About this Item

5 vols.: Vol. 1: xli, 755; Vol. 2: 756-1543; Vol. 3: 1544-2323; Vol. 4: 2324-3115; Vol. 5: 304 p. 18 cm. 3115 plates. Vol. 1 has frontispiece. Some plates reproduced in index. In slipcase. Blue leather with light blue cloth. Gold impressing on spines. In bloth cloth box with label residue on top and some soiling, mainly to bottom. Blue ribbon included. The Encyclopédie was published in France between 1751 and 1772, with later supplements, revised editions, and translations. Edited by Denis Diderot and Jean le Rond d'Alembert, the Encyclopédie is famous above all for representing the thought of the Enlightenment. The plates were an important part of disseminating the new scientific ideas of the age. Here are the fabulous anatomical drawings, architectural plans, tool illustrations, world maps, animals and plants that summarize knowledge as it was at the time. A philosophical skeleton appears on p. 90 and an almost accurate map of Canada on pp. 3050-3051. Bookseller Inventory # 105253
