Sectional view of a Newcomen steam engine, 1737 Featured Print

Sectional view of a Newcomen steam engine, 1737

Sectional view of a Newcomen steam engine, 1737. Thomas Newcomen (1663-1729) designed his atmospheric or steam engine in 1712. Water was heated in the boiler and the resulting steam was let into the cylinder, pushing up the piston. The steam was then condensed, bringing down the piston. The piston rocked a beam which worked the pump. It was safer and more effective than the earlier Savery engine and was widely used to drain water out of mines. From Architecture Hydraulique by Bernard Forest de Belidor. (Paris, 1737)

The Eureka, 1845. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

The Eureka, 1845. Creator: Unknown

The Eureka, 1845. ...a Machine for Composing Hexameter Latin Verses, which is now exhibited at the Egyptian Hall, in Piccadilly. It was designed and constructed at Bridgwater, in Somersetshire...The machine is described by the inventor [Quaker inventor John Clark] as neither more nor less than a practical illustration of the law of evolution...The machine contains letters in alphabetical arrangement. Out of these, through the medium of numbers, rendered tangible by being expressed by indentures on wheel-work, the instrument selects such as are requisite to form the verse conceived; the components of words suited to form hexameters being alone previously calculated, the harmonious combination of which will be found to be practically interminable...During the composition of each line, a cylinder in the interior of the machine performs the National Anthem'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII
