Augsberg dial with case lid showing plaque

Augsburg dial for latitudes 10-90 north. The compass has cardinal points named in Latin and a 16-point rose in the centre. A replacement needle, blued for north, is surmounted by a brass cylindrical pivot. The remainder of the dial-plate is engraved with foliate designs and edged by geometric borders. The latitude arc is divided [10]-[90]. Hinged to the South side of the dial-plate, the plumb-bob support is elaborately shaped and engraved with foliate decoration and pierced to accommodate the plumb bob. Supported by three brass legs and a flower, the dial-plate is engraved in the centre of the compass back. A table of latitudes for a few places in Europe appears on a disc in the lid of the case. The black octagonal leather case has blue silk lining and a broken hook fastening. On the base of the compass, it is signed 'Joh Georg Vogler in Augsp.'
