Default Re: Sources of information on vintage microscopes?

Graham, looks like 1870's ish or earlier. Rotating disc for a condenser, single objective, and a separate magnifier on stand! Very nice. Those magnifiers go for quite a bit. had my first microscope, a Britex Naturalist, when I was eight and did a zoology degree, but have always been into radios too. I have now two brass microscopes! Not planning on any more.
Photos are from the ebay listing - the second one includes an unconnected camera lens that was thrown in! But I would like to date the second, W F Stanley, and I have a couple of questions.
