Plate depicts a man standing at a table where sunlight is projected past a mirror, causing the heating of antimony, as illustrated by the plume of smoke emanating from the antimony specimen located on the table. A lettered diagram explains the components of the experiment.
The second edition of Nicaise Le Fèvre's (1610-1669) seminal work was augmented shortly before the death of the author. Popularizing the science of chemistry, select plates have been digitized from both volumes of this textbook.
