Bound in 22 uniform cont. halfcalf w. gilt title and tome as well as double gilt line-ornamentations to backs. Double gilt line-borders to boards. Some corners bumped, some capitals worn, hinges of ab. 6 volumes weak, some starting to split. Bords of plate-volumes loose. Internally a very nice, clean and fresh set, w. only mild scattered brownspotting in a few volumes. All in all a good copy. Engraved frontispiece in volume one. In all ab. 16.200 pp., and 592 full-page engraved plates (being all 542 plates for the 18 volumes, and 50 plates for the supplemant-volumes. Plates 58 and 59 are not present, but they were presumably never made. As is explained on plate 57, there are two plates called plate 2, and one of these constitutes that which would have been plate 58; the same applies for plate 59, which is constituted in the second of the two plates that are called plate 7). The scarce third edition of the seminal Encyclopaedia Britannica, being the first edition that constitutes what we understand by the Encyclopaedia today, since the two previous editions contained merely three and ten volumes respectively and only contained articles, often of dubious scholarship, by one author. The present edition is that which caused the wide attention which befell the Encyclopaedia Britannica and the edition which bestowed upon it the popular and critical reputation for general excellence that it still holds to this day. The present edition contains numerous important articles and original contributions by important scholars, philosophers, writers, and scientists; probably most noteworthy among the scientific contributions are those by Thomas Thomson, who, in the present original articles, introduces the use of symbols into chemistry.The Encyclopaedia Britannica was first published in three volumes between 1768 and 1771 in Edinburgh. The first edition was compiled by the editor William Smellie alone, whereas the third edition was written by numerous authorities of great reputation.The second edition was begun in 1776 and was published in numbers, the first issued in 1777, and the last in 1784, forming in all 10 volumes, dated 1778 ill 1783, and containing 8.595 pages and 340 plates.The third edition is the first edition to include contributions from various learned authorities, and it is the first time that it appears as the Encyclopaedia Britannica that we know today. It was meant to be a conservative counterpart to the French Encyclopédie by Diderot and d'Alembert (first volume printed in 1751), and it was written in opposition to the anarchy and atheism of that."THE THIRD EDITION. - After about a year's preparation, the third edition was announced in 1787. It was completed in 1797 in 18 vols. 4to, containing 14,579 pages and 542 plates. Among the multifarious articles represented in the frontispiece, which was required by the traditional fashion of the period, is a balloon. The maps are, as in subsequent editions, distributed among the articlesrelating to the respective countries. It was edited by Colin Macfarquhar as far as the article "Mysteries," when he died, in 1793, in his 48th year, "worn out", says Constable, "by fatigue and anxiety of mind." His children's trustees and Andrew Bell requested George Gleig of Stirling (.), who had written about 12 articles, to edit the rest of the work. According to Kerr ("Smellie's Life", i. 364-365), 10,000 copies were printed, and the profit to the proprietors was £ 42,000 besides the payments for their respective work as tradesmen in the conduct of the publication -Bell as engraver of all the plates, and Macfarquhar as sole printer. According to Constable, the impression was begun at 5,000 copies, and concluded with a sale of 13,000. James Hunter When the edition was completed, the copyright and remaining books were sold in order to wind up the concern, and "the whole was purchased by Bell, who gave £13 a copy, so.

A rare opportunity to own the famous 11th Edition of the Britannica in a special limited edition bookcase that was designed and made for a select few of these sets. The bookcase is in remarkable condition, complete and intact and showing few signs of any use or age, with no significant flaws or damage, or even any serious scratching present (the right edge of one shelf is cracked, not noticeable, could likely be easily repaired). Included is the matching headpiece case for the 3-volume "New Edition", issued in 1922 as an update supplement, that is intended to sit neatly on top of the original bookcase (as shown in the photos). The main body of the bookcase is 13.5 inches across (wider at the top and bottom). It stands 5 feet tall with the headpiece. Books are in flexible leather (light brown suede) bindings. All exterior page edges are gilt. All 32 volumes are present and are complete, exteriors in varying conditions. For obvious reasons, the spines are in worse condition than are the books themselves, and for some reason the condition of the spines becomes worse as you move down the bookcase. The spines nearer the floor are in the poorest condition. A number of the boards are detached, but all boards are present and complete. Because they were protected, many of the boards are in Very Good or better condition, in or near the condition of the volume shown in the photos. All pages present, none missing, each book complete, internally clean and unmarked. We will arrange and pay for shipping.

