A Glimpse into Micro Worlds

These amazing antique microscope slides from the collection of Howard Lynk offer a unique glimpse into an earlier age, although many are as relevant to our lives today as they were back when they were originally prepared. I find them interesting from many different perspectives ... including the inherent scientific interest of many of them, their undeniable beauty as works of art and certainly their significance as important Historical Scientific Artifacts worthy of preservation and study.
