This telescope was made by British instrument maker John Browning (c.1831-1925), with his name and address (111 Minories, London) given on the base. Artwork from 'A Handbook of Descriptive and Practical Astronomy' (1890, 4th edition, volume II) by British author George Frederick Chambers (1841–1915).
