Website of the Month

www.antiquespectacles.com

This educational website is about Vision Aids over the past seven centuries - mostly spectacles, but including magnifying glasses, water lenses and telescopes.

It is an international not for profit co-operative effort by enthusiasts and demonstrates that an obscure subject can be made accessible to a much wider audience.

The website's goals include educating, stimulating further research, attracting new collectors, and creating a forum for the dynamic exchange of information and ideas. It offers a wealth of resources and even has a games page.

Shown here is a pair of English gold-plated Martin's Margins of c. 1750 from the Museum of Vision, Harriet S. and J. William Rosenthal MD Collection.
