1626441995Code 7028 Vintage compassMagnetic compass for nautical detection, of brass, signed Cruchon & Emons Berne n. 67770 of 1918 made for the U.S. Engineer Corps. It is a small compass, diameter 5.3 cm - 2 inches, height 1.8 cm - 0.7 inches; typically used in recreational sailing, therefore on boats less subject to magnetic deviation. It can also be held in the hand and therefore away from the magnetic fields of the boat. It is equipped with a sighting system with sight and an eight-wind goniometric compass card to measure the angle between the line of sight and the north indicated by the magnetic needle. Complete with compass card block. Excellent condition, fully functional.

The first hints in Europe on the use of instruments using magnetic fields for orientation are dated back to the late twelfth century, especially thanks to the knowledge brought by merchants and sailors after contacts with the Arabs: we find hints in the work by Alexander Neckam "De nominibus utensilium" and in the works by Guyot de Provins, where the magnet is called "sailor's friend". Even the inventory of a Sicilian ship of 1200's, the San Nicolò, refers to the presence on board of a magnet and a "bussola di ligno", that is a wooden compass.