Item Description: London: J. Innes, 1825, 1825. Octavo (217 x 130 mm), pp. [iv], 32, 41, [3] blank, 34, [2] blank, 33, [3] blank. Contemporary vellum spine and sprinkled boards, covers incorporating the engraved armorial bookplate of The Reverend James Edward Gambier M.A. of Langley, Kent, within a black rule border. In very good condition. Ownership inscription J. E. Gambier Langley Kent 1824 to title, annotation to front free endpaper "Of these essays, that on government is by much the most valuable. To me it appears far superior to anything I ever read on that subject", and another note to rear endpaper. First collected edition, printed hors commerce in an edition of only 50 copies (NCBEL III, col. 1549). Macvey Napier's invitation to contribute to his Supplement to the sixth edition of the Encyclopædia Britannica (1816–24) provided Mill with an excellent opportunity for propagating Utilitarianism. For all the personal fame Mill earned by the History of British India and Elements of Political Economy, "philosophic Radicalism" as a movement still lacked a house journal of the sort which the Westminster Review (begun in 1824) was to become. The essay on Government – regarded, wrote John Stuart Mill in his Autobiography, as a "masterpiece of political wisdom" by the philosophic Radicals – became a sort of authorised Benthamite primer on political theory; and when it was issued again, in 1828, attracted Macaulay's well-known attack in the Edinburgh Review, marking a notable juncture in the history of British liberalism. However, "Government"must not simply be viewed (or fêted) in splendid isolation. "To place it in the context of Mill's thought, one must relate it not only to his philosopy and educational theory, but as well and equally importantly, to the other eleven essays written for the Supplement This point would not be so important if these essays were duplications of material found elsewhere. But they are not. With the exception of three minor and early essays ['Banks for Savings', 'Beggar', and 'Benefit Societies'], the rest are products of his mature thought, and are also considered statements on the subjects concerned. Despite Mill's statement that they were 'all of them written against time,' they represent, in total, a text book on government, as Mill recognized. The selective reprinting of them illustrates this awareness. In both reprints, he made changes to the texts, and to "Government" in particular, extensive changes" (Fenn, James Mill's Political Thought, 1987, p. 115). The bibliography of Mill's contributions is complicated. "Government" was printed separately in 1821 (London, Traveller Office, 5 May 1821), "not for sale, but for gratis distribution" (Bain, p. 191), and separate reprints of other articles followed. According to Bain, the first collected edition (four essays) was printed in 1825, and the second (seven essays) in 1828.

Item Description: London: Baldwin and Cradock, 1835, 1835. Octavo (217 x 131 mm). Recent quarter calf, red morocco label, marbled sides and edges. General light foxing. A very good tall copy. First edition of the last published work of James Mill (1773-1836), Scottish political philosopher, staunch Benthamite, a key influence on David Ricardo, and father of John Stuart Mill. The Fragment is a stinging attack on Sir James Mackintosh's Dissertation on the Progress of Ethical Philosophy (1830), in which both Bentham's radicalism and Mill's Essays on Government (1820) were assailed by the whig polemicist. "With its withering sarcasm and unremitting ridicule, Mill's Fragment is a disagreeable and intemperate book. But it makes an effective case for utilitarian politics and moral philosophy" (ODNB). John Stuart Mill's biographer Michael St. John Packe writes amusingly that "'Old Mill' was in a gingery mood, having just effectively satisfied his long-felt desire to 'touch up Mackintosh before I die'. He had touched him up to such effect that, out of common decency to the dead, he had been forced to hold up publication of the book until the old philosopher had mouldered in his grave a year or two" (The Life of John Stuart Mill, 1954, p. 197).

Item Description: The University of Chicago Press, Chicago, Illinois, 1976. Hardcover. First Impression. Demy folio, [28.25cm/11inches] full gilt-embossed Navy blue faux-leather with red, white and blue spine labelsThe 15th and latest edition has a three-part structure: a 10-volume Micropædia of short articles (generally fewer than 750 words), a 19-volume Macropædia of long articles (two to 310 pages) and a single Propædia volume to give a hierarchical outline of knowledge. The Micropædia is meant for quick fact-checking and as a guide to the Macropædia; readers are advised to study the Propædia outline to understand a subject's context and to find more detailed articles. The size of the Britannica has remained roughly constant over 70 years, with about 40 million words on half a million topics. Although publication has been based in Chicago since 1901, the Britannica has largely maintained British spelling. Interviewed in February 2009, the managing director of Britannica UK said: "Wikipedia is a fun site to use and has a lot of interesting entries on there, but their approach wouldn't work for Encyclopædia Britannica. My job is to create more awareness of our very different approaches to publishing in the public mind. They're a chisel, we're a drill, and you need to have the correct tool for the job."Please feel free to inquire as to particulars and/or additional snapshots. In exceptionally good condition.
