Vintage Ladybird Book THE TELESCOPE & MICROSCOPE from the How It Works Series 654. Matte Hardback.
"The glass lens has probably taught us more about ourselves and our surroundings than any other invention. In the form of the telescope and the microscope it enables us to look at the minute cells of the human body or the distant galaxies of stars. This book describes and illustrates how these wonderful instruments are constructed and how they do their work."
