Copperplate Engravings - Denis Diderot and Jean le Rond d'Alembert - Artist's Drawing Series - 18th Century Prints

One of my favorite print sellers on eBay USA has apparently found a copy of Diderot and d'Alembert's Encyclopedie ou Dictionnaire Raisonne des Sciences, des Arts et Metiers, dismantled it into separate sheets and is listing them separately for sale. I was especially interested in the section dedicated to the series used in the training of 18th century Artists. I have a few of the prints in my collection. You might want to take a look at the illustrations of the 18th century studio for models and the materials used for drawing.
