dc.description.abstractThis unsigned, Cuff-type microscope is attributed to Tiedemann of Stuttgart. The instrument is attached to the box-foot by a beveled rectangular brass base. The curved pillar supports the limb, to which are attached the body-tube and the spring stage. Focusing is by the screw at the top of the limb. Accessories include objective lenses, ivory sliders, and stage forceps. For other Cuff-type instruments in the collection, see George Adams and Henry Shuttleworth.

dc.relation.ispartofAt the suggestion of Henry Baker (1698-1774), the author of the popular "The Microscope Made Easy" (1742), John Cuff (1708-1772) designed a new type of microscope providing for an easier access to the stage and a steady mechanism for focusing. The Cuff-type instrument was produced well into the 19th century.
