TRAVELING SET: IN LEATHER CASE LIVINGSTONE: 1900-1920
A. HAUSTETTER: NEW YORK
This listing is for one of the neatest "traveling sets' I have ever seen. these were purchased by the wealthy to use on "Grand Tours" of the world,(during Edwardian times). It consists of a Compass,("TYCOS GRADE", a Pocket Barometer,(again "TYCOS" Short&Mason's best, graduated up to 16 k feet, an extra cost option), and a small thermometer graduated in both Fahrenheit¢igrade. According to my 1820 S&M catalog, the pocket barometer is 1 3/4" in diameter, best grade made, and is their model number 203. The catalog number for the set is "2049s". In catalog it is listed as;

"comprises a no. 2003 best quality watch size aneroid barometer,compensated for temperature and dial graduated to 16,000 feet in 50 foot graduations;a full-sized magnetic compass and a full scale thermometer. All in best quality blue soft leather carrying case with easel back for upright viewing. Weight about 11 ounces.

This happens to be one of the most accurate pocket style barometer-altimeters I have yet to see,especially in this small size. Compass appears accurate as well, and floats via knurled knob at top,which is also used to lock it down.Thermometer works as well,agrees with my lab quality standards thermometers. Case is very fragile, should be treated with care,latch in front works. I will include copy of the page from catalog.Made for"A.HAUSTETTER" of New York, I suspect they were a retail outlet similar to Meyrowitz, and Tiffany.

GUARANTEED

This instrument has been ultrasonically cleaned, then sparingly lubricated with moebious clock oil to provide many years of trouble free service in weather predicting aboard your vessel. Finally it has been precision calibrated in my IDEAL-AEROSMITH calibration chamber to provide complete accuracy.Check out the calibration report for assurance of accuracy.

THE REASON FOR THE"STRANGE" READING ON THE DIALS OF MY INSTRUMENTS IS THAT I LIVE AT 4400 FEET ABOVE SEA LEVEL. THE AVERAGE AMBIENT BAROMETRIC PRESSURE IS 25.5" or 860 millibars.
