Eye Model
From the catalogue: "This is a greatly enlarged model of the eye, completely dissectable, and shows all of the different parts with a great deal of detail. The model is profusely labeled and this, with the accompagnying manual makes it a very valuable one for the study of the eye by the student of physiology and psychology. The model is approximately 6 1/2 x 9 x 12 in."

The model can be found on a photograph of wax models in the Harvard Psychological Laboratory from 1892, provided by the Harvard University Archives.
A lot of other demonstration apparatuses can be seen in the VLP's technology section. They are taken from our considerable collection of trade catalogues, giving access to many more instruments used in early physiology and psychology.
