1783Departure of Jacques Charles and Marie-Noel Robert's 'aerostatic globe' balloon from the Jardin des Tuileries, Paris, on Dec. 1, 1783. Drawing shows Jacques Charles and Nicolas Marie-Noel Robert standing in their hydrogen-filled balloon waving flags, beginning their ascent from the Tuileries Gardens, Paris, with the Versailles Palace in the background. Thousands of spectators are gathered in the foreground to witness the first manned gas balloon flight. Selected from a collection of images dedicated to early aeronautics from 1773 to 1909.

1784La physique confond l'ignorance Dedié aux souscripteurs. French cartoon shows a woman (Physics personified) whipping the bare bottom of one man (possibly Janinet) while another (possibly Abbé Miollan), walks away pulling up his trousers. In the background, men are inflating a balloon with hot air from a fire which apparently caused the balloon to ignite and enraged spectators who had paid admission to witness the ascent and who hastened the destruction of the balloon by fanning the flames and pulling it to pieces. The print appears to ridicule the attempt of Abbé Miollan and Janinet to ascend in a hot air balloon in Paris, France.

1903Verdadera imagen del Señor de Chalma. Broadside shows a statue of the crucified Christ. On the verso, accompanying text describes a miracle performed by the Lord of Chalma. Fidencio's father, Regino Esteves, had lost his faith in Catholicism and had become a Protestant. When he found his son praying to the Lord of Chalma, he threw Fidencio into a hot stove. The text says that, despite this tragedy, the child recovered without injury. As a witness to this miracle the father converted back to Catholicism. There are also two prayers on the verso, a morning prayer to the Lord of Chalma and another prayer made by the pilgrims who are leaving the shrine and saying goodbye to the Lord of Chalma. A smaller version of the recto image is printed on the verso. Credit: Antonio Vanegas Arroyo (Firm), publisher. Posada, José Guadalupe, 1852-1913. Collection: Popular Graphics Arts
