Carl Zeiss Jena (Jena, Germany)

This book has apparently been part of one of the institutional libraries of the Carl Zeiss company. The Carl Zeiss incorporation is one of the most well-known and still succesful German manufacturer in the field of optics, industrial measurements and medical devices. The creation of the company library in Jena dates from 1905, when the physician Ernst Abbe, a friend of Carl Zeiss, offered his private scientific collection to the Carl Zeiss Company. Today, the library is part of an University of Applied Sciences.
