This book reminds me of how much fun I used to have reading through encyclopedias and illustrated dictionaries when I was a child: yes, I was that kid. The illustrations of various trades and occupations are remarkably detailed for their small size and woodcut print technology.

To learn more about 18th-century trades, see the special issue of the journal Eighteenth-Century Fiction entitled "Trades/Le Négoce."
