Local Notes
SPECIAL COLLECTIONS: Accompanying this set of the Encyclopédie is an additional vol. containing many original proof pages of articles with corrections in the hand of Diderot or the publisher, several specimen pages, manuscript pages, terms offered to subscribers, and documents and pamphlets relating to the publication and to the suit brought against the publishers by Pierre J.F. Luneau de Boisjermain. This vol. was presumably made up by André Le Breton, one of the editors of the Encyclopédie, who is known to have censored many of the articles by Diderot and other contributors. For additional information see: Gordon, D.H. and Torrey, N.L. Censoring of Diderot's Encyclopédie ... New York, Columbia University Press, 1947.

Bookplate of the Russian General Staff, dating from about 1840, pasted in each vol. Gordon Collection. Bookplate of Douglas Gordon. Gordon list, 527. This set was honored as the three-millionth volume acquired by the University of Virginia Library, 1988.
