Summer Intermission: "Travels in the Air"

James Glaisher, pioneer balloonist and meteorologist, published his account of Travels in the Air in 1871.

I have a fast approaching deadline, and must put aside my blog for a while.  So I leave you with these illustrations from his book,  conjuring up long summer evenings, for you to enjoy.
