These engravings display tools and architectural elements relating to cabinetry and inlay work (marquetry) and were originally published as part of the landmark work Encyclopédie méthodique par ordre des matières, by the French publisher Charles Joseph Panckoucke. The set was published in several editions between 1782 and 1832. Included are four single-page plates and four continuous sheet, facing page plates. The engraver is credited as Benard. Seven of the engravings are housed in modern picture frames (glass lacking in two). These plates show beautifully with bright paper and only light age/wear indications.
