One wood and brass hanging clinometer. The wooden mount is cracking along bore holes drilled in the back of the piece used to mount it originally. Approximately 14" x 16" x 1/2". In addition there is paint spatter present, chiefly along the edges but also on the face itself. One brass Hemisferium Gunter's Quadrant. An intricate piece in an unusual square shape. The Latin inscribed along the sliding rule that translates to "the quarter figure of the unequal hours drawn in the manner of the ancients." This piece is almost pristine except for some slight warping of the metal along the length of the rule. Measures approximately 15 1/2" x 15 1/2".
