Encyclopedia Britannica 11th Edition


The Encyclopedia Britannica Eleventh Edition (1910–1911) is a 29-volume reference work that marked the beginning of the Encyclopedia Britannica's transition from a British to an American publication. Some of its articles were written by the best-known scholars of the day. The articles are still of value and interest to modern scholars as cultural artifacts of the 19th and early 20th centuries.


(We also have the 9th Edition of Britannica on DVD.  Check out our other items)

Britannica is the oldest English language encyclopedia that is still in print.  Originally published starting in 1768 in Edinburgh, it quickly grew in popularity and size.  The 3rd edition in 1801 reached 20 volumes.  The rising stature of Britannica helped recruit eminent scholars as contributors.  The 9th edition is regarded as a landmark encyclopedia for scholarship and literary style (also available from our store).

The 1911 eleventh edition was assembled under the leadership of American publisher Horace Everett Hooper, and edited by Hugh Chisholm. Originally, Hooper purchased the rights to the 25-volume ninth edition and persuaded the British newspaper The Times to issue its reprint, with eleven additional volumes (35 volumes total) as the tenth edition, which appeared in 1902. Hooper's association with The Times ceased in 1909, and he negotiated with the Cambridge University Press to publish the 29-volume eleventh edition.

This encyclopedia was first published about 100 years ago.  Print volumes are increasingly difficult to find.  And if you were to find one, expect to pay! 


And then, do you really want to flip through the pages of a collector's encyclopedia and lower its value?  With this DVD rom disk, you can pop it in your laptop on a plane and read along as much as you like.  With 30,000 pages, I doubt you'll ever get to it all!  But, for those individuals looking to do research on the ideas and beliefs of the 19th and early 20th century, there is no better source than the 11th edition of the encyclopedia Britannica!




I know this goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway. To play DVD's, you need a DVD-ROM drive in your computer.  These DVD's will not play in your CD-ROM drive.  We are not responsible for your hardware problems if you purchase this disk without realizing you don't have a DVD-ROM drive!

All books are in PDF format on a custom DVD delivered to your door.  You can print out as many copies as you need on your home printer.  You will need a free copy of Adobe Reader that you can download for free online.
