On October 9, 1991 the Republic of South Africa issued a four-stamp set honoring scientists. The 27c value (Sc #810) of this set depicts Swiss-born veterinarian Dr. Arnold Theiler (1867-1936) and his microscope.

From wikipedia, "Sir Arnold Theiler is considered the father of veterinary science in South Africa...(A son), Max Theiler (1899-1972), was a Nobel laureate in 1951 in Physiology and Medicine."

Hi bookbndrbob

I believe the stamp shows , in fact, a Lorgnette.

From Wiki:

A lorgnette is a pair of spectacles with a handle, used to hold them in place, rather than fitting over the ears or nose. The word lorgnette is derived from the French lorgner, to take a sidelong look at, and Middle French, from lorgne, squinting. Their precise origin is debated: some sources describe English scientist George Adams the elder as their inventor, while others cite his son George Adams the younger.

"The lorgnette was usually used as a piece of jewelry, rather than to enhance vision".

Fashionable ladies usually preferred them to spectacles. These were very popular at masquerade parties and used often at the opera. They were worn popularly in the 19th century. The lorgnette was employed as a prop and affectation by early 20th century trial lawyer Earl Rogers, and one is featured on the front cover dust jacket of his biography, Final Verdict, by his daughter Adela Rogers St. Johns.

On October 15, 1984 Cyprus issued this 15c stamp (Sc #635) commemorating the birth centenary of Dr. George Papanicolaou (1883-1962).

From ncbi.nim.nih.gov, "He is best known for creating the Papanicolaou test, commonly known as the Pap smear, which revolutionized the early detection of cerical cancer."
