A Very Good Swift Wale Limb Microscope

Description: Offered is a rare opportunity to acquire a very good and early model of Swifts Wale limb microscope. The microscope is in superb original condition with an impressive array of original accessories all contained within its French polished mahogany cabinet. The microscope is signed at the back of the foot;

Swift & Son.
81 Tottenham Court Rd
London N.W.

George Wale of New York designed what he called his "New Working" limb in 1879. It replaced the typical pivoting limb in wide use at that time, with a slot cut into the sides of a semi-circular limb. His innovative design allowed for a smooth, and complete radial incline of the body. A tightening screw at the side provides a very positive lock for the body in even the most inclined position. This arrangement was incorporated by Swift into the instrument seen here, and reached its culmination in the famous Ross "Radial" model.

This microscope stands on its cast brass oxidised and lacquered base with the large brass lacquered lockeing wheel to one side. At the top of the base is the Wale “Working Limb”. At the bottom of the microscope is a tubular support on which slides the support for the plano-concave mirror held in a gimbal. Above the mirror is the sub-stage collar with the mechanical stage above. X 7 Y movement is via rack and pinion and screw. At the top of the limb are the course focusing wheels and the long beautifully lacquered brass body tube. To one side of the body tube is the fine focussing mechanism operated via a knurled wheel. The microscope comes with the following accessories;

A 1/6inch Swift objective in a can engraved J. Swift London.
A 1/4inch objective can engraved J. Swift London. (please note no objective).
A 1inch objective engraved Swift & Son London. (Can not engraved).
A double nose piece.
A nosepiece analyser.
A sub-stage polariser.
A sub-stage wheel of stops.
A low power eyepiece.
A live box.
Stage forceps.
An eyepiece lucida.
A table bulls-eye stand.
Cabinet key.

Condition: cosmetically the microscope is in superb original condition with only minor scratches and wear to the lacquer. Optically the microscope is in good working order offering good clear images. Mechanically the microscope operates just as it should with no wear or slack.
