Quick Overview

  • The encyclopædia was originally published in fortnightly parts between March 1908 and February 1910. Some readers could have bound their collections, but the first eight-volume sets were published in 1910. Each section contained a variety of articles, developing topics as it progressed.

  • The work could be used as a conventional reference library, as the last volume had an alphabetical index, or each section could be read from start to finish. It was originally organised into sections but there were changes in subsequent editions. Some titles covered scientific subjects such as geologybiology and astronomy but such scientific terms were generally avoided.

  • The illustrations were mostly anonymous but some illustrators included Susan Beatrice PearseC. E. BrockThomas MaybankGeorge F. Morrell, Heath, Charles, H. R. MillarAlexander Francis LydonArthur A. Dixon and Arthur Rackham.
  • The books used photographs by Frank Hinkins, engravings, maps and graphics.[1]The encyclopædia broke ground in the approach to education, aiming to make learning interesting and enjoyable. Its articles were clearly written and intended to develop character and sense of duty.The article expressed pride for Great Britain and its empireChristianity was held to be the only true religion
  • Europeans were clearly the most advanced and there were hints of the eugenic ideas of Caleb Saleeby. This was presented in a moderate and liberal way in many areas: other "races", although inferior according to the text, were to be treated with respect, and imperialism was justified only if it improved the lot of its subjects.
  • At a time when the relation between science and religion was controversial, the encyclopædia supported evolution, but it did not admit any contradiction between religious teachings and Darwin's views
