Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of illustration credits of the figures that occur in the book Child of the Enlightenment. Shifting one's perspective to that of an eighteenth-century child is a long and laborious undertaking. We did not realise this at first when we were handed a stack of old notebooks, written initially in a large scrawl that gradually evolved, over the course of several years, into more practised penmanship. Covering the period 1791-1797, they turned out to be a child's diary, begun at the age of ten by a boy named Otto van Eck. This unique body of writing allowed us to explore the eighteenth century through the eyes of a child, an experience that required us to become thoroughly acquainted with his world. Otto grew up at a time when the ideals of the Enlightenment were becoming concrete enough to be put into practice.
