  1. plural of cyclopædia
    • 1838, Henry James Johnson and James Johnson, The Medico‐Chirurgical Review and Journal of Medical Science, volume XXVIII, Periscope, page 469:
      The style of Dr. Quain is simple, clear, concise ; and he generally avoids that indescribable sort of composition which prevails so much in our medical cyclopædiæ and elementary works, and makes us doubt while we peruse it, whether it is really intended for English.
