Inside this Book – W. G. Ogg (Director, Rothamsted Experimental Station), D. Purdie (Armour Laboratory), Professor H. E. Shortt (London School of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene), and B. P. Uvarov (Director, Anti- Locust Research Centre). I only hope the information which they have given me has been satisfactorily passed on to the reader. To many writers and publishers who have given me permission to reproduce figures and matter which has already been published, I am also truly grateful ; I have indicated elsewhere the original sources of the figures which have been reproduced in my book.
Inside this book –A Hundred Years of Biology PDF Book by Benjamin Dawes – A HUNDRED YEARS OF BIOLOGY probably used lenses when this work was in progress (see Locy, 1925). The Dutch brothers Hans and Zacharias Jansen have been credited with the discovery of the microscope some time between 1591 and 1608, when Cornelius Drebbell also was making serviceable instruments. Soon afterwards (about 1610) Galileo was observing insects and other small animals by means of an “optic glass”. Illustrations of some of the early microscopes are represented in the appendix ” Dioptrique” to Descartes 5 Discourse on Method (1637). The first to use the new instruments in Italy was Francesco Stelluti, who, before 1630, in- vestigated the structure of bees. Many microscopic observations were published soon afterwards. Kircher in 1646 wrote notices on microscopic forms of life, and the first treatise on such forms appeared in Robert Hooke’s Micrographia (1665).
