1601477497Code 6689 French telescopeBrass telescope with leather-covered handle and three-extension focusing. Maximum length 51 cm - 20 inches, minimum length 17 cm - 6.60 inches, focal diameter 3 cm - 1.18 inches. Complete with sunshade extension and dust flap. French manufacture of the second half of the 19th century. In excellent condition, fully functional, complete with custom-made wooden and brass support base.

The legend tells that a day in 1608 the son of an optician in Middelburg, Hans Lipperhey, playing with some lenses of his father, put a concave lens near his eye, having in the hand the other convex lens: with his arm stretched to the point of the cathedral’s bell tower, he saw the weather-cock larger and nearer. He showed it to his father and he fixed these lenses on a small board, making easier the observation, creating the first rudimentary instrument for optical approaching. But Lipperhey was unlucky, in fact when he sent in an application to General States of Holland for the patent for this new optical instrument, in a few days some other opticians claimed this invention.
