Description

Engraving by Benard from drawings by Belin, naval engineer. From 'Marine', a work on ships and shipbuilding, by Denis Diderot (1713-1784), published in Paris in 1765, an excerpt from 'Encyclopedie, ou Dictionnaire Raisonne des Sciences, des Arts et des Metiers', edited by Diderot and Jean d'Alembert (1717-1783). The 'Grand Encyclopedie' (Encyclopedia or Dictionary of the Sciences, Arts and Profesions) was a manifesto for a new way of looking at the world. It described many of the proceses which transformed the world during the Industrial Revolution.
