Caption: Air pump equipment, 18th century artwork. This is a crank-driven air pump (top), with the other drawings showing how the pump works. This page of drawings is from the encyclopedic dictionary Lexicon technicum (1704). Written by the English author John Harris (circa 1666-1719), and published in London, this was one of the first encyclopedic works in the English language.
