Within the pages of this site, we have endeavored to present a broad selection of Antique Microscope Slides along with a bit of general background and historical context for the various types and examples. Most of these slides were produced during the period of time from approximately 1830 to 1900, primarily in England, but in France, Germany, and the US as well.  We have attempted to show a representative cross section from the immense variety of commercial and amateur mounts that were produced during that era.  While by no means a comprehensive listing, they will hopefully serve as an interesting introduction, and provide some hint of the incredible range and variation of mounted objects that were available. This site is envisioned as an ongoing work in progress, with additional slide images and information being added as time allows. Please explore using the various "Slide Type" buttons to the left, or select the "Individual Mounters" button to view examples of some well known slide makers work arranged and listed chronologically by individual.  Please enjoy, and many thanks for visiting!
