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.
