Analogue deviceAbout this object
An instrument labelled an “analogue device for evaluating specialized trigonometric functions”. The instrument was held in the University of Canterbury Chemistry Department, and may have been built in-house using parts made elsewhere, one of which may be German. A piece of old gum appears to be stuck to the upper part of the instrument.
Instruments of this nature would have been used by Canterbury College staff and students in the Chemistry laboratories when conducting experiments.
