Title: Encyclopaedia Britannica (11th Edition)

Provider: PageWise

Subject Heading/s: Encyclopedias and dictionaries

LC Class: AE

Reference Category: Encyclopedias

Description: " . . . this 11th edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica was written in journalistic style. Articles are in clear, concise English with a minimum of clutter, and not only was the 11th Edition easy to read, it was arranged in such a way as to invite idle browsing.

The 1911 encyclopedia was unfettered by pressure groups, had journalistic integrity and was open to a wide variety of philosophies. The 11th Edition is frank and honest in its articles on religious history, especially medieval church history. Women's suffrage was given a soapbox, as were many other controversial subjects of the day."

Links for articles are to the page the article is on, rather than to the article itself.
