Caption: Mining steam engine, 18th century artwork. This drawing shows the steam engine designed by the English inventor Thomas Savery (circa 1650-1715). It was used to pump water out of mines (shown at left). 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.
