Encyclopedia Britannica 9th Edition Complete Set 25 (+ 3) 1878-91 Leather Bound
New York: Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc, 1878. Encyclopedia Britannica 9th Edition ~ complete set of 25 volumes, and three supplemental volumes. Published between 1878 and 1891. Since they were not all published at the same time, or even the the same cities, there is some variation in color. The Volume V, which I took photos of, is in a little better condition than some of the other. Some have more wear to the edges, or some scratches to the leather boards. No loose parts or pages. I didn't check every page in the set, but there does not appear to be anything missing. The three supplemental volumes do not cover the whole alphabet ~ maybe half. I do not know if more supplements were published, or if they just skipped over to the next edition. None of the others which I have seen for sale have even had three supplements, so, if there are later supplemental volumes, they are probably quite rare. These will obviously need to be shipped in several boxes. I will give tracking numbers for each box shipped.
