Carengeot hinged contact goniometer, a fine example, c.1820
by "Pixii, Neveu et S'r de Dumotiez, Rue du Jardinet No.2, a Paris"

David Coffeen

Measuring 4-1/4" (11 cm) wide, this lacquered and silvered brass goniometer is complete, mounted with two polished steel sliding blades for rather universal possibilities of crystal edge contact, with measurement against the semicircular arc divided every degree to 180.  The arc is hinged at 90, to fold aside, and has a blued steel stabilizing strut.  Condition is very fine, noting a few oxidation spots on the steel, and some loss of silvering on the scale.  It is complete with the original shaped wood case covered in thin red Morocco leather (hinge separating) and lined in green velvet.

"In 1588 Barba was sent by the church to Peru, where he combined priestly duties with studies of mineral deposits, mining, and especially the treatment of silver ores by amalgamation. He traveled widely in the Peruvian provinces, living in Tarbuco (1590) and Tiahuanaco (1615). 1617 he moved to Yotala in Los Lipez province where he perfected his new procedures for treating silver ore. After 1624 Barba served the San Bernardino parish in the famous silver town of Potosi, where he presumably died sometime after 1639" (DSB)
