About this work

Description

'Employment for the Microscope was first published in 1753. It was aimed at the general public and included instructions on how to use a microscope. Written by Henry Baker (1698-1774), a natural philosopher interested in microscopy, the first part of the book was focussed on Baker’s research on crystals. It was a very successful work with a number of editions and remained relatively unchanged for over forty years. This page shows ‘Mr Wilson’s Single Pocket Microscope’, a type of screwbarrel microscope. maker: Baker, Henry Place made: England, United Kingdom
