Nikolaus Otto, German engineer

Nikolaus August Otto (1832-1891), German engineer. Otto invented or worked on several early internal combustion engines, including one in 1862 and the Otto-Langen engine of 1864. The most successful was the Otto Silent Engine (or Rings-Schumm engine) of 1876. Using in-cylinder compression and the principle of the Otto cycle, it forms the basis of modern car engines. This photograph is courtesy of the Otto Engine Company, Philadelphia, USA. It was published in 'The Epic of Industry' (1926), volume 5 of 'The Pageant of America: A Pictorial History of the United States'. This was a 15-volume series that commemorated 150 years since the founding of the USA in 1776

Die-back of Ash (Fraxinus excelsior Featured 26 Jan 2014 Print

Die-back of Ash (Fraxinus excelsior

Common ash, Fraxinus excelsior, growing in Ashwellthorpe Wood, Norfolk in September 2013. The brown foliage hanging from the stem in the centre of the picture has died as a result of fungal infection by Hymenoscyphus pseudoalbidus ( also known as Chalara fraxinea ). The affected stem is regrowth from a coppice stool. It will die back to the base.Ash die-back disease was first confirmed in the natural environment in 2012 in the East of England. In May 2013 an occurrence was confirmed in South West Wales. Spread is thought to occur by wind over short distances (up to several kilometres); over longer distances, by the movement of infected tree stock.F. excelsior produces large amounts of seed, which offers an opportunity for the selection of progeny resistant to the disease. However, the fungus also produces sexually, and so may be able to mutate to overcome such resistance

This set dates from around the year 1870, England
