Item Description: Edinburgh. Printed by J Balfour and Co., 1778. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. Encyclopedia Britannica. Second edition 1776 to 1783 extremely rare. This is a complete set of Britannica's Second edition. Extremely rare, and 237 years old, this edition never comes up for sale and you will probably never see one listed again, anywhere. Only 1, 500 copies of the second edition were printed. If you don't include this set, only 19 known sets exist in the world today according to WorldCat. A few more sets certainly exist in private hands, but they are almost never seen in the marketplace. To give you an idea how rare this edition is, Britannica ran a contest 2 years ago, trying to locate the oldest copy of Britannica in private hands in the UK, with the prize being a brand new 2010 set. The eventual winner had a 3rd edition set, dated 1797. This set is older, and would have won the contest if it had not been in the USA. Does that mean it's older than any set in private hands in the UK? Probably not, but there certainly can't be many complete sets left. None is listed on Abebooks or Amazon and probably won't be in a long time. Every once in a while, single volumes show up in the marketplace, but finding a complete set for sale like this is almost unheard of. The second edition was a 10-volume set. Volume 1 was begun in 1776 and finished in 1778, further volumes were printed by subscription over the next few years and Volume 10, the final volume, is dated 1783, so it was compiled during the Revolutionary War. This set is complete and all 10 volumes are in nice condition. No pages are missing, including end pages and title pages. All the plates are here, and have been carefully counted against the plate listings at the back of each volume. All the maps in this set are found in the 5th volume under Geography, and none is missing. There is a map of the world, a map for each continent, and several maps of individual countries. There are 18 maps in all. The number of plates, which includes all maps and unfolding charts, is 340. This set was repaired in 2011 and 2012 with new spines, in a manner which preserved the original spine labels and reused the original boards and end pages. It was quarter bound in brown calf which had been tanned in Edinburgh by J. Hewit & Sons, a company that has been in business there for over 200 years. Edinburgh is appropriately where Britannica was founded and where this set was printed as well. Normal amounts of yellowing to the pages are found throughout, but they are not brittle or fragile because linen rag paper remains very strong with age. Foxing in places, but no bookworm or other insect damage is to be found. Every volume has the name Bailey's written on the title page, probably an early owner. Volume and set numbers were written on the inside of the front of each cover by the bookbinder back in 1784. This is set number 1553. Volume 1 had some water damage in sections, which the paper conservator cleaned recently in a conservative manner (he did not wash the whole volume in cleaner, but merely dabbed the cleaner, using cotton balls, on the spots that needed it the most). No drastic repairs have been done, such as re-sewing, rebinding, etc. as I felt these measures do too much to make a new boobook out of an antique treasure. The repair which was done makes the books very strong and usable, without having to handle them with white gloves for fear of having them fall apart in your hands as you read them, yet conserves as much of the original bindings as possible. New linen spine tapes and super were added to the spines so the boards are very strongly attached and will last another century or two. All the original boards were used in the repair. The 19 known copies of this set, according to WorldCat: NY Historical Soc. L., British National L. (BNB), National L. of France (BnF), Danish National L., Huntington L. (Calif.), National L. of Scotland, Boston Athenaeum, Brooklyn Public L., and in the libraries of the following Universities: Cambridge, Oxford, Edinburgh, Keio, Yale, KwaZulu, Bookseller Inventory # ABE-15294622652

Item Description: Edinburgh, Printed for A Bell and C. Macfarquhar, 1797 + John Brown, 1801. 4to. 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.
