Pankoucke was, from 1768 onwards, the official publisher of both the Imprimerie Royale and the Académie Royale des Sciences. At the end of the 18th Century he became the dominant figure in French publishing. In 1768 he became involved in the famous Encyclopédie from Diderot and d’Alembert publishing the supplementary volumes and doing, on the whole, very good business. Deveria, a small publisher from Lille, was the originator of the idea to eradicate the weaknesses and mistakes in the Encyclopédie with a new methodical work, the Encyclopédie méthodique. At first Pankoucke ridiculed this project but then sensing serious competition he took over the idea and made it his own and in the end calling the new Encyclopédie: un superbe ouvrage et la vraie Encyclopédie. The first volumes of the Encyclopédie méthodique were published in Paris and Lille (by Plomteux) in 1782. After 1790 it was only published in Paris.
A complete set of the dictionnary consist of 206 volumes. The Encyclopédie méthodique contains circa 125,350 pages of text with circa 6,300 tables. Thus it is five times as long as the Encyclopédie from Diderot and d’Alembert (25,000 pages).
