1797 Encyclopedia Britannica
Complete 3rd Edition on DVD

Price: $14.97     SKU: E23     Qty:

The Encyclopedia Britannica Third Edition (1797) is an 18 volume reference work plus two volumes of plates. It was developed during the encyclopedia's earliest period as a two-man operation initiated by Colin Macfarquhar and Andrew Bell, in Edinburgh, Scotland. Most of the editing was done by Macfarquhar, and all the copperplates were created by Bell. The volumes were written over a long period, from volume 1 in 1788 to volume 18 in 1797.

These ancient volumes are a treasure trove of interesting and unusual facts and make for fascinating reading to get a sense of the times and their knowledge of the world vs what we now know of the world. This makes them perfect for researchers, historians and anyone interested in this time period and the happenings of the world at that time.
