Analemmatic dial for 51 30' north. This dial folds together and carries with it a perpetual almanac. It comprises an ordinary horizontal dial and an elliptical dial. The horizontal dial, numbered IIII-XII, I-VIII, has an eight-point compass rose named by English initials. It is set beneath a hinged brass gnomon. The elliptical dial has a degree scale around its edge and an hour scale numbered IIII-XII, I-VIII. Its east side displays a declination scale while the west side has a zodiac scale. There is a slot along the meridian line to allow the (replacement) steel gnomon to be adjusted for the declination. On the back of the elliptical dial there is a scale along the slit for the times of sunrise and sunset.
