Description
The manufacturer described this instrument as a “Laboratory Spectrometer, Bunsen’s model,” noting that it had a stationary circle 27 cm diameter, divided into 10’ and read by verniers to 10" of arc. The “SOCIETE GENEVOISE / Pour la Construction / D’Instruments de Physique / GENEVE” inscription refers to a firm that, since its founding in 1862, has supplied sophisticated apparatus to laboratories around the world.
