Helmut Zedelmaier explores the early encyclopaedia as knowledge management tool, and the part played in its development by the index, discusses the role of the printing press in the development of the index, asks why the index declined in the 18th century, and identifies topics for consideration when some future history of the book index comes to be written. This article was translated by Andrew Horne.
