Wanted: hemispherical magnifying glass

My dad is looking for a hemispherical magnifier. [more inside]

He purchased a copy several years ago of the Compact Edition of the OED, which had a hemispherical glass magnifier that looks something like this paperweight. Now a friend wants to get one for herself, but he hasn't been able to track one down. Thoughts?

Like these? (scroll down to E, F, and G). See also here and here. Looks like the key words are "dome magnifier."

Some are also made for maps.

Great! Just what we were looking for. (And thanks also, Sangre Azul, for the link to AS&S -- we've visited their Milwaukee store a few times, but had forgotten all about 'em.)
