RE: Information on the Histology

From:"McCormick, James"

ALL, We are the publishers of the Bracegirdle book and have many dozens of
copies along with all of the other Science Heritage Books. We are fortunate
to have copies of both the 1st and  2nd edition.  Indeed, it is a treasure
chest of information.  As a matter of interest, I visited with Dr.
Bracegirdle in England, two weeks ago.  He is in good health and continues
to work with the Quekett Microscopical Society.  You might look them up on
the web.  Good may contact me at, also see

I know that  M Lamar Jones and a Dr. McCormick had taught a course at past
NSH symposia. Dr. McCormick had a keen interest in the history of old
techniques and microscopes. Lamar would be a good resource, as he's easier
to locate, because he's actively involved in the NSH.  Also Dr. McCormick
published a collection of books having to do with the history of microscopes
and microtechnique. They were published in 1987 by Science Heritage Ltd.
                                 Lincolnwood, IL 60645   They are entitled
History of Microscopy Series
I hope this helps you out.
