clear glass plate in the frame of the camera
      serve to catch the picture in the plane of the
      photographic plate, and a simple lens aids in obtaining
      a correct focus of the image. A white glass plate,
      mounted on a stand is of use in diffusing direct
      sunlight so as to make it available for photographic
      purposes, and three discs of yellow, blue and green
      glass are provided which may be inserted over the iris-
      diaphragm of the condenser when colored light is

      It is of great advantage to interpose an illuminating
      lens between the source of light and the mirror, thereby
      condensing the light-rays, giving a uniform illumination
      and preventing the heating up of the entire stand, which
      is a disturbing factor in retaining the focus. The
      illuminating lens also serves to lessen the time of

      This photo-micrographic apparatus is also available when
      it is desired to photograph gross specimens as, for
      example, embryos, insects, etc., by reflected light, as
      is represented in the figure on p. 86. The photographic
      objective of 64 mm focal distance, is best adapted to
      this purpose. It fits in a collar in the neck of the
      camera and yields a magnified image of about 3
      diameters. The object is brought into proper focus by
      means of a small stand, the table of which may be raised
      or lowered as required.

      A polished wooden base, in which a lime wood drawing
      tablet is inlaid, supports a wooden stand which in turn
      holds a horizontal metal tube in which are a collecting
      lens and a reflecting mirror. The upright also carries,
      two arms, by rack and pinion adjustment, the one
      supporting the object stage, the other regulating the
      length of the camera. On the other side of the upright
      is a support for a lamp. The rays of this lamp are
      converged by the collecting lens upon the mirror, are
      reflected downward to the object and through the
      objective to the drawing board below. The various
      adjustments permit considerable variation of
      magnification with the same objective.

apparatus (page 82).

[Illustration: Photo-micrographic apparatus No. 105 with small stand No. 106.]

  =Large Projection Apparatus.=

In this projection apparatus an electric projection lamp is made use of,
the lamp being available for electric currents of 20 Ampères and about
48 Volts. To regulate the current a rheostat is necessary. When using
constant current the carbons should stand at an angle in order to
utilize to best advantage the stronger light of the positive (upper)
carbon. For spectroscopic projections the carbons of the lamp have to be
in vertical position.

Connected with the lamp is a triple condenser of 150 mm aperture. The
latter should be protected from the heat-rays by a large mica-plate
which is furnished with the apparatus.

Various devices permit very accurate adjustment of the lamp and
condenser. For example, two thumb-screws control the position of the
carbons of the lamp so that the luminous point may be readily brought
into the exact optical axis of the condenser. Again, the two inner
lenses of the condenser are moveable and are controlled by two knobs
conveniently situated as shown in the illustration.

By this adjustment of the lenses of the condenser it is possible to do
away with disturbing chromatic aberration. The rays of light leave the
condenser in moderate convergence.

For direct projection from the preparation the apparatus consists of the
optical bench upon which are mounted the various accessories in proper
succession (Fig. p. 88):

1. A large cooling cell, which is to be filled with water or alum

2. The bellows with tube. This is connected with the cooling cell by
means of a metal ring which slips over the end of the cell and is held
in place by a screw. The metal ring is attached to one end of the
bellows, while the other end carries a large tube.

3. The microscope condensers and diaphragm holder. A larger tube fits
over the tube of the bellows and carries on a revolving arm the cylinder
diaphragm and the two condensers. For low power objectives Nos. 1-3, the
cylinder diaphragm and the condenser of longer focus have to be used.
The latter at the same time serves as the objective for lantern slide

The other condenser is especially needed when high powers are employed
(Objectives 4 to 6). A small rack and pinion arrangement serves for the
adjustment of condenser and diaphragm.

4. The object stage and small cooler. The stage has connected with it a
second cooling cell on which the preparation rests. This arrangement
permits prolonged use of the condenser and the greatest intensity of
light without burning the most delicate specimens. The adjustment of the
object is accomplished by means of an arrangement which permits any
particular point to be brought accurately into the field.


