New York: The Encyclopaedia Britannica Company. 1910. Complete set, 29 volumes. The last edition of the Britannica to be written entirely by experts - subsequent editions were significantly simplified. The Encyclopa¦dia Britannica (English: British Encyclopa¦dia) is a general English-language encyclopaedia published by Encyclopa¦dia Britannica, Inc., a privately held company. Articles are aimed at educated adults, and written by about 100 full-time editors and more than 4,000 expert contributors. It is regarded as the most scholarly of encyclopaedias. The Britannica is the oldest English-language encyclopa¦dia still in print. It was first published between 1768 and 1771 in Edinburgh, Scotland, and grew in popularity and size, its third edition (1797) and supplement (1801) reaching 20 volumes together. Its rising stature helped recruit eminent contributors, and the 9th edition (1875-1889) and the 11th edition (1911) are landmark encyclopaedias for scholarship and literary style. Beginning with the 11th edition, the Britannica shortened and simplified articles to broaden its North American market. In 1933, the Britannica became the first encyclopaedia to adopt continuous revision, in which the encyclopaedia is continually reprinted and every article updated on a schedule.Keywords: ENCYCLOPEDIA REFERENCE HISTORY Condition Notes: Eleventh edition, often referred to as the scholar's edition. Edges rubbed, spine of one volume cracked along rear joint, loss from spine of another volume, a few volumes lightly stained.
