Here you will discover examples of rare early navigation instruments of the highest quality. We offer instruments that we think will appeal to the most discriminating collectors. We look for early examples from the finest known makers including Hadley, Spencer Browning, Troughton & Simms, Cary of London, Norie, Janet Taylor and Henry Hughes, to name a few. The development of celestial navigation instruments during the 18th and 19th centuries was the equivalent of today’s “high tech” industry.
