40-year old (1977) Encyclopedia Americana. Complete 30-volume set. The Encyclopedia American is one of the three major contemporary English-language general encyclopedias, together with Encyclopædia Britannica and Collier's Encyclopedia : the three were sometimes collectively called "the ABCs". In 1994, Kenneth Kister, a professor of library science and authority in the field of reference and information sources published a qualitative and quantitative comparison of the ABCs. For the quantitative analysis, ten articles were selected at random, and letter grades of A–D or F were awarded. In the accuracy category, Americana received eight "A"s. the Britannica received one "D" and seven "A"s, , and Collier's received one "D" and seven "A"s. Self-collect weekday evening or weekend at Depot Road. I can also meet on weekend (limited time slots) at: Plaza Singapura (Dhoby Ghaut), Clementi Mall, Jurong West St 52 (opposite Rulang Primary School, 10-minute walk from Lakeside MRT), and possibly places along the way between these three places and Depot Road. For meeting at any place other than Depot Rod, buyer has to transfer at least $40 to my bank account before the meet up -- it takes quite an effort to bring encyclopedia around, so this condition is to protect myself against 'No Show. Please do not Chat To Buy if you are not agreeable to these conditions.
