Overview

Since 1768, the Encyclopedia Britannica has set the standard for general reference works. Four thousand contributors—including 110 Nobel Prize winners and five US presidents—have written on half a million topics. The 32 volumes cover geography, biography, biology, medicine, literature, religion, philosophy, art, law, and more. For over 240 years, Encyclopedia Britannica has achieved its goals of serving as an excellent reference book and providing educational materials—because of this, it has remained one of the most well-respected and scholarly English encyclopedias.

The 11th edition was recognized particularly for its scholarship and quality of writing, and it is still praised for its excellence and landmark literary style. It included more articles than any previous edition, but kept them simple and concise. The three New Volumes, added in 1922, provided perspectives on events before, during, and after World War I. As a general reference text or a work of history, the Encyclopedia Britannica remains highly valuable for people of all ages, in all fields.

With the Encyclopedia Britannica, your Logos library becomes a more comprehensive resource for all of your academic, pastoral, or personal research needs. The massive content of the encyclopedia seamlessly integrates into your library so that words in your Bibles, dictionaries, and other books will automatically link to the hundreds of thousands of articles in the Encyclopedia Britannica. Articles link to Logos’ Bible Word Study, Bible Facts, Guides, Information Panel, and other features and research tools. Look up any word by simply right-clicking it and selecting the encyclopedia—then compare its article with similar articles from your other reference works.

Praise for the Print Edition

Representing a peak of colonial optimism before the slaughter of war, the 1910/11 edition has acquired an almost mythic reputation among collectors . . . the 11th edition continues to inspire a religious reverence from its loyal adherents. The siren call of its 28 leather-bound volumes works a subtle magic on antiquarians, historians, booksellers, and scholars around the world. The 11th is exceptionally well-written, the first encyclopedia where readability was courted in addition to scholarship. But its durability goes deeper than that. [It] represents the high tide of optimism and belief in human progress that had dominated the Anglo-Saxon vision since the Enlightenment.

    I may be dead by the time this is available for Logos 7, but I bid anyhow. This would be a great addition to my library. It's a Classic edition of EB.

    This edition is considered by reference librarians to be at about the apex of the art on writing an encyclopedia. It has been and still is the fullest Encyclopaedia Britannica, later editions "pushing out," simplifying, and abridging articles to maintain size decades before the unfortunate decision to divide the work into the micropedia/macropedia editions that began in the 1970s. The majority of the material is still applicable as is, and still is a foundational reference work that would be good to have at the ready in Logos format.

    Place your bid. Lets get this in to production. Old encyclopaedia are good for reference as they give us a snapshot of history of how the world was viewed at the time.

    Some people are comparing this edition to the Noet one. I heard that the Noet Edition is just a fraction of the size of the actual Encyclopaedia Britannica.

    I'd love to see Faith Life - Noet request Britannica's (Great Books) collections, and Britannica's (The Annals Of American History) as well. I went ahead and pre-ordered the Noet version over that of the other version, which does appear to be an older copy. I do however like the idea of seeing older writings because this gives us a better flavor in how they thought, and I do believe that this older copy version does come from a more Biblical stance, rather than a lot of secular liberalists ideology being introduced in to any given topic.

    I think it’s a little sad how so many consider history, or knowledge in general, to be 'out of date'. Though much has occurred since the 11th edition, it must be understood why this edition is celebrated, particularly in light of the liberalism that has doctored much of modern scholarship (no pun intended). Though I am sure this product is readily available through the public domain in soft copy, (I have all but a few volumes of the hard copy originals), it is nevertheless a very worthwhile product for any student utilising Logos, and is certainly one item that is lacking in their line of resources. Would be great if they could add all the volumes necessary from 1922 to today, but I certainly don’t want any re- writing of the original works by today’s scholars. My bid is in.

    I would be more comfortable paying $10 or $20 for this outdated, but awesome Encyclopedia.

    Contrary to what several others have posted, this is indeed a valuable and indeed even needed resource. It is true that is available freely online -- but then again, so are most of the works on community pricing. You are not paying to access the content per se, but to access the content within your logos library, which is significantly more usable for most purposes than the various free formats. Though this particular edition of the Britannica is over 100 years old it is still valuable today since it is widely considered to have had the best selection of contributors of any edition of the famed encyclopedia, i.e. Freud wrote the articles on psychology, etc. It is not of course, up-to-date as a fact checker but it is not by any means worthless as a historical tool.
