    In my previous message I said by mistake that the third
    dividing engine is by Cary.
    It is by Cooke. Made in 1872. The one which is still working.
    
    Sextants by Cooke are sometimes found on e-bay. So we know now that
    he was a real manufacturer of the frames, had his own dividing engine.
    
    Alex.
