I have a small book called 'The microtome' published by Leitz in 1961. The
'state of the art' rotary microtome in that publication is the 1212. So I
guess the 1212 is of that vintage. Also depicted in the book is the 1213
small freezing microtome, the 1310 large freezing microtome, the 1300 base
sledge and the 1201 inclined sledge.
