BROWNING’S SPECTROSCOPES.

[graphic]

The STUDENT'S SPECTROSCOPE has a prism of extremely dense glass, of very superior workmanship; the circle is divided, and reads with a vernier to single minutes; the slit is furnished with a reflecting prism, by means of which two spectra can be shown in the field of view at the same time. The instrument will divide the D line in the Solar Spectrum, or the yellow Sodium lines distinctly. With a slight alteration of the adjustments, the instrument can be used for taking the refractive and dispersive powers of solids or liquids. The student's Spectroscope is the best instrument for the

Laboratory and for all general work in Spectrum Analysis. Complete in Cabinet

Dr. HAMPSON'S AIR-LIQUEFIER is now made to a standard pattern, and numbers are in use in University Laboratories and elsewhere in various countries. The whole apparatus is neat and compact and its parts very easily moved ; the Liquefier, without stand, being a cylinder 17 inches high and 8 inches in diameter.

It begins to liquefy air in from 6 to 10 minutes after the admission of air at from 150 to 200 atmospheres pressure, making over a litre of liquid per hour.

It requires no auxiliary refrigerant and produces a perfectly clear liquid which requires no filtering.

The operator has only one gauge to watch and one valve to control. HYDROGEN LIQUEFIER to the designs of Dr. MORRIS W. TRAVERS for use in conjunction with Air-Liquefier.
