1646501436Code 7223 TelescopeSmall brass telescope with leather-covered handle, French manufacture of the second half of the nineteenth century, focus with three extensions. Maximum cm 41 – inches 16, minimum cm 14,7, inches 5.9, focal diameter cm 3 – inches 1.2. Good condition in perfect working order, complete with customed base made of brass and wood.

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.
