CDR-1131: SR Set: Images for the Sciences

Scholars Resource is looking to serve a wide range of disciplines. This academic image set relates to a variety of scientific disciplines: Medicine, Anatomy, Biology, Anthropology, Astronomy, Engineering, Physics, etc. Included are portraits of noted scientists and historical images of early experimentation, including the interest in Alchemy. These images are in the form of engravings, paintings, objects and models. Of particular interest are drawings of Leonardo da Vinci and the group of Models constructed from his drawings. Examples of early industrial technology include an automated loom of 1745; James Watt's Steam Engine of 1781; and the internal combustion engine of 1860. (Updated 4/2011)
