Besson in England

There is some more evidence of Besson's influence in England. A copy of his magnifying lectern appears in a brief 1620 work called The Storehouse of Industrious Devices by E.G., possibly Edmund Gunter. This same lectern is also copied (along with a whole pile of other devices) by Zeising.
