Scientific volume

Ars Magna Lucis et Umbrae. Athanasius Kircher. Italy, 1646. Reg. 02334

In this book dedicated to optics, astronomy, eclipses, comets and other phenomena, Kircher makes mention of a mirror that reflects an image on a screen throught a lens, though this was not a magic lantern. In the second edition of the volume in 1671 he did include a description of the lantern when it had previously been described by others writers.
