The Eruption of Vesuvius

This image of Vesuvius is taken from the Dutch Natuurkundige Verhandelingen, of Verzameling van Stukken (1772-1777), a scientific periodical published in Amsterdam and offering the latest in European scientific findings for a Dutch-language audience. The Natuurkundige offered essays by authorities such as Buffon, Lavoisier, and Linnaeus, translated into Dutch. This recent acquisition is listed as accession number 21007, in the “Uncatalogued Acquisitions” database on the Beinecke Library web-site: http://www.library.yale.edu/beinecke.
