Some years ago i read a book on the invention of the microscope and its progress over the years.
Its title was something like The Invented Eye, or the naked eye,basically it had eye in it ! Wink
The Author was a Brian somebody!
I know its a long shot but i really enjoyed reading this book and I'd love to find it again!
