A gentleman named Matt Keveney launched the website, 507movements.com, with all original illustrations from the 1868 book, Five Hundred and Seven Mechanical Movements by Henry T. Brown. Keveney has animated some of the examples very elegantly. It’s a fabulous site. Beautiful to peruse and total educative.

Remember these? There’s one in the Pratt library. I always love seeing it.
