Butterfield dial, reverse
Butterfield dial for latitudes 40-55 north. The compass has an eight-point rose with the cardinal and quadrantal points named in French and intermediate points marked by lines. North is offset 15 west to allow for magnetic variation. The latitude scale on the gnomon is adjustable for latitudes 40-55. The compass base is engraved with acanthus at the centre, while the remainder of the base and the back of the dial-plate is filled with a table of latitudes in two columns consisting of towns and cities in Europe.
