Naviculæ Dial. Pin


Portable altitude dial, signed by the French mathematician Oronce Finé, 1524. It was called because of its shape resembling a small ship, “Navicula from Veneto”.

Its fanciful appearance does not affect in any way its conceptual rigor and relates it to the Regiomontanus quadrant. 

The original is at the Poldi Pezzoli Museum, Milan.

Non functional item. Available on brass or silver plated, please remember to advise when placing your order.
