Are there any experts on 19th century scientific instruments? I would like to know what a simisometer is. It is mentioned on a list of equipment Charles Darwin took on board HMS Beagle.

Best regards,
Nikolaj.

After being stumped myself, I have determined that the accepted spelling is sympiesometer and may be found on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sympiesometer
