in London

R.& J. Beck introduced their new binocular microscope in April 1914, advertising eleven advantages over the monocular instrument. The stand was called the 'London' microscope, and cost £2-13-0 (£2-65) basic, and was in production for many years. It was based on a German design.

The binocular microscope in brass and black-painted metal is signed on the back of the U-shaped base 'R & J BECK LTD / LONDON / 30759'. It has two eyepieces and three objectives on the triple nosepiece revolving turret. There is no box and no accessories.

This binocular microscope introduced a new type of prism, which Beck claimed 'saving eyestrain and giving better results than monocular vision.'
