Ernst Gundlach, monocular microscope, c. 1879. signed on the tube and base

The microscope is signed on two places, on the tube "Ernst Gundlach" and on the base "Gundlach". A similar microscope sold by Yawman & Erbe of Rochester N.Y. is also represented in this collection.

After the termination of his employment by Bausch & Lomb in 1878, Ernst Gundlach, for a brief period, worked with Philip Yawman and Gustav Erbe (also former employees of Bausch & Lomb) in the production of microscopes. It is clear that it was Gundlach who produced the optics, but it is less clear which firm actually manufactured the stands.
