By pure chance I have found a Wikimedia Commons page with plates from the Encyclopédie:
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Josep ... int-George
Escrime, Planches de l'Encyclopédie Diderot & D'Alembert (15 plates, 48 illustrations)
These illustrations also can be found at http://www.planches.eu/planche.php?nom=ESCRIME

In the Emil Fick's library topic there are two references for Diderot:
1. Diderot, Denis
D’Almbert, Jean le Rond (correctly: D'Alembert)
Escrime
Paris: n.n., n.d. [c. 1765 ?]
15 p. ; ill., [15] pls.
Volume 5 of the Encyclopaedia

2. Diderot, Denis
D’Almbert, Jean le Rond
Encyclopédie méthodique. Arts académiques, equitation, escrime, danse, et art de nager
Paris: Panckoucke & Liège: Plomteux, 1786
445 p. ; ill., [11 double spread pls. On fencing
Volume 5 of the Encyclopaedia

The first book presumably contains only the illustrations (15 pages with 15 plates), the second book is the same book that you have linked. So it seems to me that it is the later edition of Volume 5 of the Encyclopaedia.

Carl Thimm's A Complete Bibliography of Fencing mentions Diderot (page 79):
Diderot et d'Alembert, Encyclopédie des sciences. Tome 5, 1775, Paris with a French remark:
"Il reproduit le traité d'escrime d'Angelo Malevolti die Livourne" Angelo (D), 1787
So it seems that Volume 5 contains a version of Angelo's fencing treatise. And indeed, after checking the illustrations I'm convinced that this is the case.

Arts académiques... = Volume 5 of the Encyclopaedia = Angelo's The School of Fencing (1787)

One interesting illustration is missing from Angelo's The School of Fencing, from the last plate (15th), Fig. 48 (fencing equipment):
