Overview

A treasure trove of almost 12,000 detailed engravings, copyright-free and clearly reproducible, The Complete Encyclopedia of Illustration is a marvel of a collection culled from the worlds of science, history, geography, mythology, art, architecture, and more. Fully referenced, this volume is both an inspiration and a practical sourcebook for designers and artists. It also serves as a visual feast for admirers and collectors of old engravings, and stands as a tribute to the mid-nineteenth century artisans who created the original plates on which this book is based.
