A supplement to Mr. Chambers's cyclopædia, or, Universal dictionary of arts and sciences

  • 1753
London: Printed for W. Innys and J. Richardson, R. Ware, J. and P. Knapton, [and 13 others]
  • Edited by George Lewis Scott; "Most of the Supplement is the work of John Hill. However the freedom with which he transcribed from his own writings and those of others, was not favourable either to the reputation of the work, or to the interests of the proprietors." Cf. ESTC.
  • Engraved plates by J. Mynde, mainly natural history; Title pages in red and black; a variant has title pages all in black.
