Fine Provenanced Captain’s Telescope c. 1850


Single draw with sunshade by Wood of Liverpool. Main tube has green leather covering  with a couple of bumps but otherwise  in nice condition. The telescope is signed in script ‘Isaac Thos. Bartlett’ a storied sailing master on the East Coast working in the period 1840—1880. Lacks eyepiece slide cover.

 Good optics.  A wonderful and rare piece of Canadian maritime history.
