Denis Diderot's The encyclopedia : selections by Denis Diderot( Book )
1 edition published in 1985 in French and held by 58 libraries worldwide
"Diderot's great 'Encyclopédie' was one of the Enlightenment's crowning achievements, a monumental illustrated record of European arts and sciences just prior to the Industrial Revolution. Among its glories are its copperplate engravings, supreme examples of both the illustrator's and the engraver's art. This beautiful book brings together a rich selection of plates from the 'Encyclopédie', all of them devoted to architecture and its related arts, crafts and trades. Here are elegant renderings of the magnificent colonnade of the Louvre; projected elevations and floor plans for the church and abbey of the Panthemont in Paris, the grand Hôtel de Ville in Rouen and the San Carlo Opera House in Naples; drawings and plans for windmills and bridges; renderings of palatial interiors, luxuriously carved furnishings, statuary and exterior architectural detailing; elevations and floor plans for many well-known European theaters and much more. Here, too, are superbly executed scenes of 18th-century craftsmen at work in the building trades - stonecutters, carpenters, masons and more - and the enormous range of tools and materials involved in their work. These rare views of the grand architectural visions of the Baroque and Rococo eras and the technology that brought them to life will be invaluable to all students and enthusiasts of the architectural and decorative arts, history, sociology and industrial technology. Graphic artists and designers in search of authentic, copyright-free images of the art and life of the 18th century will find this book an essential source of illustrations as well"--Back cover
