Stephensons Rocket

Stephenson's Rocket, historical artwork. Stephenson's Locomotive Railway Carriage, patented in 1829, competed in trials held by the Liverpool and Manchester Railway Company at Rainhill. It completed 20 laps of the course and attained a top speed of 38 kilometres per hour, enough to win the competition. New features in its design included a multi-tube boiler with 25 copper tubes and a blast pipe to increase the efficiency of the boiler. The Rocket was designed by George Stephenson and his son Robert, with the assistance of Henry Booth. Published in History and progress of the steam engine, England, 1830

George Calver, English instrument maker

George Calver (1834-1927) English scientific instrument maker. Calver's interest in astronomy began in childhood when his local clergyman showed him a reflecting telescope and challenged him to produce a mirror of better quality. He accepted the challenge, and spent his life producing mirrors for telescopes. His business flourished and grew, and the high quality of his work meant his mirrors were bought by amateur and professional astronomers all over the world. He continued working into his nineties, and by the time he died had produced as many as 4000 excellent optical mirrors

Muscles of the side and back

Muscles of the side and back, historical artwork. The skin and fascia (connective tissue) have been removed to expose the muscles (red) of the side and back of the body and their points of attachment. The trapezius muscle (upper centre of back) moves the scapulae (shoulder blades). The largest muscles on the back are the two latissimus dorsi muscles (lower left and right of back), which move each arm. Published in The Muscles of the Human Body; in a series of plates with references and physiological comments by Jones Quain in 1836
