Re: Who invented the microtome?
|From:||RUSS ALLISON <Allison@Cardiff.ac.uk>|
The definitive history of microtomy was written by Brian
Bracegirdle. It was his PhD thesis. One source of the book was
amongst the beautifully bound collection of reproduction copies
made by Jim McCormick and at one time given free with the
"Ames/Miles" closed tissue processor.
I have two different library reference.
A history of microtechnique. Cornell University Press. Ikatha, NY.
Heinemann Educational Books Ltd. ISBN 0435 541 20X
And it may be that Dr McCormick still has copies of his collection
for sale. Heritage Press, if I remember correctly.
