Bronze Pocket Sextant with Case

This is a reproduction of a classic sextant from the Victorian era.  Sextants have been used since the 18th century to determine latitude.  Defining the angle of the Sun and Stars with the horizon was the way to navigate and survey since ancient times, with constant improvements along the way.  The first sextant was produced by John Bird in 1759.  This example includes a fine brass-trimmed cherry wood box with brass corners to withstand transport at sea.  Ideal gift for a history enthusiast or a collector of nautical accessories.  Also available without the wooden collectors case.
