More on Zell's Encyclopedia

Zell's Popular Encyclopedia: A Universal Dictionary of English Language, Science, Literature, and Art - In Two Volumes - New and Revised Edition can be seen on the Internet Archive. It is printed in three columns (my single volume edition is printed in two) and the illustrations are different. Link to Volume II. here.

I see there is a five volume edition (with a price of $1,200.00) and also a 126 page index written by Theodore W. McClintock in 1879 titled: Analysis of Zell's Popular Encyclopedia; Consisting of an Outline of Universal History; the Arrangement in Chronological Order of Historical, Biographical Titles in Zell's; With Synopsis of the History of Each Nation and Tables of Persons.
