Obverse of Horary quadrant
This is a horary quadrant but unusually carries no conventional hour lines by which to tell the time. Instead, the front is marked with an astrolabe quadrant. A surveyors shadow square appears as a curved scale along the limb. Unusually for a horary quadrant, the equasion of time is set along the two sides of the instrument. It is signed 'Gab: Stokes Dublin fecit 1738.
