A man leans over a table with his cheeks puffed out to blow out a candle placed behind a bottle. This picture illustrates the principle according to which the bottle wouldn’t stop the candle from being blown out by the experimenter.
The caption reads in the original French:
Manière d’éteindre une bougie placée derrière une bouteille.