5. The objective carrier is provided with a nose-piece for three
objectives, with a broad projection tube, having an Iris diaphragm for
the purpose of narrowing the aperture, and with a narrow tube which
screws into the broad one, in case it is desired to use oculars in
making the projection. The adjustments of the objectives are
accomplished by rack and pinion and by micrometer screw.

In order to change readily from microscopic to lantern-slide projection,
the parts 4 and 5 have been provided with hinges, by means of which they
can be thrown to one side after loosening a lever (see illustration

6. Wooden cover with cloth curtain which fits over the diaphragm
carrier, the stage and the objectives, to shut off any light which may
escape at the sides.

For the projection of large preparations of from 8-35 mm diameter our
photographic objectives of 24, 35, 42 and 64 mm focal distance are best
adapted (p. 86). In connection with these low powers the large tube only
should be used.


With this projection apparatus the powers of microscope objectives till
number 6 may be well employed.

The picture, even when the highest powers are made use of, and the
screen is at a distance of twelve feet from the apparatus, is of
sufficient clearness and brightness to be available for demonstration to
a large audience.

For the projection of lantern slides or of large section of tissue
following parts of the apparatus are required: Lamp, condenser, cooler
and bellows are the same as in the above described apparatus.

The stage and objective carrier are swung to one side.

The special-projection lens of 300 mm focal distance is to be used.

A slide carrier slips into the frame of the bellows, which is
sufficiently large to accommodate lantern slides 9×10 and 9×12 cm in
size. The slide carrier has a stop at both ends which facilitates its
adjustment in the axis of the instrument, and is arranged for the
simultaneous reception of two slides, so that while one is being
projected it may be charged with a second which may then without delay
be pushed into the optical axis as the first is removed. In this way
series of pictures may be thrown on the screen without interruption.

When so arranged the projection can be made upon a screen 30 feet from
the apparatus, over the heads of an audience.

[Illustration: Large Sliding-Microtome.]

Our larger microtomes are heavy and all their adjustments are of the
most accurate construction, the result being that they are very steady
when in use and permit the cutting of very thin and uniform sections.

They are to be had in three different sizes. The larger two are slightly
different in construction from the third. The two former microtomes are
provided with an automatic feed attachement. A heavy knife-carrier
slides smoothly and rapidly on a horizontal track and is so arranged
that it may be manipulated by the hand of the operator alone or by a
wheel and chain device, which tends to assure a perfectly uniform stroke
of the knife.

The objectclamp is raised vertically by a micrometer screw. This motion
is accomplished by turning a large disc having teeth cut into its
periphery and a turn of one tooth being equal to an elevation of 0.0025

The automatic feed is arranged as follows: With each return of the
knife-carrier to the end of its track pressure is made upon an
adjustable lever which regulates the motion of the micrometer wheel.
This device may be so adjusted as to move the micrometer disc any number
of teeth from one to ten with each sweep of the knife.

Three different forms of clamps may be had for these microtomes, and
freezing apparatus as well as paraffin tables can also be fitted.

The Fixed clamp, No. 128, represented in the figure of the large sliding
microtome, serves to clamp the specimen in position and does not allow
any further adjustment.

The Ball and Socket clamp permits the adjustments of the specimen after
it is held in the clamp by means of a ball and socket joint--see figure
of No. 129--a set-screw then holds it firmly in position.

The Naples clamp permits the accurate adjustment of the specimen at any
level, the clamp being supported on two horizontal axes at right angles
to each other, the one controlled by rack and pinion, the other by
endless screw.

The knife-carrier is arranged to hold the Thoma form knives, which are
fastened by means of a wing-screw. Other knives require a special
holder, such as No. 139.

      carrier is moved vertically by means of a micrometer
      screw to which a large disc is attached. This disc is

      is accomplished as soon as the two squares of the
      divided quartz-plate show the same color. Two tubes of
      100 and 200 mm length, for the liquid to be examined,
      are supplied with the apparatus. Should the rotation of
      the substance examined be excessive, it is necessary to
      use sodium light for illumination                         =52.--=
