Antique Octant Owned by Captain Job Terry, New Bedford, Case with Label
Case with label of John H. WHEELER, 220 Water Street, New York (Ship Chandler) - SOLD


Antique Octant Owned by Captain Job Terry, New Bedford, Case with Label 
Case with label of John H. WHEELER, 220 Water Street, New York (Ship Chandler), entire view box

An identified instrument engraved with owner’s name, Job Terry [Jr.] (1783-1861) of
New Bedford, Massachusetts who was master of New Bedford’s whaling ship Good
Return beginning in 1821; he made nine voyages as master. Published within Richard
Dana’s book, Two Years before The Mast written in 1840, Captain Terry is said to have
been known in every port in the pacific. Portraits of the captain and his wife are within
the collection of the New Bedford Whaling Museum. The octant remains within it
stepped and fitted mahogany case; arched medial frame brace surmounted with pencil
displays embossed owners name; Vernier is engraved. The case remains in original
condition showing typical, as expected shrinkage; minor wood loss to one corner of
bottom board.

The instrument is accompanied by an early statement on laid paper; stated is that the
owner refused a cash offer for the instrument by a Mr. Emery of Salem which he bought
new in 1844. The document is a bonus as we can’t confirm any connection to this
instrument. (case: 17" x 14.25" x 3.5")
