Conversations-Lexikon mit vorzüglicher Rücksicht auf die gegenwärtigen Zeiten

The Conversations-Lexikon mit vorzüglicher Rücksicht auf die gegenwärtigen Zeiten[1] (English: Encyclopaedia with Special Regard to the Present Times), was a German language encyclopedia published in Leipzig, Germany between 1796 and 1808.

The encyclopedia was published in 8 volumes and 2,762 pages. It was edited by Dr Renatus Gotthelf Löbel, who intended to supersede Johann Hübner by including geography, history, biography, mythology, philosophy, natural history, and other topics.[1] Volumes i-iv (A to R) appeared between 1796 and 1800, with vol. v appearing in 1806.[1] This work was acquired and completed by Friedrich Arnold Brockhaus in 1808 and formed the basis of the many editions of the Brockhaus Encyclopedia, which continued publication until 1 February 2014.
