Geoff,
I have forwarded your request to our historical curator Alan Hawk. NMHM has a very comprehensive and large collection of microscopes and related equipment. It seems to me that we have that camera lucida and Alan maybe able to give you the info you are seeking.

Dear All,

                    A colleague here at Queensland Museum is accessioning a Bausch & Lomb Optical Co. camera lucida similar to this one.

http://www.gemmary.com/microscope-camera-lucida-by-bausch-lomb.html

It belonged to C.J. Pound http://adb.anu.edu.au/biography/pound-charles-joseph-13156 who retired in 1932 and appears to be a version of Abbe's design with the 1894 filter modification, probably manufactured under licence from Zeiss.

I suspect it is from the first quarter of the 20th century, rather than the second.

Is anyone familiar with this sort of camera lucida? If so can you comment on the date etc. please?

Thanks,

Geoff
