Place's engraving of the 'Quadrans Muralis merid: 10 pedum Rad:'. The 'Meridian mural quadrant, 10-foot radius' was designed by Robert Hooke, Flamsteed's own design having been rejected by Jonas Moore. Flamsteed abandoned the instrument in 1677, 'having tore my hands by it and had like to deprive Cuthbert of his fingers.'
