Distillation of Oil of Vitriol (sulphuric acid or H2S04), 1651

Distillation of Oil of Vitriol (sulphuric acid or H2S04), 1651. An iron retort with cover, detail at C, D, is placed in a furnace and connected to a receiver at A. At B the operator is removing the lid of a pot with tongs and inserting ingredients with a ladle. This process entailed prolonged heating. At E is a pot placed directly on the fire rather than in a furnace. From A Description of New Philosophical Furnaces by Johann Rudolph Glauber. First English edition, translated by John French (1616?-1657). (London, 1651)
