A MODEL of this new microscope intended for use in universities and schools has been submitted to us for inspection by Messrs. R. and J. Beck, Limited, of 68, Cornhill, London, E.C. Its great point is stability, the outcome of a specially designed base and pillar. The position of the centre of the inclining ,joint is so placed as to give greater stability when the instrument is in a horizontal osition, whilst not interfering with its vertical rigidity. The size of the base has further been increased to insure steadiness under all conditions. The want of stability in microscopes has long been recognised as a weak spot, and we are glad that particular attention has been given to this detail. The stage is large and square, the coarse adjustment is by a spiral rack and pinion, and the fine adjustment is of the lever type. An iris diaphragm is attached. The instrument is built firmly, but with ease of movement; it can be lifted without shifting the adjustments, and altogether is constructed with a watchful eye to modern requirements.
