EARLY SEA CAPTAIN’s LONG GLASS. Especially nice hand-held telescope made by the London maker T. Lorkin, as beautifully engraved in script near the eyepiece, “T. Lorkin, London, Day or Night.” This fine, olde English example has an early form single draw with wooden barrel and brass fittings. The wooden barrel is turned of a single piece of solid mahogany. The all original four lens optics produce a highly magnified, upright image of surprising clarity. This genuine Captain’s spyglass measures 20 inches closed, 35 inches long fully extended and is 2 ½ inches in diameter. It is in a very nice state of original preservation, but is missing it’s sliding dust cover on the oculus.
