Caption: Giovanni Caselli (1815–1891), Italian physicist. Caselli invented the first practicable telefax machine, the pantelegraph. Its use of a large pendulum overcame the synchronisation problems between the transmitter and receiver in existing telefax devices. It was capable of sending and receiving both written script and drawings. Following a successful demonstration in 1861, Napoleon III ordered the pantelegraph to be used on the French national telegraph service. Artwork from 'Electricite' (1911) by French civil engineer Max de Nansouty (1854-1913), part of the 'Les merveilles de la science' series of 1867-1891 by Louis Figuier.
