"Eleven years after the appearance of The Microscope Made Easy Baker published a second microscopical work, Employment for the Microscope, which was as succesful as its predecessor ... Part I of Employment (etc.) is devoted to the study of crystals, and Part II is a miscellany of Baker's microscopical discoveries ... Both works were deliberately written for the layman" (DSB I, 411). Die Tafeln mit Darstellungen mineralogischer, tierischer und pflanzlicher Präparate. - Etwas gebräunt u. vereinzelt etwas stockfleckig; Tafel zu S. 422 etwas geknittert u. mit Einriss bis knapp ins Bild.
