Nachet's Portable Microscope. This Microscope is shown in Figs. 7 and 8 set up for use as a table Microscope. Fig. 8 is intended to show its application to the observation and dissection of large surfaces or objects contained in small troughs or tubs. By loosening the milled ring just above the stage (A, Fig. 8, C, Fig. 9) the compound body can be removed, and an arm L carrying a lens or doublet substituted. To put the instrument in its box (Fig. 11), the stage P (Fig. 10) is turned completely over on the pivot O, and the base is then only 4- 5 cm. in height. The box is 19 cm. x 11 cm. x 6 cm. The instrument seems to be an excellent solution of the problem of constructing a Microscope which shall be really " portable " and at the same time quite steady for ordinary use.
