To focus the microscope, place the center of the objects lens right above the specimen and, while the tilting the cylinder forward and backward with your eye on the eyepiece lens,  fix the cylinder and observe at the angle which can give the sharpest image.
In 1830 appeared an advertisement of the pocket microscope “The Botanical Microscope invented by Dr. Withering, which is more portable and convenient  than any other is now manufactured by Mr. Beilby, Optician, Clare Street, Bristol ”
Dr. William Withering was an English botanist, geologist, chemist and physician. He invented pocket microscope for use on his botanical field trips, looking for herbal remedies.
This kind of microscope was popular in the USA. In 1823 the pocket microscope was advertised: “ $4 Imported Pocket Microscope, Graduated from 39 to 56 Power 3 lenses, 5 in long, 5/8 in. in diameter, with dust cup - $4 [..] of the same type of instrument, in 25 power, only $1, [...] These two microscopes are in grate demand by toolmakers, chemists, biologists.”
Today, this kind of microscope is advertised as  convenient in numismatics or a jeweler loupe, as well.
