Microscope

Description
This is a small compound monocular with coarse and fine focus, triple nosepiece, square stage, trunnion, and sub-stage mirror. The inscription on the tube reads “Y.C.M. / 100X / 200X / 300X.” The inscription on a paper sticker on the underside of the base reads “MADE IN JAPAN.”
This belonged to Chevalier Q. Jackson (1865-1958), an American physician and laryngologist who did important early work with endoscopy. Dr. Jackson’s granddaughter gave it to the Smithsonian.
