Read Britannica Books on

I currently own the 2007 Encyclopaedia Britannica 15th edition as well as a reprint of the 1771 first edition. However, libraries won't let you check out an encyclopedia and few have old versions anyway. So here I'll try to link to all scanned versions of the Encyclopaedia Britannica on that I'm able to find.

If I missed any, someone please let me know!

Wikipedia has a summary of all the editions ever produced.

1797 (3rd edition) (18 volumes)

1798 (3rd edition) (18 volumes)

1801 (supplement to 3rd) (2 volumes)

1803 (supplement to the 3rd) (2 volumes?)

  • Vol I (marked as published 1797, but the book says 1803)
  • Vol II (marked as published 1797, but the book says 1803)

1810 (4th edition) (20 volumes)

1823 (6th edition) (20 volumes)

1824 (supplement)

1888 (9th edition) (25 volumes)

1890 (9th edition) (25 volumes)

1907 (The New Werner edition?)

1910 (11th edition) (29 volumes)

1911 (11th edition) (29 volumes)

That's all I could find. There may be more. If you find any, let me know!
