1656411510Code 7346 Antique CompassSmall travel compass made of chromed brass, supplied to the American army during the First World War, shaped like a pocket watch, consisting of a magnetized needle free to rotate on a horizontal plane marking the direction of the magnetic North. Signed Taylor. Compass card with eight winds. Diameter 4.5 cm, inches 1.7, thickness 1.2 cm, 0.3 inches . Very good condition, fully functional.

The use of a magnetic needle is described by the Arab scientist Bailak Al Qabajaqi: in 1242 during a travel from Tripoli in Syria to Alexandria the captain of the ship used it, putting in a pail with water a piece of cork with a needle and magnetizing it with a magnet; the needle moved immediately in the North-South direction.
