Caption: Weight-powered mill. 17th-century artwork of a mill driven by weights inside a wooden construction. Two men are operating it by rotating a lever. This engraving is plate 25 from an edition of 'Theatrum machinarum novum', a work by the German architect and engineer Georg Andreas Boeckler (1617-1687). This work included mechanical designs for mills and pumps powered by weights, water and wind. It was originally published in German in 1661 (Nuremberg), with two Latin editions published in 1662 (Nuremberg and Cologne). This engraving is from one of the 1662 Latin editions by the German printer Paul Furst.
