Product details Submarine diving suit

Submarine diving suit

William Barlow

View of a diver, through a section of a proposed diving suit. The diver is shown working on the sea-bed, his body encased but his arms protruding through the suit to work with a tool ["the arm-ports lined with sticking Plaister..." according to the supporting text]. The suit has a glass viewing port and is supplied with air by a tin tube with an outlet near the diver's face and the whole is tethered by a rope. From the manuscript paper "The submarine, an engine for conveying air under water", by William Barlow. Not signed. Royal Society Register Book Original, vol.19 1734-1736, pp.442-446. The paper was read before the Royal Society on 27 May 1736.

Original: ink on paper. 1736
