The horseshoe-shaped base is attached to a rectangular pillar that supports the stage and the limb with an arm. The body-tube moves on the rackwork and has a triple nosepiece. The swinging substage consists of a condenser and iris diaphragm, and moves vertically by rackwork. This microscope was purchased by William Gammon, M.D., a Professor of Pathology at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, in Vienna in 1893 or 1894. It comes with a wooden carrying case and accessories (three cases for objectives). Signed: C. Reichert Wien No 15911.
