Caption: Distillation. Coloured 16th century woodcut depicting apparatus used for distillation. Two liquids to be distilled are being heated in large flasks (bottom left and right) where they boil and turn into gases. The column in the middle is hollow and filled with water to cool and condense the gases as they rise up it. The resulting distillations are collected in the two flasks at upper left and right. This design is from the book Liber de arte destillandi, published by Hieronymus Brunschwyk in Strasbourg in 1500, and was probably never actually carried out in practice.
