Side 36 - White paper, or white leather, moistened with solution of nitrate of silver, undergoes no change when kept in a dark place, but, on being exposed to the daylight, it speedily changes colour, and after passing through different shades of grey and brown, becomes at length nearly black. The alterations of colour take place more speedily in proportion as the light is more intense. In the direct...
Side 18 - But nature makes that mean : so, over that art Which you say adds to nature, is an art That nature makes. You see, sweet maid, we marry A gentler scion to the wildest stock, And make conceive a bark of baser kind By bud of nobler race : this is an art Which does mend nature, change it rather, but The art itself is nature.
Side 66 - To the main objection of Dr. Young that all bodies would have the properties of solar phosphorus if light consisted in the undulations of ordinary matter, it may be answered that so many bodies have this property, and with so great variety in its duration, that non constat all may not have it, though for a time so short that the eye cannot detect its duration...
Side 227 - And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit-tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth : and it was so.
Side 257 - ... essential to make preliminary trials, in order to ascertain that these liquids are of the proper strengths. These trials I shall therefore now proceed to point out. I have already explained how the photographic image is made on the surface of the gelatine and covered with a thin layer of powdered copal or resin, which is then melted by holding the plate over a lamp.
Side 14 - It is so natural to associate the idea of labour with great complexity and elaborate detail of execution, that one is more struck at seeing the thousand florets of an Agrostis depicted with all its capillary branchlets (and so accurately, that none of all this multitude shall want its little bivalve calyx, requiring to be examined through a lens), than one is by the picture of the large and simple leaf of an oak or a chestnut. But in truth the difficulty is in both cases the same. The one of these...
Side 257 - ... will first state, that it can be very usefully employed in common etching ; that is to say, that if a plate of copper, steel, or zinc is covered with an etching ground, and lines are traced on it with a needle's point, so as to form any artistic subject; then, if the solution of perchloride of iron is poured on, it quickly effects an etching, and does this without disengaging bubbles of gas, or causing any smell ; for which reason it is much more convenient to use than aquafortis, and also because...
Side 153 - ... surface. The photographic impression is produced upon this prepared surface by the action of light passing through a negative photographic picture, or an engraving, or other suitable object, or screen, or in the camera obscura, and it is then washed with a sponge and a large quantity of water. The albumen or other organic matter is rendered insoluble at the parts where it has been acted upon by the light, and the design is thus produced in the color which has been employed.
Side 66 - Passing now to the effects of Electricity, every day brings us fresh evidence of the molecular changes effected by this agent. The electric discharge alters the constitution of many gases across which it is passed ; and it was shown, that by passing it through an attenuated atmosphere of the vapours of phosphorus, this element is changed by the electric discharge into its allotropic variety, which is deposited in notable quantity on the sides of the receiver. In this experiment, the transverse bands...
