These beautiful engravings have been selected from two celebrated masterpieces published across the 18th and 19th centuries: a German encyclopedia entitled "Bilderbuch fur Kinder", published in Weimar between 1790 and 1810 under the supervision of Friedrich Justin Bertuch
Friedrich Johann Justin Bertuch (1747-1822) was a successful entrepreneur and very much a man of the 18th century Enlightenment, sharing the general preoccupation of the age with the correct education of young, as well as the categorization of knowledge. In 1790, Bertuch began his major publishing project-- the first pictorial encyclopedia for children, a 12-volume work and a landmark in educational publishing whose vibrant illustrations are still admired today.
