Notes The portion of the encyclopedia containing information on carpentry of carriages and wheels. Contains 39 plates, missing plate 1 from the wheelwright section. Diderot’s Encyclopédie is an important and influential document of the Enlightenment. It was innovative in several respects. Among other things, it was the first encyclopedia to include contributions from many named contributors, and it was the first general encyclopedia to lavish attention on the mechanical arts. Still, the Encyclopédie is famous above all for representing the thought of the Enlightenment. According to Denis Diderot in the article \"Encyclopédie\", the Encyclopédie\'s aim was \"to change the way people think\".He wanted to incorporate all of the world\'s knowledge into the Encyclopédie and hoped that the text could disseminate all this information to the public and future generations.
