Caption: Static electricity experiments, historical artwork. Turning the wheel at lower right creates a charge on the man on the trapeze, which he passes to the girl on the wooden (non-conducting) block. She is observing the effects on a pile of small flakes. This illustration is from Recueil de Traites sur l'Electricite, Traduits de l'Allemand & de l'Anglois, seconde partie, published in 1748.
