1527863814Code 5194 Travel compassTravel and topographic compass, wooden and brass, signed W. & L. E. GURLEY TROY USA of the late nineteenth century. Compass complete with a goniometric circle and needle lock for the calculation of horizontal angles. Very good condition. Perfectly working. Measures cm 9x9,5x3 (h) - inches 3.54x3.74x1.18.

William Gurley (1821–1887) studied civil engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute; he worked for Oscar Hanks, a surveying instrument maker in Troy, New York, and then went into partnership with Jonas H. Phelps, another local instrument maker. He took over the firm with his brother Lewis Ephraim Gurley (1826–1897) in 1852, and the firm began trading as W. & L. E. Gurley, becoming soon the largest manufacturer of engineering and surveying instruments in the United States. The design of their instruments remained almost the same for many years, but the signatures on the early Gurley instruments were cut by hand, the letters have V-shaped trenches, and their lines are of varying width; the signatures made after 1876 were done with an engraving machine, with lines with vertical walls and uniform width; and the serial numbers were introduced in 1908.
