Johann Heinrich Zedler’s Universal-Lexicon aller Wissenschaften und Künste occupies a significant position in the long history of encyclopaedias. Published between 1732 and 1754, this massive work is not only the largest Germanophone encyclopaedia ever completed but is also priceless owing to its commitment to precision and reliability.
A monumental work of lexicography in 68 volumes
Despite of its age, and although damages of war and ravages of time already demolished many copies of the original edition, these volumes are still a classical standard work of lexicography. Students and scholars who are occupied with historical studies, above all genealogists and biographers, have to examine "the Zedler" again and again.
Someone who did not have an opportunity to make use of this compendium of baroque knowledge will hardly take it for granted that this comprehensive work also contains hitherto almost unevaluated material for many sections of science.
