The Prince de Conti's Planetary Clock. This remarkable Louis XVI Ormolu Planetary Clock (‘Sphère Mouvante’) — the movement by Jean-Michel Mabille and the sphere by Martin Baffert —circa 1770, is a tour de force of horological complexity. It is so charged with technology that it may be viewed as an elite 18th century equivalent of the innovative 21st century products of Silicon Valley or the best watchmakers of today.

This air pump by George Adams, instrument maker to the king, is the centrepiece of the pneumatics apparatus commisioned by George III in 1761. The arrangement of valves is copied from a pump made about 10 years earlier by John Smeaton, who later became famous as a civil engineer. The air pump can be used to remove air from a container - to show the effects of a vacuum, for example. Alternatively, it can be used to pump air into a container.

Two metal buttons showing an enema treatment, Germany, C 1701 (?) "An enema introduces liquids such as medications or purgatives into the body via the rectum – a once very common medical procedure. This enema was clearly aimed at flushing out the body as the button on the right shows the patient on a chamber pot watched by the physician. Not much is known about why the buttons were made or who might have worn them." Wellcome Institute
