This c.1760 hand colored engraving explains the concepts and construction of barometers and Thermometers . This print would be a great gift for anyone into meteorology or the history of technology!

It is from a series of engravings executed in Germany during the mid-18th century to illustrate the construction and application of such things as sundials, forts, barometers, columns, telescopes and canons, as well as amplifying and explaining such concepts as perspective, weights and measures, celestial mechanics and mathematics. They are highly informative, beautifully drawn and well colored, and are also very uncommon.

The print is matted in acid-free materials and installed in a c.2000 decorative gold frame. The print and matting are in good condition, and the frame may have some minor dings.

Print size is 12"x17", and the frame size is 19"x24". Other, similarly framed building & technology prints in my shop are 4152AUC1. 4152AUC2. 4152AUC3, 4152AUC4 and 4152AUC6
