Other works of this name

A London Encyclopaedia (1829) in 22 volumes was edited by Thomas Curtis for Thomas Tegg. A complex copyright case against Tegg on behalf of the Encyclopedia Metropolitana was settled out of court, leaving unresolved claims that Tegg had pirated the lexicon of Charles Richardson, and the counter-claim that the Metropolitana had copied an encyclopedia the rights of which were now owned by Tegg, thought to be the Encyclopaedia Perthensis.
