A very cool astronomy engraving from the famous Diderot Encyclopedia, c. 1790. This original antique measures 9 3/4 x 7 1/2 inches (24 x 19 cm) with age foxing (spots) to the cream background (see images). Feel free to reach out if you're interested in framing services for this print - we'd love to brainstorm options with you.

Denis Diderot (cofounder and editor of the encyclopedia) was a French philosopher, writer and art critic. He published material in the encyclopedia that was quite controversial at the time (i.e religion, natural law). The Diderot Encyclopedia is also well known for it's focus on science and the mechanical arts.
