James Sowerby

Two specimens of Denbigh coal from Denbighshire in Wales, here termed 'oxygenized carbon'. Plate 49 from British mineralogy: or coloured figures intended to elucidate the mineralogy of Great Britain, by James Sowerby, volume 1 (London, R.Taylor & Co., 1804). The accompanying text states that "There is little doubt of the Denbigh caol being nearly as pure an oxide of carbon as is likely to be found...fracture and the prismatic hues for which this coal is famous, have naturally gained it the appellation of Peacock coal..." The plate is inscribed: "Novr. 1 1803. Published by Jas. Sowerby, London.

Original: engraving. 1803
