Ophthalmoscope of Dr. Liebreich

Invented in 1855, R.L. Liebreich's simple ophthalmoscope was a popular instrument in Europe and America until the advent of the Loring ophthalmoscope, around 1870. Lacking from this example are a set of 5 small unmounted lenses, one of which would be fitted in the clip on back of the instrument to match the examiner's vision to that of the patient. Also lacking is a larger hand-held lens for indirect viewing. The instrument is in good condition. The leather covered wood box is scuffed and the lid has separated.
