1923 Book of Knowledge


I still haven't put the volumes in numerical order to see if the set is complete. I found a few volumes of this set before over the years and removed numerous color plates and b&w photos for my clipping files. I will save this set intact for reference, scanning and blog posting. . . more to come!

so scientific isn't it...and yet so artsy and FUN
seems you have a mystery to solve, hope your set is complete!

It looks like v.18 is the only one missing out of 20. Who knows, maybe it will turn up in a week or two!

Hi Sarah, I love the old encyclopedias. Always nice to find even if they do not make complete sets!
