Did You Know? (57 Across) The Encyclopaedia Britannica was first published in Scotland in 100 parts from 1768 to 1771. The Encyclopedia Americana was compiled in 30 volumes in 1829. For generations, an encyclopedia in the Western world generally referred to a multi-volume reference work. Today, there are encyclopedias on CDs, DVDs, and Internet versions that exist only in cyberspace. The word encyclopedia derives from the Greek words enkyklios paideia, meaning "comprehensive education" and originally referred to a general education in all branches of knowledge, or a thorough education in one specific subject. The dictionary definition of encyclopedia is a comprehensive reference work made up of systematically arranged articles broadly covering the whole range of knowledge or treating of one particular field.
