Beautiful job,Craig. I love the work of artisans.
Love this! Especially the notion of “healthy paper.”
This is actually the first volume of Diderot’s famous Encylopedie, which eventually extended to 28 volumes with over 70,000 articles and 3,000 illustrations. The Encyclopedie is an epic expression of French Enlightenment thought, and the famous Tree of Life frontispiece is a visual depiction of Enlightenment philosophy, with all knowledge stemming from Reason and Science.ZSR is very lucky to have complete holdings of the first edition of the Encyclopedie in Special Collections!
I love this! Beautiful! (And–Tree of Knowledge!!!)
