"A Very Perfect View of the New Caloric Ship, Ericsson"
This is an illustration from the February 12, 1853 issue of Gleason's pictorial drawing-room companion of the ship John Ericsson designed to use his caloric engine. The 260 foot paddle ship, powered by his four cylinder caloric engine, was called the Ericsson. The ship was not a success, and unfortunately for Ericsson it sank in a storm off of New York.
