Caption: Cayley's flying machine design. Design drawings for a human-powered flying machine designed by the English engineer George Cayley (1773-1857).

This illustration was published in a paper titled 'Memoire sur la vol artificiel' by George Cayley, appearing in 1853 in bulletin number 4 of the the French aeronautical society (Societe aerostatique et meteorologique de France) that had been formed in 1852.
