1625069140Code 6988 Nautical compassBrass nautical pocket compass, equipped with a lid with glass and viewfinder for checking the direction of a ship, beautiful compass card with eight winds on paper complete with goniometric circle and compass card block. English manufacture from the early 1900s. Excellent condition, fully functional. Diameter 4.3 cm - 1.69 inches, thickness 2 cm - 0.78 inches.

The earliest historical notes on the use of magnetic power in Europe are dated back to the end of the 12th century or the beginning of XIII century and attribute to the Amalfiers the exploitation of the properties of the magnet. The cardanic suspension made its first appearance around the middle of the XVI century. An exact description is given in the brief compendium “De la esfera y de la arte de navegar” by Martin Cortés (1551), which gives precise instructions to make a compass. The improvement of this instrument is largely attributed to the discoveries of new lands, from the mid-XVcentury.
