Wow, a collectors item! If I remember right that is a vintage and veteran unit, perhaps fifty years old. They used to cost as much as a Buick (or Rover) automobile. Carnegie Tech had theirs buried in the bowels of Doherty Hall. It had a 5x7" camera using a clever zoom projection system with a rotating mirror located below waist level in a box. It also had a pair of polished wooden armrests like a naval periscope.
There is a picture of a Projection Microscope posted under Vickers at Toronto Scientific and Surplus:

You might also try posting on another group, sci.techniques.microscopy, and contacting microscope clubs or museums. Good luck!
