Item NA26 -  H. Hughes & Son Ltd. “Captain Field’s Improved Parallel Rule IOB

The Hughes firm did business at 59 Fenchurch St. in London from 1844 to 1940.  The production of this classic boxwood parallel rule and protractor surely dates to the latter part of the reign.  This style rule featured that protractor marks in both compass points and degrees.  This is in the 15 inch length,  The rule comes in its original pasteboard box with simple label.  I’ve not seen one “in the box” before.  Some later, computer-derived “directions for use” are included.  Fine
