Microscope Manuals and Brochures

Wild M5 Microscope

Classic Optics specializes in vintage and classic microscope manuals and brochures from Wild, Leitz, Zeiss, American Optical, Nikon, Olympus, Bausch and Lomb and others. Also microscopes, accessories, vintage microtomes and related laboratory equipment.

Early on when I started using microscopes I found it difficult to find information about operation, accessores and the like for my first microscope a Wild M20. This set me on a mission to find not only manuals and brochures on my own equipment but others as well. Now ten years later I devleoped this site to help others. I've spent a great deal of time and funds to gather this information. If we do not have a microscope, part or manual, our friendly network of national and international vendors can surely be of assistance.

We are always looking for microscopes, parts, accessories and manuals please contact us if you have interest in selling your items. All considered regradless of age or condition. We can also help if you would just like and estimate of value for your vintage or collectible microscope and related laboratory equipment.

Classic Optics always has something of interest, please check back often for updates as products are being added frequently.

Thank you for visiting and we hope you find Classic Optics enjoyable and interesting.
