    the sources by which the artists of these illustrations inspired.

    The present study aims at demonstrating how archaism has been expressed in illustrations of this copy as well as searching the sources by which the artists of these illustrations inspired.

    "... by which the artists of these illustrations were inspired." "... sources which inspired the artists of these illustrations."
    What does "copy" mean here? Do you mean illustrations in a book?

    Then I would use "this book". "This copy" tends to mean only one individual instance of the book. I assume that the illustrations are made for the whole edition, not just for one copy.

    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
