Hémisferium

In April 2005, we created Hemisferium, Antique Scientific Instruments, S.L. We specialize in fabricating objects that link us to our scientific past, and in making them accessible to all those who love the art and beauty of science. Hemisferium was born after Villalcor, S.L., ceased its operations, and all its accumulated experience — more than twenty years fabricating reproductions of instruments for nautical or optical use or for astronomical calculations — is our inheritance. The goals of Hemisferium are: investigation, development, and recovery of the scientific-historic patrimony of instruments that, due to their importance in the advancement of knowledge and in the evolution of technology, deserve to be rescued from oblivion and shared in all their beauty.

he Cardan or marine compass is a nautical instrument whose use was fundamental in the development of navigation and cartography.New types of compasses were devised because the rock and pitch of a vessel make ordinary compasses useless. Ship compasses were mounted in a Cardan suspension, which allowed them to remain constantly level. The compass went through few modifications until the 19th century, when scientists, engineers and navigators improved it notably.
