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.

"From every standpoint the highest achievement in Colonial bookmaking. The whole work, illustrations, type, and paper (and content) shows an achievement of professional craftsmen working together for an enlightened publisher. The first American book on anything like such a scale, Dobson's work marks the end of printing in America as a household craft and the beginning of its (modern) development." Evans 22486.The plates encompass the full range of subject matter dealt with in the encyclopedia's text-- Machinery, mathematics, wildlife, botany, agriculture, pottery, navigation, military strategy, maps, and nine plates of engraved musical score. One of the maps (CCCCX) has hand-colored outline. Supplement Vol I concludes with a 61-page entry on Electricity. Vol XV: Includes the four page addendum related to John Fox.

Item Description: NP 1910-1922, New York, 1910. Hardcover. Book Condition: vg. 32 volumes bound in 15 & 3 Supplement volumes. Sm. 4to. Three-quarter brown cloth over maroon cloth boards with gold lettering on spine. Top edge gilt. Supplement volumes are in gold decorated leather and are encased in plastic. The First Edition of 'The Encyclopedia Britannica' was published in 3 volumes in Edinburgh between 1768 and 1771, however the famous Eleventh Edition is considered one of the most important publications of the 20th century. "Later editions reflect the tendency to court public favor by accepting the claims and beliefs of various religious sects. This edition did not consult with religious groups in preparing its articles. The arrangement of articles tended to make the Eleventh Edition a practical reference work for layman rather than an erudite work largely for scholars and educators. The index was a 'model of well-ordered compactness,' and was designed primarily to aid the general reader. It is perhaps the most useful of all books of reference, and represents the combination of learning, research, co-operation and organization in a higher degree than any other of the monumental works of literature and science." Illustrated with fold-out maps some of which are in color, b/w photographs, drawings, tables and plans. Rubbing, scuffing and staining to boards and spines. Corners bumped and worn. Rubbing to head and tail of spines. Some writing to front board of Vol.1-2. Creasing to some pages. Free front endpaper and half-title on Vol.1-2 torn on upper right edges. Small area on back board of Vol. 11-12 punctured. Heavy staining to front board of Vol. 5-6 and back board of Vol. 27-28. Vols. 30-32: "The Encyclopedia Brittanica; the New volumes constituting, in combination with the twenty-nine volumes of the eleventh edition, the twelfth edition of that work, and also supplying a new, distinctive, and independent library of reference dealing with events and developments of the period 1910 to 1921 inclusive. Title-page of same volume has 1/3 of page near bottom right corner missing. Bindings in good-, interior overall in very good condition. Spines on supplement volumes sunned. Head and tail of spines rubbed and slightly chipped. Supplement volumes in very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 14900
