This is a very rare special camera made by Leitz for take pictures with the microscope.
It's the Leica Mifilmca 1/3x, serial number 5099 (c.1927).
It was the progenitor of the Leitz devices for scientific uses and it's the "union" between the alredy existing Leitz microscope and the "new" 35mm Leica cameras.
In practice it's a simply camera like the Leica Compur without finder, with a cone with 1/3 magnification optics to which a shutter and a simply "reflex" system is connected (for viewing the image).
The shutter release button only needed to be able to advance the film, the camera has no shutter.
It was then connected to the eyepiece of the microscope.
This Mifilmca offer has the cone removable from the camera, it was fixed in the first cameras.
As is possible to see from the pictures it's in exc+++ condition (please remember its age) with some light signs of use (the "major" on the base plate).
The shutter "works" but we can't guaratee it's accuracy.
It comes with its original box (an internal support has come off but is present), two film cartridges a 8x eyepiece and a cable release (not well working).
A very nice and rare set, not easy to find, especially in these condition.
