A Zeiss/B&L Stereo Microscope

Published in Autumn 1989  Zeiss Historica Journal

Author: Fred Matthies

See Page 12 – 13.

The author illustrates a Greenough designed stereo microscope built upon the patent of Ernst Abbe’s prism binocular. It was used for the purposes of mining engineering. It bears the trademarks of Carl Zeiss Jena as well as the Bausch and Lomb mark combining Zeiss, Saegmuller and Bausch and Lomb. Normally this microscope would have been made under license from Zeiss by Bausch and Lomb but in this case, it was imported and sold by Bausch and Lomb.

Author: Nicholas Grossman

See Page 18 – 19.

A report based on the book written by Wendell Berge during World War II about the cartels   that supplied the governments of the world with war materiel. Zeiss and Bausch & Lomb were an important part of that period but the text of the book must be read with an eye on the political situation of that era.
