It took Diderot and d’Alembert from 1751 until 1772 to catalogue the “infinitely varied branches” of human knowledge in their Encyclopédie. Less well known is the Encyclopédie méthodique. Begun in Paris by Charles-Joseph Panckoucke in 1782, then edited by his son-in-law Henri Agasse, and finally by his daughter Pauline Agasse, the “supreme encyclopaedia” is made up of over 200 volumes with approximately 6500 plates. Put on sale by subscription in the reign of Louis XVI, continued during the Revolution and the Empire despite inflation and political troubles, and only finished in 1832 under the July monarchy, the completed Encyclopédie méthodique is five times longer than Diderot and d’Alembert’s 25000 pages. The present work gets to grips with the epistemological complexity of the fifty specialized dictionaries that make up the Méthodique, the last encyclopaedia of the Enlightenment.
