Specimen tube by unknown zoom

Specimen tube

Specimen tube with remains of an insect in it with the top corked. This is quite likely to have belonged to Constance Lubbock (nee Herschel), the youngest of John FW Herschel's children who took her examinations for the Natural History Tripos in 1878 having gone up to Girton College, Cambridge in 1878. Certainly there are letters between her and her most scientific brother, Alexander, about her taking over the family laboratory in September/ October 1878.
