This rare pamphlet, by one of America's scientific pioneers, was intended for colleague microscopists and details some of Woodward's techniques for photo-microscopy, referencing a number of his images.
Woodward served in the U.S. Civil War as medical officer and produced several publications on war-related diseases. In addition he was a microscopist of worldwide reputation and an important pioneer in photo-microscopy. A collection of his photo-micrographs are preserved in the Royal Microscopical Society London.
