1956 - 10 Book, 20Vol. Set Book of Knowledge
Capital knowledge of sea-fish; not book knowledge, but practical.
The Book of Knowledge Set of Encyclopedias are a treasure for the HomeSchooler and Public schooled child alike. These are not like regular encyclopedias and are not to be confused with the "New Book of Knowledge". As far as we have found, they were first published by Grolier Publishing in 1890 and ended in 1963. We have seen them in the colors--burgundy, blue, and red & white, green, greenish blue and black, etc. They are a 20 volume set of books that come in either a 20 volume set or a 10 volume set with 2 volumes per book. Books with the same copyrights are identical with the 10 volume series containing only more pages in each book. What makes them so unique is they are fully illustrated with black & white and color photos, they contain subjects necessary and of interest specifically for the education process in a way that is not and has not been accomplished before or since. With the incoming information, digital age, real books are becoming extinct. Books are burned at various locations around the country. Libraries are buying and shelving less books and adding more computers. If we had no electricity, no internet, then these would be the books you would want in your possession. The 10 book sets are of great value to missionaries with families. If you have a set and would like to donate them, please check with your local church for a missionary family.
In every walk in life, book knowledge is only a means to an end.
With these booklets your children will receive the full benefits of the Book of Knowledge, saving parents time and planning. Not enough can be written to describe the Courses of Study and School-Subject guide. So simple, yet so advanced to most this day and time. Easy to use. The outlines help teach self study and independence, as well as helping relieve parents of any concern and to see what must be covered. Too bad this material is out of print and still under copyright.
