La prima edizione risale al 1751 quando fu pubblicato il primo volume. L'opera continuò ad uscire per anni fino a raggiungere i 17 volumi di articoli scritti dai più autorevoli studiosi del tempo: Voltaire, Rousseau, D'Alembert, Marmontel solo per citarne qualcuno. Le planches vennero alla luce 11 anni dopo la prima edizione dell'enciclopedia, dal 1762 fino al 1772 raggiungendo gli 11 volumi.
