[50 coloured plates / engraved by Martin Engelbrecht, from 18th-cent. German works. These are caricatures of different types of tradesmen and their wives, with the costume, tools, and apparatus of their craft. Among them are an apothecary, a spicer, and a spectacle-maker. The plates are similar to those in Larmessin's 'Album des métiers'. The artists include J.J. Stelzer, P.A. Dagmier, and P.F. Engelbrecht. All the plates except the first two have legends in French and German and appear to be from the same work].
