Subject: 	Faustus Titlepage Question

I'm preparing a lecture on Doctor Faustus. Could someone please tell me 
what the object in the top right hand corner of the B-text titlepage is? 
The one next to the books. Is it a patten? A picture?  Surely not a 
compass? I seem to recall reading an explanation somewhere, perhaps by 
Stephen Orgel, but I'm damned, as it were, if I can place it now.

Thanks for any help,
Tom
