Item Description: A. Bell & C. MacFarquhar, Edinburgh, 1797. Full-Leather. Book Condition: Good. Third Edition. 1797, 1801. 20 vols: xvi, 799; 799; 806; 789; 807; 800; 799; 799; 799; 786; 814; 799; 799, 797; 799; 799; 827; 945; 812; 804 p. 591 engraved plates - lacks vol. 9 pl. 253. Vol. 8's historical chart is in colour. A few other small line drawings. Full leather with burgundy and black spine labels. Some wear and scuffing with a bit of chipping to spine labels. Most corners bumped. Tear at top of spine in vol. 12. Damage to base of spine vol. 15 and top of vol. 4. Moderate foxing. Staining vol. 13 pages 354-375, 390-400. Other stains in vol. 2 page 177, vol. 6 page 90, vol. 16 pl. 438. Pencil and ink inscriptions on some endpapers indicate former owner William Wilkins of Galt, Ontario, in 1860s and 70s. A few scattered pencil notes inside. A few ink notes as well. Chipped bottom corners vol. 8, page 141, vol. 18, page 433. Large tear vol. 1 page 385. Tears in table opposite page 598 in vol. 4 and table facing page 90 in vol. 8. Plates 102 in col. 3 and 340 in vol. 12 are repaired. An early edition of the most scholarly of encyclopedias. In this first era the Britannica was managed and published by founders Colin MacFarquhar and Andrew Bell. It was primarily a Scottish enterprise, one of the most enduring legacies of the Scottish Enlightenment. Most fascinating today are its detailed diagrams; highlights include great skeletons in vol. 1 plates 7-20, a dodo in vol. 6 plate 164 and detailed midwifery diagrams at the rear of vol. 11. Not all the information would still be considered accurate today. Note the entry under "Children" in vol. 4 page 646: "Mr. Derham computes, that marriages, one with another, produce four children, not only in England, but in other parts also." Yet the scholarship, although not perfect, was among the best in the world for its time. Bookseller Inventory # 103857

Item Description: Cambridge University / The Encyclopedia Britannica Company, 1910. Hard Cover - Leather. Book Condition: Fair to Very Good. Eleventh Edition. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. ** ELEVENTH EDITION - 1910 ** WITH RARE ORIGINAL ARTS AND CRAFTS BOOKCASE ** LEATHER BOUND ** COMPLETE SET 29 VOLUMES ** PLUS 3 VOLUME "NEW EDITION" IN ITS OWN CASE ** NOTE: Photos accessed with this listing are of the actual books and bookcase you will be sent; please examine them closely as they provide the best indication of condition. 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. Buy with confidence, professional booksellers for 35 years, selling online since 1995. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # AB4678

Item Description: A.Bell & C. McFarquhar, Edinburgh, 1797. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. 3rd Edition. 2 volumes with the 542 copparplates. superb b/w plates, diagrams and copperplates. from the third edition. ORIG much-worn, brown, suede-like leather over boards, beginning to split at exterior hinges. Printed on very good paper, the plates are remarkably free of spotting or foxing, some with minor old mendings. The 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.
