André Jacob Roubo . He wrote a highly influential complete treatise on woodworking that covers practically all the associated trades. This multi-volume work, L’Art du Menuisier (The Art of the Joiner), published between 1769 and 1774 by the Académie des Sciences, contains sections and illustrations on: building carpentry, furniture making, and precious woodworking (ébénisterie), carriage making, and garden woodworking.

estimate: $4000 to $6000 :)
