Description

THE CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA An International Work of Reference on the Constitution, Doctrine, Discipline, and History of the Catholic Church. NY: Encyclopedia Press 1913 reprint of 1907-1914 [first] edition. First reprint edition, (sometimes called the 'second edition'). 16 large heavy octavo's, green publ's cloth, text double column printed on good paper which is clean and bright, woodcuts throughout, last volume is index, with hundreds of full page plates (some in color) and many hundreds of woodcuts and engravings in the text. Two volumes are from another set and in slightly different bindings (a bit darker cloth), most covers have the traces of very old bug trails. While this may be unpleasant to some it has never bothered me a bit and I've used this for over 20 years. It is a monument to the study of the Catholic Church, as it was seen in the days of Pious X. 11,600 entries. Hundreds of contributors. Available in a CDROM now for mere $40.00, (and erroneously referred to as the "second edition" by the publisher--there is only one edition, with two separate printings.). A second edition, entries modernized, was published in 1967 and 2002 (revised), is also in 15 volumes with 12,000 entries and is in print at $1600.00. You will see some volumes "issued under the auspices of ....", but these are just reprints by the publisher in with cheaper materials. I have done a page-by-page comparison of the 1909 1st Ed and this edition and they are identical except for a few plate changes. Scarce. Complete in 16 volumes (eventually there were an additional five supplementary volumes published).
