Fortunato Bartolomeo De Felice (edited by). Encyclopédie, ou Dictionnaire universel raisonné des connaissances humaines. Ordered by M. de Felice. Yverdon 1770 / 1780, complete with all 58 volumes. Extremely rare original edition of the first Protestant encyclopedia, the famous Encyclopedia Yverdon published between 1770 and 1780 in 58 volumes in quarto. Founded on the rules of Diderot, it was the first encyclopedic system of knowledge. The entire work of the Encyclopedia was elaborated by a team of European scholars who took refuge in Switzerland to escape the intolerance of absolutism led by the Italian scholar Fortunato Bartolomeo De Felice (1723-1789), an Italian intellectual and publisher exiled in Geneva. The Encyclopedia of Yverdon thus ended up being much less provincial and characterized by a more European scope. In the end the content revealed a deeply Protestant worldview, so much so that it had the alternative name of "Protestant Encyclopedia" and a great success in northern Europe.
Complete work with all 58 volumes (42 volumes of text, 6 volumes of supplements and 10 volumes of plates). Beautiful half leather binding. Gold titles and numbering on a label on the spine. Large vignette engraved on all title pages. The 10 volumes of plates contain 1262 engravings on copper (of which 139 are on double page). Large volumes 28×21 cm, about 700 pages per volume. In excellent condition.
The volumes were checked and collated.
