This family was inspired by an engraved plate from Diderot & Dalembert’s Encyclopedia (publication beginning in 1751), illustrating the chapter devoted to letter engraving techniques. The plate bears two engravers names : “Aubin” (may be one of the four St Aubin brothers ?)and “Benard” ( which name is present below all plates of the Encyclopedia printed in Geneva ). It seems to be a transitional type, but different from Fournier or Grandjean.
