Microscope and oxy-hydrogen lamp projector

Image of a flea being projected by 'Palmer's improved portable oxy-hydrogen apparatus and microscope with prepared objects, complete.' The equipment is mounted on a wheeled trolley in front of a screen, gas being piped from storage bellows to the projector for illumination of the microscope slides. What appears to be a safety water pump is also shown, with a pointing stick. The complete apparatus sold for ú35. Figure 274 (p.61) from Palmer's new catalogue, with three hundred engravings... (London 1840). Edward Palmer (active 1830s-1840s) of 103 Newgate Street, London, was a chemical and philosophical instrument maker who was an early provider of photographic ('photogenic') paper and associated chemicals, based upon the work of William Henry Fox Talbot FRS (1800-1877).

Original: woodcut engraving. 1840
