A five-volume encyclopedia, copyright 1912, which was somehow acquired by my grandfather (born 1918), used for much of his life, and finally given to me. Interesting tidbits will gradually be assimilated into Everything. Its title page reads:
A concise and accurate compilation of the world's knowledge, prepared from the latest and best authorities in every department of learning; including a
Chronological History of the World
graphically represented by colored charts, showing the most
important epochs and events of history, from the earliest times
to the present day.
And A Treasury of Facts
containing much valuable information often in demand, but not
usually found in a single collection. Also
A Statistical Record of the World
which includes latest figures from the recent United States Census.
