How are the mighty

The Encyclopaedia Britannica will be published no more, at least on dead trees.

A couple of years ago I bought a copy of the first edition, back in the Enlightenment; historical dates were given in Years of the World, starting in 4004 BC, and it had full instructions for learning mathematics, midwifery and printing, among other things. And I'd still like a set of the 1875, with Macaulay doing the history.
