About this book

With an introduction by Kafker,(FA). |The Encyclopaedia Britannica was the first English-language compendium to be called an encyclopaedia. It was compiled on a completely new plan, arranged alphabetically, combining easy reference to individual terms and minor topics, thus pioneering a new way to organise and disseminate learning. This milestone in the history of encyclopaedia-making was first issued in one hundred parts in less than three years.
