Logan's Simple Microscope

This simple wooden monocular microscope was presented to the Royal Society by James N. Logan in October of 1871. The microscope is reviewed and illustrated in Gerard Turner's book The Great Age of the Microscope.

Constructed of hickory, this simple monocular microscope has a circular base with a turned pillar that supports the eyepiece, stage, and substage mirror. The eyepiece has several interchangeable objectives housed in wooden mounts, and focusing is accomplished with a wooden nut in the pillar.
