When, in 1761 they were appointed opticians to the king, the Dollond reputation for superior quality was forged. In 1819 the business was passed on to nephew George, remembered by history for inventing a variety of new precision instruments for measurement, astronomy and navigation.On the rear of the compass case is engraved a poem by Jean Barlow Hudson. This poem is found at the base of a public sculpture in Milwaukee USA, Compass, by artist Jon Barlow Hudson, her son.
Inner time is limitless from past lives can no longer remember, only feel.
Time flows, and around me a continuum moves and swirls, engulfing me, and moves majestically beyond my inner sight or imagination.
This time is immense, a celestial sphere yet it does not forget me, does not neglect me.
It embraces me.
I am a part of its verity.
It is part of mine.
My life flows.
