Pre-order your uniquely numbered, 250th Anniversary Edition from Britannica!

Designed to complete your Britannica yearbook collection and to serve as an engaging stand-alone volume, this individually numbered, special collector’s publication is a rare compendium of knowledge, insights, and history.

It will be the last edition in the 80-year tradition of Britannica's distinguished yearbooks and will commemorate Encylopædia Britannica's 250th year of publishing (1768-2018).

The three sections of this book include:

  • Evolving Knowledge: Enjoy some of our favorite entries from Britannica’s earliest editions, going back to 1768, when Britannica wondered whether “Callifornia” was an island.
  • Classic Voices: Enjoy the words of the great contributors who have written for Britannica over the centuries, including Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Arnold Palmer.
  • Issues of Today, Visions of Tomorrow: Recent U.S. Secretaries of State Madeleine Albright and James Baker weigh in on the international scene; Monica Lewinsky discusses cyberbullying; Harvard’s Henry Louis Gates, Jr., tackles race relations, among many other contributors.


Books will be delivered in the spring of 2018.
