Quekett Club Journals

Price: 56.00

This is Series 4, volume 2, no's 1-3 of the Journal of the Quekett Microscopical Club edited by H. Dennis. Published just after the end of the Second World War as life was struggling to come back to normal, volume 2 had only three numbers dated April 1945, February 1946 and April 1947. Obviously, these show signs of their age but are all complete and intact. A collector's item.

Scientific PhotoMACROgraphy

Price: 17.00

As the title suggests this is a book that is concerned with the photography of scientific specimens under low power magnification. Without doubt this is the challenging end of magnification and photography. Written by Bracegirdle the content is clear and precise. RMS series number 31. It deals with both transmitted and incident illumination. 105 pages with an index

Microscopical Mounts and Mounters

Microscopical Mounts and Mounters

Probably the most prolific author in the relatively modern microscopy world is Brian Bracegirdle and this is yet another of his publications. One of the most popular areas of microscopy is the collection of antique microscope slides from the Victorian era.and this book seeks to provide what is known about these individual slide mounters who made a good living from providing prepared slides for those with the funds to afford microscopes but who did not want to get their hands 'dirty' preparing the slides!
