in a Single Image
In these images the illustrator tries to sum up the one cylic industrial
process in the single image without recourse to a diagram.
der Aa's Zee-en Landreizen , Amsterdam 1727, a treatise
on the sugar industry of the West Indies, here a sugar mill at work in
one cyclic image.
LOWER T.B., A Compendious Account of Breeding and Nursing and
the Right Ordering of the Silk Worm , London 1710. The illustration
shows the worms brought to the mulberry leaf for feeding in the factory.
The illustrator has taken great pains to make the image as realistic as
possible with the reactions of the figures and the presence of the little
boy. There is a most efficient compression of the working environment
into the frame of the illustration.
RIGHT from another perpective, a treatise on silkmaking written by Jean
Bonoeil, representing the growth and flight of the silk worm to moth.
