Copper engraved allegorical frontispiece "Desmarets delineavit, Franciscus Landry sculpsit"

Condition: Very good
Language: French
Edition: Reprint
Publication year: 1725
Author: Louis Moréri
Book Title: Le Grand Dictionnaire historique ou le melange...
Number of Books: 1
Publisher: Chez Denys Mariette, Paris
Binding: Loose page

Sheet size approx 38.5 x 22.5 cm, from Louis Moréri, "Le Grand Dictionnaire historique ou le melange curieux de l'histoire sacree et profane [...] Nouvelle et derniere edition revue, corrigée et augmentée. Edité par Paris chez Denys Mariette 1725".
Allegorical frontispiece of the 1725 Paris edition of the work by Moreri, published for the first time in Lyon in 1674. Copy on laid paper with watermark (cluster), in very good condition, but with remnants of a red cardboard double back that do not affect the engraved part.
Initially published in a volume, the work is the first great French dictionary, an encyclopedia especially rich, both geographically that historically, that has had numerous reprints and extensions after the author's death.

Translated into German, English, Dutch, Spanish and Italian, it has inspired a number of similar dictionaries in both Germany and England.
Seeing in this a work full of errors, of unsubstantiated ideas, of facts constantly repeated and never occurred, Pierre Bayle, starting from 1696, designed his Dictionnaire historique et critique.
