The Enlightenment’s most-important general encyclopedia!

 

Through the mid-18th-century, large collections of knowledge were relegated to specific areas of study like law, medicine, or religion. However, Denis Diderot’s ‘Encyclopedie’ changed the public’s knowledge base as well as setting a standard for future generations of acquiring knowledge on many different subjects. This was the first encyclopedia to include contributions from many different named writers. It also was the first encyclopedia to describe work-related topics like agriculture, engineering, cooking, and trade.

 

This tome is the complete third volume of illustrations from the 1779 edition of Diderot and d’Alembert’s famous encyclopedia. It features 130 full-page and folding engravings covering a wide variety of topics including human anatomy, surgery and medicine, military and war, art and architecture, chemistry, and music and theater.
