One of the items featured on the table is a gas bag. They were usually made from sheep’s bladders and would have been connected to a glass apparatus holding boiling liquid, allowing the gas to collect inside them. A tube (controlled by a gas tap on the bag) would then have allowed the gas to be used or inhaled. www.flickr.com Credit: Paul Wilkinson
"On breathing the Nitrous Oxide" - a poem by Humphry Davy: Not in the ideal dreams of wild desire Have I beheld a rapture wakening form My bosom burns with no unhallowed fire Yet is my cheek with rosy blushes warm Yet are my eyes with sparkling lustre filled Yet is my mouth implete with murmuring sound Yet are my limbs with inward transports thrill'd And clad with new born mightiness round — www.flickr.com The poem reads: Not in the ideal dreams of wild desire Have I beheld a rapture wakening form My bosom burns with no unhallowed fire Yet is my cheek with rosy blushes warm Yet are my eyes with sparkling lustre filled Yet is my mouth implete with murmuring sound Yet are my limbs with inward transports thrill'd And clad with new born mightiness round —
