Studies of isotope shifts of three multipole lines between levels of the ground configuration 6 s 2 6 p 2 of Pb I, i.e.: 461.9 nm ( S 0 1 P 1 3 ) , 531.5 nm ( S 0 1 P 2 3 ) and 733.2 nm ( D 2 1 P 1 3 ) , as well as 710.2 nm line ( 6 s 2 6 p P 3 2 2 6 s 2 6 p P 1 2 2 ) of Pb II are presented. We determined the isotope shifts between four stable isotopes: 204, 206, 207, 208. By the use of King plot analysis we were able to separate the mass and the field shifts. We found that for the studied lines the contribution of the mass effect to the total isotope shifts is smaller than 6%.
