J. G. Heck
Based on J. G. Heck's Bilder Atlas zum Convenations Lexicon, released in German within the 19th century, the Iconographic Encyclopaedia of technological know-how, Literature, and Art was once a enormous six-volume compilation of illustrations and data, masking a big variety of matters, from structure to zoology. between its so much impressive positive aspects have been the hundreds of thousands of fantastic metal engravings, comprising some of the most huge pictorial records ever released in one work.
The current e-book, one in every of 3 separate and self sufficient volumes in line with the infrequent unique American version of 1851, is dedicated to nature and technological know-how. Over a hundred and seventy superbly reproduced plates comprise millions of illustrations depicting a unprecedented array of topics: mathematical and geometrical difficulties; surveying tools, astronomical maps, and tools; planetary platforms in accordance with Ptolemy, the Egyptians, Copernicus, and others; positions of the planets; botanical illutrations of ratings of crops — together with seed pods, end result, and different components; actual and meteorological representation demonstrating many legislation and ideas; a number of sorts of actual and chemical gear; animals, minerals, fossils, geological formations; human anatomy; and lots of different photos. A descriptive desk of contents is keyed to numbered illustrations on each one plate.
Artists, illustrators, and someone short of accurately rendered, royalty-free technological know-how or nature illustrations will welcome this essentially inexhaustible wealth of instantly usable art.
