    Notes: This encyclopedia includes all the knowledge of the time concerning the "natural sciences", a broad term, also grouping together scientific disciplines on materials, physics, chemistry or technology. The attention that Georges Louis Leclerc gives to internal anatomy places him among the precursors of comparative anatomy: "L'intérieur, dans les êtres vivants, est le fond du dessin de la nature" (the interior, in living beings, is the basis of nature's design), he writes in Quadrupèdes. The 580 magnificent intaglio engravings that comprise these 15 volumes were made by Jacques de Sève regarding quadrupeds.

    Other information: Beautiful Ex libris of the Duke of Híjar and at the bottom of the spine gilt iron with the surname "Ulloa".
