Item Description: Encyclopaedia Britannica, Inc., Chicago, London, Toronto, Geneva, Sydney, Tokyo., 1952. Full Cloth. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. 54 Volumes complete. FIRST EDITION. This is bound in two toned cloth covered boards, top edge gilt, all volumes have a hint of wear at the edges but each is very tight and seemingly unread. These book are NOT exlibrary. Overall in VERY GOOD condition. A good gift. Photos available upon request. The Great Books of the Western World is a series of books originally published in the United States in 1952 by Encyclopædia Britannica Inc. in an attempt to present the western canon in a single package of 54 volumes. The project got its start at the University of Chicago. University president Robert Hutchins collaborated with Mortimer Adler to develop a course, generally aimed at businessmen, for the purpose of filling in gaps in education, to make one more well-rounded and familiar with the "Great Books" and ideas of the past three millennia. Among the original students was William Benton, future US Senator and then CEO of the Encyclopædia Britannica. It was he who proposed a series of books presenting the greatest works of the canon, complete and unabridged, to be edited by Hutchins and Adler and published by Encyclopædia Britannica. Hutchins was wary, fearing that the works would be sold and treated as encyclopedias, cheapening the great books they were. Nevertheless, he was persuaded to agree to the project. After several debates about what was to be included and how the work was to be presented, and the budget exploding to two million, the project was ready for publication. It was presented at a gala at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City on April 15, 1952. In a speech made that night, Hutchins said "This is more than a set of books, and more than a liberal education. Great Books of the Western World is an act of piety. Here are the sources of our being. Here is our heritage. This is the West. This is its meaning for mankind." It was decided that the first two volumes would be presented to Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom and U.S. President Harry S. Truman. Originally published in 54 volumes, The Great Books of the Western World covers categories including fiction, history, poetry, natural science, mathematics, philosophy, drama, politics, religion, economics, and ethics. The first volume, titled The Great Conversation, contains an introduction and discourse on liberal education by Hutchins. The next two volumes, "The Great Ideas: A Syntopicon", were conceived by Adler as a way of emphasizing the unity of the set and, by extension, of Western thought in general. A team of indexers spent months compiling references in all the works to such topics as "Man's freedom in relation to the will of God" and "The denial of void or vacuum in favor of a plenum". They were grouped into 102 chapters, for which Adler wrote 102 introductions. The volumes have different color-coding on the spines denoting the various categories. Titles include: Vol. 1 - The Great Conversation; Vol. 2 - The Great Ideas I; Vol. 3 - The Great Ideas II; Vol. 4 - Homer; Vol. 5 - Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripes, Aristophanes; Vol. 6 - Herodotus, Thucydides; Vol. 7 - Plato; Vol. 8 - Aristotle I; Vol. 9 - Aristotle II; Vol. 10 - Hippocrates, Galen; Vol. 11 - Euclid, Archimedes, Apollonius, Nicomachus; Vol. 12 - Lucretius, Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius; Vol. 13 - Virgil; Vol. 14 - Plutarch; Vol. 15 - Tacitus; Vol. 16 - Ptolemy, Copernicus, Kepler; Vol. 17 - Plotinus; Vol. 18 - Saint Augustine; Vol. 19 - Thomas Aquinas I; Vol. 20 - Thomas Aquinas II; Vol. 21 - Dante; Vol. 22 - Chaucer; Vol. 23 - Machiavelli, Hobbes; Vol. 24 - Rabelais; Vol. 25 - Montaigne; Vol. 26 - William Shakespeare I; Vol. 27 - William Shakespeare II; Vol. 28 - Gilbert, Galileo, Harvey; Vol. 29 - Cervantes; Vol. 30 - Francis Bacon; Vol. 31 - Descartes, Spinoza; Vol. 32 - Milton; Vol. 33 - Pascal; Vol. 34 - Newton, Huygens; Vol. 35 - Locke, Berkeley, Hume; Vol. 36 - Jonathan Swift, Sterne; Vol. 37 - Henry Fielding; Vol. 38 - Montesquieu, Rousseau; Vol. 39 - Adam Smith; Vol. 40 - Edward Gibbon I.

Item Description: The Encyclopedia Britannica, Chicago, 1976. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. This handsome, complete 20-volume set is in Fine condition. Most volumes appear to be unread. It also includes an oversized Near-Fine paperback, Introduction. This Introduction volume also contains the Contents of all 20 volumes and an Index of Authors and Sources. The Encyclopedia Britannica published this edition in 1976, just in time for America's Bicentennial celebration. Each book is bound in blue leatherette with "The Annals of America" blindstamped on the front panel, with gilt titles and borders on the spine (click on photo). The Introduction makes clear that this set is composed of a documentary rather than a narrative history. (If you're aware of the current textbook controversy, you will know that today's history books are often written by those with a strong political bias. However, these annals supply independent readers with the actual first-hand narratives themselves, thus allowing readers to come to their own conclusions and to make their own interpretations.) The more than 1,000 authors were living and breathing recorders of their own remarkable times, starting with Christopher Columbus' "Discovery of the New World," which he wrote in 1493. The books include drawings, paintings, photographs, and maps throughout. Each volume measures 6 ½ by 9 ½ inches. Page numbering varies, generally running between 500 to 700 pages per volume. Due to the 48-pound weight, books will be shipped in two separate boxes. Domestic Media Mail shipping costs should come to around $28.00. (NOTE: International buyers should email me in advance of ordering, since shipping costs may be quite costly.). Bookseller Inventory # 002040

DJ: unclipped in Brodart, black, reverse titles all surfaces; modest wear, esp to corners and spine points, 1+" closed tear front, head/heel tatterd, small chip heel, spinelightly tanned, small abrasion spine. Fascinating early work on ethical and other issues of a rapidly growing art form and business of the day. Major work on "The moral, the political, and the aesthetic aspects of the motion picture." Flap generally compares this to Aristotle's "Poetics"! (albiet, stating a direct comparison is too ambitious). This is a copy sent to Dr. Prall by Cornell's Philosophical Review, a review slip w/ tissue guard marked "Rc'd 3/18/37" and requesting an 800-word review is tipped in ffep. Pencil underlinings and annotations in Dr. Prall's hand are throughout - on the ffep he notes dates of several publications in the summer of 1937 (NY Times, Syndney Herald, Lewis Mumford in the New Republic).
