Negus's Ship's Log

A patented ship's log by John Negus, of Brooklyn. The log was patented Aug 23, 1892, covering an antifriction bearing for the drive and the log's swivel bearing mount. Negus made a variety of nautical instruments, and received other patents for a ship's bell clock, 1893; an azimuth instrument, 1901; and a binnacle for submarines, 1905. The 1 7/8ths inch dial face is marked "NEGUS PATENT LOG". The brass propeller is marked "NEGUS". Complete and working, except for the rope. One screw on the bezel is a modern brass replacement.
