This volume, by Conrad Beck (b.1864) contains the information given in the writer's two previous books on the microscope, with a considerable amount of fresh matter. The optical instrument and camera manufacturer, R. and J. Beck was founded in 1843 and traded from the Mortimer Street address. Presumably, Conrad Beck (b. 1864) was member of this family.
