This is part of Highley's Educational Microscope Compendium, c. 1865. Two microscopes are stored within the main case. One being Highley's Educational Microscope (see image at the right) having the coarse focus utilizing a fusee chain drive. The other microscope being the case-mounted aquarium microscope shown on this page. The optical components are interchangeable between each of these two instruments. The remaining section in the storage case houses some slide making tools and slides.

Samuel Highley (1825-1900) was a London-based instrument maker, publisher, and photographer active from the mid 19th century.
