Antique Brass Microscopes Wanted



I buy antique microscopes

I buy antique brass microscopes and all kinds of early microscope accessories including: lenses, parts, microscope oil lamps, prepared slides, slide preparation equipment, and slide cabinets. Also needed for my collection are old microscope related books, trade catalogs, and artwork depicting microscopes and other kinds of antique scientific instruments. I have been collecting antique microscopes for over 30 years and there are still many that I am looking for. If you have an antique microscope you would like to sell, please don't hesitate to contact me with the information. I will respond to all inquiries. I am also interested in other types of historical medical and scientific instruments.

On this site you can view some of the antique microscopes in my collection. They date from the early 18th to the early 20th century. You can browse the site simply by viewing the images on the various pages or, in a more organized manner, by using the Site Index. I hope you find these instruments as interesting as I do.
