Currently has 10x S. 536 Reichert Austria eyepiece for viewing the image prior to photography (facility for moving the light path in or out using a prism at the end and a lever underneath the "body tube" -- the main "body tube" is internal hinges out from the left side) with a PK 6.3xm objective for focussing on to the camera plate via a mirror which can be removed from an opening at the rear of the main body.

Photocopied instructions for using the fixed-length camera "Kam V" (n.b.

Condensers in a wooden box and 2 black leather covered boxes for the binocular head (box fits in main microscope case) and the half-shade monocular head. Two quadruple nosepieces. Simple monocular tube as well (see illustration). Several books on its operation -- best described in the 2 page light blue pamphlet from Baker. Body tube lock is a knurled double knob on right of the body tube. Eyepieces: (1) PR 321 pair of x15; (2) pair of 261 x12.5; (3) PR 511 ORTHO pair of x20; (4) PR o58 pair of x8; (5) x10 in monocular tube. [1] Objectives sets in nosepiece in microscope: (1) INT.

Large long barrel eyepiece in condenser box ( labelled PH). Also 6 eyepiece blanks in condenser box (2 Zeiss!!) plus strange glass sealed trough? Note: Although all the books say the objectives are not to be removed from the nosepiece most of those in the 2 nosepieces in my example have had the locking screws for the objectives tampered with. Probably belonged to George Rogers. These microscopes cost over £350 in 1954. A major laboratory purchase at that time.
