EXPLORING THE WORLD WITH THE MICROSCOPE
OSCAR W. RICHARDS, Ph.D.
This is a reprint of a gem of an instructional manual
that hopefully will be of use to teachers and students alike
in spite of the fact that it was written many years ago. Basics don't
change much over the years and this little
booklet is a wonderful introduction to the microscope and its
Besides basic theory and operation there are included many experiments
to interest and challenge beginners and even advanced microscopists.
This booklet came from the personal collection of Mr. Martin Scott who
provided his copy to make it
available by this means to the larger community. Sitting in a drawer it
does not do much good to anyone.
It is hoped that by this means more interested individuals will benefit
from its availabiliy.
