These beautiful hand color engravings have been selected from a French work entitled "Encyclopédie Méthodique", published in Paris between 1789 and 1832 under the supervision of Panckoucke. This was the largest encyclopedia of the enlightenment, covering all aspects of the natural world, in the comprehensive mode that was very much the driving force of the era.

The Encyclopédie Méthodique par ordre des matières ("Methodical Encyclopedia by Order of Subject Matter") is a roughly 210 to 216 volumes encyclopedia (different sets were bound differently) that was published between 1782 and 1832 by the French publisher Charles Joseph Panckoucke his son-in-law Henri Agasse, and the latter´s wife, Thérèse-Charlotte Agasse. It was a revised and much expanded version, arranged by disciplines, of the originally alphabetically arranged Encyclopédie edited by denis Diderot and Jean Le Rond D'Alembert. The full title was L'Encyclopédie Méthodique ou par ordre de matières par une société de gens de lettres, de savants et d'artistes; précédée d'un vocabulaire universel, servant de table pour tout l'ouvrage, ornée des portraits de MM. Diderot et d'Alembert, premiers éditeurs de l'Encyclopédie.
Jean-Baptiste Pierre Antoine de Monet, Chevalier de la Marck (Bazentin, Somme, 1 August 1744 – Paris, 18 December 1829), often known simply as Lamarck, was one of the most famous French naturalists of the 18th century.
He took part in the war of The Seven Years with the Duke of Broglie. After abandoning the military career and returning to France, he settled in Paris, where he devoted himself to Medicine, Meteorology and Botany, for which he had as a master Bernard de Jussieu. He became well-known after the publication of the catalogue La Flore Française, written using the dichotomic keys, a new method invented by the same Lamarck. As the botanist of the king, he started a long trip through Europe, taking with him Buffon's son. When he returned, he worked at the Encyclopédie Méthodique, continuing D'Alembert and Diderot's work. After starting teaching at the Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle, he spent all his time devoting himself to Zoology, with a particular interest to fossils and living mollusks. The scientific world owes him the reorganization of the classification and distinction between Vertebrates and Invertebrates and the introduction of new species divisions, like Crustaceans, Arachnids and Annelids. The Encyclopédie Méthodique (Botanique 1789-1832), was his most famous work. It was originally published in 4 volumes, containing over 1000 plates, of which 28 by Redouté.
