Ultra rare, antique and miniature geodesic alignment circle telescope made by Berthelemy in Paris, France (not theodolite). Antique alignment circles are really hard to find, and this one is probably the best one, made in massive nickeled bronze and, with not doubt, the smallest antique geodesic alignment circle telescope ever made (long of telescope is less than 15.5 centimeters and diameter of circle is 10.3 centimeters). It is a portable and tiny geodesic instrument, therefore it could be easily carried for cartographers during the XIX century to draw maps. Really amazing surveying device in great original condition, with all accessories and its original wooden box (measures of box are only 29 X 12.5 X 6 centimeters and it has even its original padlock, but not the key). Circular scale has a working tubular compass and working circular level.
This instrument includes a filter and an adjustable base for calibration. Lenses are in perfect condition, with a small points of dust. All defects not mentioned but visible in the pictures will be considered as described. If you have any question, do not hesitate to contact me.
