B&L Library

Below may be found those manuals, catalogues, price lists, and other bits of documentation from my collection which I have had the time to curate. All files provided here are out of copyright and are made freely available for the benefit of everyone. I hope that the increased availability of these documents will help others to get the most out of their Bausch & Lomb optical equipment. Please note all links open in a new window.

The files were prepared with an Epson GT-9800 flat-bed scanner using the default configuration of the Simple Scan front end for SANE. After scanning, the multi-page pdf files were optimized for use on tablets and ebook readers using Ghostscript, primarily to reduce file size.

If you have a printed primary source that you would like to make available here please don’t hesitate to reach out to me via the contact link at the top of this page. Any document that is provided will be made freely available and will never be sold except in special cases where high resolution raw files are desired by museums or educational institutions, in such instances a nominal fee may be imposed to discourage fraud.
