None of the spellings, encyclopedia, encyclopaedia, or encyclopædia is formally a misspelling. Historically, however, the latter two represent a very old spelling mistake. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the spelling with the ae or æ is “pseudo-Greek” and “an erroneous form (said to be a false reading) occurring in MSS. of Quintilian, Pliny, and Galen”. The OED notes that the æ is not found in the original Greek enkyklios paideia for “encyclical education”, described as “the circle of arts and sciences considered by the Greeks as essential to a liberal education”.
The OED asserts that the spelling with æ “has been preserved from becoming obsolete by the fact that many of the works so-called have Latin titles, as Encyclopædia Britannica”. That particular encyclopedia includes the ligature form æ in its official name.
At least half the citations in the OED are for the so-called “incorrect” spelling. Neither the OED nor Webster’s Third New International Dictionary states a preference, although the British OED puts the æ form first, and the American Webster’s puts it second.”
