Robert Barker

View of a microscope shown on a pedestal stand: with a section through the instrument, a scheme of its optical arrangement and details of the mirror-based instrument. The microscope was inspired by the Newtonian reflecting telescope. From the manuscript paper "An account of a catoptric microscope", by Robert Barker. Not signed. Royal Society Register Book Original, vol.19 1734-1736, pp.256-260. The paper was read before the Royal Society on 8 January 1735. The image formed the plate to the printed paper "A catoptric microscope", by Robert Barker, in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, vol.39, 1735-1736, pp.259-261.

Original: ink and watercolour on paper. 1734
