zoom image

Object statement
Microscope, projecting, Newton & Co (marked Wright and Newton), 1953 (OF). Wright & Newton projection microscope together with accessories all set in a wooden box (LC).
The Wright & Newton projecting microscope was the first commercially available projecting microscope in the world, dating from 1884.
Wright & Newton projection microscopes of this type were first produced and sold in 1884. This unit dates to the period 1884-1900.
Wright claims to have demonstrated a projection microscope at a meeting of the Royal Microscopical Society in 1883, but it was not until the oxy-hydrogen projection microscope was introduced in 1884 by Newton & Co from Lewis Wright and Herbert Charles Newton's patented design (Patent No. 14951, 13/11/1884) that they were available for sale. Donated by Royal Society of NSW.
