The sector, also known as the proportional, geometric, or military compass, evolved in the late sixteenth-century from devices used by military engineers, and was well-known across Europe before Galileo published his work on it. Thomas Hood, a fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, appointed in 1588 mathematical lecturer to the City of London, probably first learned of the instrument through contacts with the military; “with this book title, he seems to have coined the English word sector (at least as it applies to a mathematical instrument)” (Tomash & Williams, p.1459). Hood’s sector was designed mainly for land surveying. His book notifies the reader that it could be purchased from the instrument maker Charles Whitwell (fl. 1582-1611), who engraved the title-plate for this book.
