  • Evenings at the Microscope – Philip Gosse -1874

    Evenings at the Microscope – Philip Gosse -1874

    Title continues … or Researches among the Minuter Organs and Forms of Animal Life

    A new edition revised and annotated published by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, London 1874.

    A classic on the subject and fairly comprehensive in detail focused on the student of microscopy. 422 pages nicely illustrated with the odd spot, missing the front free endpaper and with some marks to the original green boards although the gilt titling and designs are still vivid … the tadpole at the bottom of the spine is a delight.

    Good work on Victorian microscopy – a standard

  • Collectable Marine Microscope Slides – From the 1860’s – Prepared by Edmund Wheeler – From a 19th Century Australian Collectionn

    Collectable Marine Microscope Slides – From the 1860’s – Prepared by Edmund Wheeler – From a 19th Century Australian Collectionn

    Edmund Wheeler was a leading mid Victorian microscope slide preparer now highly collectable – one of this group is dated 1866 and the others of identical preparation must be from around that time. Ernest Wheeler sold his business to Watson & Sons in 1884 and died the following year. So all EW slides must be over 130 years old

    This group of five slides are in good condition and carry Wheeler’s distinctive yellow paper covering with burgundy and gold paper front cover with his “EW” monogram. Their condition is near perfect. They are from the collection of John Owen Evans a serious microscopist who lived in Port Fairy, Victoria and prepared slides of local subjects as well as purchasing top class London prepared slides through T Gaunt, Optician, who operated out of the Royal Arcade Melbourne.

    The samples comprise:

    Shells etc. from Chalk, Strood Hill Kent.
    North Atlantic Soundings from 2 Miles deep 1866
    Foramenifera from the Adriatic Sea
    Foramenifera from the River Suir (Ireland)
    Group of Heliopelta for Binocular

    All annotated in Wheelers tidy cursive hand and carry the circular Wheeler address label – 48 Tollington Road, Holloway, London
