    The Ifland Collection.

    The Ifland Collection.
    List member Peter Ifland has made a wide-ranging collection of sextants and
    other position-finding instruments, many of which are featured, in superb
    photographs, in his magnificent book "Taking the Stars".
    He has generously presented his collection to the Mariners' Museum in
    Newport News, and I understand that a special display of the collection is
    being assembled at the museum to coincide with the Scientific Instrument
    Symposium. This will be held from 29 Sept to 5 Oct, at the Mariners' Museum
    and the National Museum of American History in Washington. Information
    about the symposium can be found at .
    I don't know whether the Ifland collection will be on display to the
    visiting public over that period (perhaps Peter or someone else might
    confirm this) but if it is, I think anyone with a navigational bent would
    find a visit to be well worth while.
