truth ; and on its return to Portsmouth the watch was only in error
I min. 54-5 sec., equivalent to 18 nautical miles. In 1764 another voy-
age was made to Barbadoes, where it was found to be only 43 seconds
in error, equivalent to about 1 1 nautical miles. On its return it was
found to have gained only 54 seconds in the whole voyage of 156 days.
It has a plain balance, the effect of temperature on the balance and
spring being corrected by a compensation curb (brass and steel lamina)
acting on the spring.

John Harrison was born at Faulby, Yorkshire, 1693. He lived for
some time at Barrow, in Lincolnshire, as a carpenter. He devoted his
whole life to horology, and in 1 735 came to London, where he made
the two machines exhibited. Besides gaining the prize of ,20,000 for his
watch, he made many improvements in horology, and is credited with
the invention of the gridiron pendulum in 1726, and of the going fusee.
He died in 1776.

4264 Chronometer by Larcum Kendall, an apprentice to Harrison. This
was made on the pattern of Harrison's, as evidence that another maker
could construct a chronometer satisfactorily from Harrison's designs, in
accordance with the conditions of the award of ,20,000. Date. 1769-

4265 Chronometer by Larcum Kendall. Date, 1774. It is much less
complicated and has a spiral compensation curb.

4266 (a and b} Two Chronometers by Thomas Mudge, made in 1795-6.
These instruments are of fine workmanship. Mudge was born in 1715*
died, 1 794. He invented the lever escapement.

4267 Chronometer, by John Arnold, fitted with a helical balance spring,
and a new form of escapement, both devised by Arnold himself. The
escapement is now superseded by that of Earnshaw. Arnold was born,
1744, died, 1799.

4268 Chronometer by Earnshaw, who invented the spring detent escapement
and compensation balance, both substantially as now used. Earnshaw
was born 1749, died 1814.

4269 Chronometer by E. J. Dent, shewing the balance invented by him-
Mr. E. J. Dent constructed the Westminster Clock. He was born 17901
died 1853.

4270 Chronometer by Eiffe, shewing the balance invented by him. Eiffe
was born 1800, died 1880.

4271 Chronometer by John Poole, fitted with an auxiliary compensation
to the balance devised by him. Bom 1818, died 1867.

4272 Chronometer by Loseby is fitted with a balance invented by the maker.
The effects of variation in temperature are counteracted by the
expansion and contraction of mercury in a pair of curved glass tubes
fixed at each end to a laminated rim.

4273 A Modern Chronometer by Kullberg, and fitted with his flat rim
balance. Mr. V. Kullberg, one of the most successful of modern
chronometer makers, was born in 1824, and died in 1890.

4274 Pocket Chronometer by Arnold.

4275 A Deck Watch by Ashley. The chief difference between this and
the pocket chronometer exhibited is that it is fitted with a lever escape-
ment.

4276 A Model of chronometer mechanism, shewing the action of the
escapement.

4287 A Marine Chronometer, with a glass balance spring and special
balance.

This is the invention and handiwork of the late Frederick Dent, ot
the Strand and Royal Exchange, and the only specimen in existence.
The spring requires far less compensation for any given change of
temperature than a steel spring would, and the balance, which is
composed of a glass disc, is compensated by two small compensation
laminae mounted upon it.

SOUNDING MACHINES.

4377 Common Deep Sea Lead and Line. The most simple, most reliable,
and probably the most ancient instrument of Navigation.



Gallery] Navigation Section. 389

4378 Sounding Machine, Butt's, 1814. The sounding line runs through
a spring nipper attached to a bag filled with air, and so floating. When
the tension is off the line, by the lead striking the bottom, the spring
nips, and the line may be hauled in, the nipper remaining attached to
the point in the line indicating the depth of water.

4379 Sounding Machine, Massey's, 1820. Depth of water registered by.
revolution of geared wheels caused by fan-like blades passing through
the water.

4380 Sounding Machine, Walker's. Same principle as Massey's.

LOGS.

Common Log and Line. This log consists of a piece %f wood,
generally the sector of a circle, so weighted as to float deeply and verti-
cally, and so slung as to keep at right angles to the ship's course, and
consequently in nearly the same place, as the ship goes on. A small
line being attached to the log, the speed of the ship is known from the
amount of line run out in a given time. This form of log is in common
use, and has been so for more than three centuries.

4382 Log, Wood, Fish-shaped. Very old.

4383 Log, Brass, Tubular. 1828. Speed shown by the tension on the
line measured by a spring balance.

4384 Massey's Log. 1808. Invented by Mr. Edward Massey, of Stafford-
shire. The speed is registered by geared wheels turned by fan blades
on a floating vessel. It is the fii^t of logs and sounding machines
showing the speed or depths of water by these means.

4385 Walker's Harpoon Log. Same principle as Massey's.

4386 Walker's Taffrail Log. Same principle as Massey's, but the speed
is shown on a dial, so that it may be seen without hauling the log in.
A gong is sounded at regular intervals of distance.

Lent by the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty.

Lent by the Council of the Royal United Service Instittttion.

Mayes, R.N., 43, Tressillian Rd., St. John's, SJS.

4388 Davis' Quadrant, about 1732. Invented by John Davis, the dis-
coverer of Davis Strait. Came into use for measuring the sun's altitude
at sea at the close of the i6th century. It continued in general use till
superseded by Hadley's Quadrant.
