According to example 14.248 on page 755 of the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition the following would be used:
When it is a well-known work, such as the Encyclopedia Britannica
#. Encyclopedia Title, Edition number ed., s.v. "entry name"
Note: s.v. stands for sub verbo, under the word.
To list a work with publication details:
#. Encyclopedia Title, comp. Editor's Name (Place of publication: Publisher, year), s.v. "entry name"
