John Mason Good

John Mason Good (1764-1827) was an English physician. He wrote about wide ranging subjects and made one of the most beautiful encyclopedias.

The British National Dictionary of Biography says "no man could be more conscientious or industrious than Good. He had a striking power of acquiring knowledge and of arranging it in an orderly fashion."

Good used this talent to create a superb, illustrated encyclopedia.

Named "Pantologia", this rare encyclopedia contained excellent illustrations by leading artists. The illustrations were beautiful hand coloured engravings.

Here are some of the engravings for you to choose from. They are genuine antiques, made in ~1806.
