Suter, Richard 1864 - 1959


Richard Suter was a well-known microscope dealer, based in London. In 1896, he purchased the business of Elizabeth Eleanor Dancer. The business consisted of the original negatives produced by John Benjamin Dancer for his microphotographs, and the remaining stock of microphotographs listed in Dancer's 1873 catalogue.

In 1900, Suter produced an updated catalogue of the Dancer microphotographs. He did not produce new microphotographs from the original negatives, but instead focused on selling the remaining stock of microphotographs produced by Elizabeth Eleanor Dancer.

Suter died in 1959, and the Dancer negatives and documents relating to Suter's purchase of the business passed to his sister, Mrs D Peirce.
