Illustrated with over three-hundred copperplate engravings, this four-volume encyclopedic dictionary affords a glimpse into eighteenth-century advancements in art and science. George Washington proudly adhered his bookplate in each of the four volumes and autographed each title page.

For George Washington's other volumes from this series, see W-1093/A, W-1093/B, and W-1093/D.
