   SOLD Fuller cylinder spiral scale slide rule.17" long and consists of a hollow cylinder that can be moved up and down or around an inner cylinder that is attached to a handle. A single spiral logarithmic scale is wound around the outer cylinder. There are two brass indices (see attached photos), a fixed index attached to the handle, and a movable index attached to a brass tube that slides up and down the inner cylinder. Production of the Fuller Slide Rule began in 1879. All of them were produced by the W.F.Stanley Co. of London, England. This rule is of the type 1, with the serial number of 733 which indicates a date of 1894, as set out in a table of known Fuller slide rules published in the "Chronicle of the Early American Industries Association" volume 50, number 3, September, 1997. Wayne E. Feely is the author of the article titled "The Fuller Spiral Scale Slide Rule" in which he prepared and presented that table. Mr. Feely further states that "of the four types of Fuller Slide Rules known, only the Type 1 appears to have been sold by suppliers in the U.S. who obtained the rules from Stanley and simply added their own labels. This Fuller rule has only its Stanley label. The box is mahogany, machine dovetailed, with the word "calculator" stenciled on the top of the box. The rule, the box and the label all are in excellent untouched condition. The rule has browned in some areas, but not badly; it has no physical damages, no scrapes, no significant scratches, no tears, no dents. The box and label are in mint, untouched condition.

A cased model of The Sovereign of the Seas 1852
Sovereign of the Seas was a clipper ship launched in 1852. She was built by Donald McKay of East Boston in the U.S.A. She was the first ship to travel more than 400 miles in 24 hours. On the second leg of her maiden voyage, she set a record passage from Honolulu Hawaii to New York, arriving in 82 days. She then broke the record to liverpool England, making the passage in 13 days, 13.5 hours. In 1853 she was chartered by James Baines & Co. of the Black Ball Line, Liverpool for the Australia trade. On that route in 1854, she recorded the fastest speed ever for a sailing ship, logging 22 knots.

The largest and fastest of the “Extreme” Clipper ships
Which right from the beginning was pronounced to be "the longest, sharpest, and the most beautiful merchant ship in the world."
Captain McKay brought the Sovereign of the Seas back from Honolulu around the Horn to New York in the record time of 82 days. She had been gone for nine months and in that time earned for her owner and builder Donald McKay the princely sum of $138,000.

The day we ran 430 miles she had the wind on the larboard quarter and carried all drawing sail from the topsail down, but had the topmast been sound she could have borne the topmast-studding sail also. The sea was high and broken, the weather alternately clear and cloudy, with heavy showers, and at night we had occasional glimpses of moonlight She ran about as fast as the sea and when struck by a squall would send the spray masthead high. Now and then she would fly up a point and heeling over skim along between the deep valleys of the waves, and then, brought to her course again, righten with majestic ease and as if taking a fresh start would seem to bound from wave to wave.
