聽聽聽聽聽聽two-volume, alphabetically arranged encyclopaedia compiled and edited by the English encyclopaedist Ephraim Chambers (Chambers, Ephraim) and first published in 1728. The work treated the arts and sciences; names of persons or places were not included. Seven editions had been published in London by 1751鈥52. The materials for seven additional volumes were published in two folio volumes in 1753 as a Supplement after having been reworked first by John Lewis Scott and then by John Hill after the death of Chambers.
