Italy warned by Menelik of dealing with the Ottoman Sultan

The Italians in Libya - Italo-Turkish War. Menelik I, the Emperor of Ethiopia (who had defeated Italy in 1889) warns Italy (represented by a lute-playing Signorina being ferried across the Mediterranean Sea in a gondola rowed by King Victor Emmanuel III of Italy) that the Ottoman Sultan Abdul Hamid II is even worse than he is! The Sultan holds out his hand in freindship, yet has a large club semi-hidden behind his back!! Date: circa 1905

Dr. Merryweathers Tempest Prognosticator Featured Print

Dr. Merryweathers Tempest Prognosticator

Featured in the Great Exhibition of 1851, Dr. Merryweather of Whitby's Tempest Prognosticator was designed to warn of approaching storms. Described as an ingenious device for the protection of life and property, it houses 12 leeches, disposed each in a transparent glass bottle, arranged in a circle "in order that the leeches might see one another and not endure the afflictions of solitary confinement". Atmospheric pressure agitates the leeches, who rise and move whale bone buttons, sounding the bell and so warning of approaching tempests. See 10423321 for a reconstruction
