Diderot on Chasing Tools and Workshop

Diderot on Chasing Tools and Workshop

ByCharles Lewton-Brain

This is a reproduction of Diderot's famous French Encyclopaedia from 1751. There are three pages, a title page, a descriptive key page to the images and a page that has an engraving of a chasing and damascening workshop along with a plate showing chasing tools and chisels as well as some typical workshop tools. After the reproduction comes a new section: the translation of the workplace descriptions and the tool key into English, with the proper English chasing terms used for the tools. A variety of tools are named.
