Sixteenth-Century Fireworks

From a manuscript of 1594 titled  Büchsenmeister und Feuerwerksbuch (Gunsmithing and Fireworks), by Friedrich Meyer. Other pages show detailed drawings of the fire boxes used to create these theatrical effects.


I leave this one to your imagination.

Love these flaming dragons, especially the one rigged to fly along a suspended rope.

From BibliOdyssey.
