Buchbeschreibung Longman Group Limited, London, first edition, 1971, 1971. Cloth, 8vo, 23 cm, xii, 430 pp, 9 plates. From the blurb: "A complete survey of this historic French work - its writing, publication, problems and implications for the philosophical, religious, political and social life of pre-revolutionary France. This is a scholarly reference work, based on Professor Lough's exhaustive research on the subject, yet interesting and stimulating to the lay reader. The first three chapters deal with the origins of the work, the long struggle for its publication, and with the contributors and subscribers. The remaining six chapters will be of particular interest to students of eighteenth century France who seek an examination of the place of the Encyclopédie in the thought of the age. The first of these examines the question as to how far the Encyclopédie was intended as a work of reference and how far as a vehicle for propaganda for the ideas of the Philosophes. Contemporary critics of the work have a chapter to themselves; although most of the reactions were hostile, it is essential, in order to understand the significance of the Encyclopédie to see how it appeared to men of the age. Finally, four substantial chapters are devoted to a study of the ideas of philosophy, religion, politics and society which are found in the Encyclopédie. In these four key chapters, and throughout the book, readers are given a first-hand view of the outlook of the contributors by quotations from their articles; quotations from the writings of contemporary critics are included to enable the reader to understand the true meaning of the articles in their eighteenth century context."
