* Edward Nairne was one of the best-known London barometer and scientific instrument makers in the later part of the 18th century until his death in 1816. In 1773 Nairne invented a special marine barometer with a narrow guage tube to contain any violent movements of the mercury. He advertised ‘barometers, marine, diagonal, standard or portable’ see figure 20 as illustrated on page 155 of Edwin Banfield’s book “Barometer Makers and Retailers 1660 – 1900”.
