A plaque within the case bears the name of the original owner, L. Riederer.

This microscope was purchased for this collection in NY. It is then quite possible that the L. Riederer referred to on the plaque is Mr. Ludwig Riederer. He was the librarian for the New York Microscopical Society during the latter part of the 19th century. He published several articles in the Journal of that Society.
