Portrait of Gerard Edelinck by his son Nicolas

Nicolas-Étienne Edelinck (9 April 1681 - 11 May 1767), a French engraver, was born to a family of engravers in Paris, the eighth son of Gérard Edelinck.[1] Although he had the advantage of his father's instruction, and of studying in Italy, he never rose above mediocrity. He engraved some portraits, and a few plates for the Crozat Collection. He died in Paris in 1768. Among other prints by him are the following:
