Interior of a boring shed 5-14. Boring tools. (cont. below) Print Specifics: Type of print: Steel engraving - Original antique print Year of printing: not indicated in the print - actual 1844 Publisher: Georg Heck Condition: 1 (1. Excellent - 2. Very good - 3. Good - 4. Fair) Dimensions: 9 x 11.5 inches (23 x 29 cm), including blank margins (borders) around the image(s). Paper weight: 3 (1. Thick - 2. Heavier - 3. Medium heavy - 4. Slightly heavier - 5. Thin) Reverse side: Blank Note: Green color 'border' around the print in the photo is a contrasting background on which the print was photographed. (cont.) Ffig. 2, illustrates the conditions necessary to the production of an Artesian well; the water, draining from a considerable elevation and extent of surface, sinks into basin-shaped strata, and there accumulates by coming between strata impervious to water. A pressure will thus be exerted upon any point of the inclosing walls, equal to that of a column of water, whose height is the vertical height of the most elevated portion of the layer cf water above the point in question. If, then, the interspace, a, between two impervious strata be reached by means of a hole bored through the incumbent masses, the water may flow out through the hole, and be carried by hydrostatic pressure to a height b, equal to that of a. If a tube be inserted in the hole, the elevation of the ascending stream will be modified by the resistance of the air and the friction on the walls of the tube; thus the actual height of the water in the tube will be less than that which is theoretically possible. On boring at a point, d, lying higher than the body of water, c, the water will only partially fill the tube, that is, to the level of c. The boring of Artesian wells is attended with many difficulties, as it requires an accurale knowledge of the geognostical character of the country to make success anything more than problematical. And even if success be theoretically certain, unknown and local conditions may exist in the subjacent strata to render such success impossible. Boring instruments of ditlerent character are required for different kinds of rocks or deposits, and the peculiarities of the particular case may be such as to require a highly inventive genius to suggest new apparatus suitable to the emergency in nliestion, when all the old appliances have failed. The principal kinds of boring tools are those intended to penetrate masses of slight consistence, as in fig. 11 : those intended to elevate watery, muddy, or pasty masses from the bottom of the cavity, as in fig. 12, consisting of a cylinder provided with a valve, so tliat substances may enter, but cannot pass out again without assistance; finally, .those intended to penetrate hard rocks, and for this purpose provided with sharp corners (figs. 6 and 7). These instruments are screwed to strong shafts or attached byiron pins, and set in vertical and rotary motion by various forms of machinery, this being effected in a specially contrived house or shed. Fig. 4 represents the interior of such a boring shed. Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy!

TURKEY Trebizond on Black Sea - 1887 Wood Engraving

Full star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star small

This old engraving has substantiated and stimulated a recent interest of mine; this physical thing now hangs in front of my reading chair, and I have found the digital copy of the charming old book from which it was cut (VOYAGES AND TRAVELS OR SCENES IN MANY LANDS VOLUME
de Colange, Leo (Ed.)).
Published by E.W. Walker, Boston, MA (1887))
I recommend enjoying some of the 19th century paintings under "Trabzon in art" in commons.wikipedia., which is where I first discovered this one. In some of these it is the artists viewpoint of serious (not ) peacefulness that I especially enjoy, and now this is substantiated, in front of my reading chair.
