Uncolored engraving of Jacob Deghen's (or Degan) unsuccessful flight in Paris on October 5, 1812. Deghen used an ornithpter dangling beneath a balloon to change his altitude. When he failed to fly on this occasion, the crowd overwhelmed him and destroyed his apparatus and balloon. Deghen is shown on the ground with men around him holding onto his ornithopter as the balloon is pulling him away. A crowd is gathered around and a flock of birds is overhead. Description under the scene in French.
