Doolittle, James. “Robert James,
Diderot, and the Encyclopédie.”
Modern Language Notes, vol. 71, no. 6, Johns Hopkins University Press, 1956, pp. 431–34. JSTOR, JSTOR, doi:10.2307/3043164.
Prior to coming on as editor of the Encyclopédie, Diderot worked as a translator and one of his biggest accomplishments was a collaborative translation from English into French of Robert James’s Medicinal Dictionary. Doolittle, in his reading of the
Encyclopédie has noticed (and shared) instances where James’s dictionary is quoted or borrowed from but admits his inability to run a complete study on the similarities and recognizes that a more in-depth analysis is required to make any large conclusions.
