Close up of the Lunar volvelle from an astronomical Compendium by Tobias Volkmer, 1645. The Compendia,  instruments that carry numerous devices for telling the time and performing astronomical calculations, were made in the German lands in the late 16th and early 17th centuries. They are often beautifully engraved in gilt brass. Typically such compendia carry a sundial, various lunar and solar volvelles, a compass, tables of latitude, and a perpetual calendar.
