Las instrucciones, en inglés, indican que se exportaban a paises anglosajones. Esta es la información que se suministraba: THIS MICROSCOPE IS SO CONCISE it can be carried in the pocket. YET IT IS SO STRONG IN MAGNIFYING POWER that it takes the place of a Compound Microscope. SO SIMPLE IN CONSTRUCTION that a child can operate it as well as a medical doctor. It is useful for thousands of things. THERE IS AN EDUCATION in it for children that cannot be gotten out of books. It is useful to the Medical man, to the Professional man, to the Mechanic, to the Farmer, and in fact to EVERYONE alike.
It is Specially Used for the Following Purposes: To Examine Blood, Water, Urine and all Fluids, as well as Seeds. Minerals, Flowers, Plants, Insects, Diamonds, Jewelry, Plateware, Coins. Bank Notes, Hard Signatures, Splinters in the Flesh, Particles in the eye, and in fact, it magnifies anything. It is unlike a compound microscope, as all objects can be adjusted WITHOUT MOUNTING THEM ON A SLIDE.
23 Grand Prize Medals and Diplomas Awarded. This Microscope by the Leading Expositions of the World.
Nº. 1 Is a case for holding and protecting Nos. 2, 3 and 4.
Nº. 2 Magnifies by simply placing it on the object.
Nº. 3 Magnifies all fluids placing on the lens.
Nº. 4 Is a needle for impaling and holding insects and poisonous matter.
These are specially prepared specimens to demonstrate the power of this microscope, as they are not found in all water, vinegar, figs, prunes, cheese, etc.
IMPORTANT. The square-shaped lens (No. 3) is used only for liquids, germ life, mites, etc, in fact only where the object is so tiny it cannot be brought out clearly with the other lens. To illustrate, a drop of "Mother" of pure cider vinegar, containing life, when placed on the square lens, will show hundreds of eel-like germs swimming around. Stagnant or impure water will likewise show germ-life, but do not expect to see life in pure water, or where no life is present. This lens magnifies about 300 times. To use the square lens, place object on square end of lens, then place in brass tube, and holding to the eye, look towards the light. The round lens (No. 2) is used separately, and is used for ordinary purposes, where a good magnifying glass is necessary. The children will find this interesting and instructive in the study of botany, mineralogy, insect life, etc.
