nachet CLnachet CLThis camera lucida is based on an improvement in the prism as first suggested by a Dr Gozi and produced by Nachet about 1882 as reported in the JRMS of that year. It uses a larger prism than the Wollaston type. It came in a small hardwood case with miniature dovetail joinery. By 1886 it was produced both in a standard form with the microscope horizontal, and another form where the microscope could be used inclined at 45 degrees.
