Mechanical Powers according to the latest Improvements, including White’s Patent Concentric Pulley

Description
This engraving illustrated the “System of Mechanics” article in the second volume of William Henry Hall, The New Royal Encyclopaedia, or Complete Modern Dictionary of Arts and Sciences (London, 1788). The “Blake delin.” signature in the lower left probably refers to William Blake (1757-1827), a noted English poet, painter, and printmaker. The “Lodge sculp.” signature in the lower right is probably that of John Lodge, a London engraver.
