Anonymous:What is the difference between encyclopedia and cyclopedia? Why was encyclopedia once was called cyclopedia?
Cyclopaedia: or, An Universal Dictionary of Arts and Sciences (two volumes in folio ) was anencyclopedia published by Ephraim Chambers in London in 1728, and reprinted in numerous editions in the eighteenth century. The Cyclopaedia was one of the first general encyclopedias to be produced in English.
But when these two words are both refered to reference books in a group concept, do they mean the same thing? Are they interchangeable?
