C. 1800 Oversized Engraving on Laid: Chemisty

Regular price $28.00

One of three engravings I am listing, c. 1800 or perhaps a little earilier, all from the same volume, which I have not identified. This one I love for the curvaceous shapes of those vessels, many quite biomorphic, and together making chemistry seem pretty sexy! Good words too: Pellican, Ingot, Muffle, Crucible, Retort, Receiver, etc. 

16 1/4 x 9 1/4. Very good antique condition, no tears or creases, just some age toning mostly around the edges of the paper, particularly bottom margin. Blank on reverse.
