    Print, Etching on Paper, Uncolored, LANA'S AERONAUTIC MACHINE

    Uncolored etching of the aircraft suggested by Franceso Lana de Terzi (1631-1687), in Prodromo (1670). The four metal globes are evacuated so as to make the craft buoyant. The craft was never constructed and was beyond the technology of the period.
