I am in love with this microscope. So gorgeous!   This microscope, made by Christopher Cock in London in 1665, was used by Robert Hooke of the Royal Society. Hooke is the author of “Micrographia” and was the first person to apply the word “cell” to microscopic structures. (M-030.00276, Photo courtesy of the National Museum Health and Medicine)
