When you shut the doors of this grotto, it becomes, on the instant, from a luminous room, a camera obscura ; on the walls of which all the objects of the river, hills, woods, and boats, are forming a moving picture, in their visible radiations ; and when you have a mind to light it up, it affords you a very different scene.
