Economic Encyclopaedia or General System of State, Urban, Household, and Agricultural Affairs in Alphabetical Order
In German language.
Vol. 72. Brünn , Georg Joseph Trasler, 1799.
The Economic Encyclopedia is a German-language encyclopedia created between 1773 and 1858 largely by Johann Georg Krünitz. It is considered an important source on the economy and technology of the period between Enlightenment and industrialization.
Volume 72. deals with the human body. Includes many very interesting and strange plates (see scans). Pp. 994. + 29 multiple folded plates with 30 (of 32?) copperplate engravings. Some engravings are misplaced, some not numbered. According to data on the title, 32 engravings should be present, but there are no traces of tearing or cutting. The content of the book apparently remained unchanged from the time when it was originally bound.
Size: 21 x 14 cm.
Binding: Period original half leather binding. Bumped and worn, some defects (see photos). Condition: some occasional spots due to paper aging, some pages with light water spots, minimal traces of use; a few cm tear to p. 519/520, a few plates a little wrinkled. A very good copy.
