Seite 410 - An admirable and most forcible way to drive up water by fire, not by drawing or sucking it upwards, for that must be, as the philosopher calleth it, Intra sphaeram activitatis, which is but at such a distance. But this way hath no bounder, if the vessels be strong enough ; for I have taken a piece of a whole cannon, whereof the end was burst, and filled it three-quarters full of water.
Seite 462 - Now know ye, that, in compliance with the said proviso, I, the said William Francis Fernihough, do hereby declare, that the nature of my said invention, and the manner in which...
Seite 55 - England, by a description contained in a work whether written or printed, which has been publicly circulated, in such case the patentee is not the first and true inventor within the meaning of the statute, whether he has himself borrowed his invention from such publication or not; because we think the public cannot be precluded from the right of using such information as they were already possessed of at the time the patent was granted.
Seite 11 - I have seen the water run like a constant fountain stream forty feet high ; one vessel of water rarefied by fire driveth up forty of cold water. And a man that tends the work is but to turn two cocks, that one vessel of water being consumed, another begins to force and re-fill with cold water, and so successively, the fire being tended and kept constant, which the self-same person may likewise abundantly perform in the interim between the necessity of turning the said cocks.
Seite 127 - Between this plate and the bottom of the vessel a current of steam is introduced, by a pipe, so that it passes through the perforated plate, and the madder which is upon it. During this process, which occupies from one to two hours, a substance is produced, of a dark-brown color, approaching to a black.
Seite 108 - But Knowledge to their eyes her ample page, Rich with the spoils of time, did ne'er unroll ; Chill Penury repressed their noble rage And froze the genial current of the soul.
Seite 127 - This acid precipitates the coloring matter which is held in solution, and prevents the undissolved madder from fermenting, or otherwise decomposing. When the water has drained from the madder, through the filter, the residuum is taken from off the filter, and put into bags. The bags are then placed in...
Seite 301 - Paper proper for producing an amphitype picture may be prepared either with the ferrotartrate or the ferro-citrate of the protoxide or the peroxide of mercury, or of the protoxide of lead, by using creams of these salts, or by successive applications of the nitrates of the respective oxides, singly or in mixture, to the paper, alternating with solutions of the ammonio-tartrate or ammonio-citrate of iron, the latter solution being last applied, and in more or less excess.
Seite 11 - I have seen the water run like a constant stream, forty feet high : one vessel of water rarefied by fire, driveth up forty of cold water ; and a man that tends the work is but to turn two cocks, that one vessel of water being consumed, another begins to force and refill with cold water, and so successively ; the fire being tended and kept constant, which the self-same person may likewise abundantly perform in the interim, between the necessity of turning the said cocks.
Seite 301 - If, then, the process have been successful, a perfectly black positive picture is at once developed. At first it most commonly happens that the whole picture is sooty or dingy to such a degree that it is condemned as spoiled, but on keeping it between the leaves of a book, especially in a moist atmosphere, by extremely slow degrees this dinginess disappears, and the picture disengages itself with continually increasing sharpness and clearness, and acquires the exact effect of a copper-plate engraving...
