Between 1995 and 2001, at the request of my friend and mentor, Savile Bradbury, I wrote a series of twelve introductory articles about light microscopy for the Bulletin of the Quekett Microscopical Club as an introduction to the subject for the amateur microscopist. Although a little dated, these may be found here as PDFs. Additionally, whilst teaching the principles of contrast enhancement I wrote a contrast bibliography of various references. I hope that you find these articles useful. I wrote them whilst teaching for the Royal Microscopical Society; from which Understanding Light Microscopy ultimately came to be written.
