"I've tried most everything,
but it's still there"
A. true story from a recent purchaser of the ,
Britannica. The word quoted are ulhat one
1 man maid recently tohile visiting a friend.
The host turned to his Encyclopaedia Britannica, looked under the heading
"Corn," handed it to the visitor to read with the recommendation that he try
the relief suggested in the article.
"I never knew the Britannica told about such an insignificant and everyday
affair as a corn," said the visitor.
But it does. It tells about everything big and little, far and near, common
and uncommon, concerning men and women, sea and land, air and sky, the queer
and quaint, the new and novel, from the dawn of time right down to now.
And right there is a measure of the Britannica's value to you. Nothing is
insignificant when you want to know about it. That's why the Britannica tells
everything in the realm of knowledge, no matter whether you want to relieve a
corn,"stop dandruff, build a sidewalk, raise a childknow who built the Pyramids,
read the scientific theory of how the world was built, know what to eat to reduce
or gain weight, how the Bible was written or how to do a problem in arithmetic
in short, it tells you
The WHY, the WHEN, the WHAT, the WHERE,
the WHO and the HOW about everything
But the Britannica is not too big or won
derful for you to own. It will be sent to
you for only $1 down if you act AT ONClu
Our supply of sets of the Britannica is
limited. You must buy soon because no more
can be printed on the thin, tough, linenlike
India paper made from flax. The war has
destroyed the flax industry in Germany and
Belgium for years to come an embargo by
Great Britain prevents importations from
there. No other country grows the superior
grade of flax required for India paper.
You want the Britannica printed on this
superb paper- 152,500 purchasers out of
160,000 have chosen it in this form. India
paper multiplies the Britannica's value. It
reduced the thickness of the Britannica's 29
volumes from over 5 feet to 29 inches and
reduced their weight from 85 pounds to
35 pounds nearly two-thirds reduction.
Thus, by making the Britannica .more con
venient to handle and easy to read, its value
and usefulness are increased many fold. .. , (
In view of the shortage of sets and the
fact that the Britannica cannot be printed
again on India paper, the present prices
make this marvelous work a great bargain.
But you can't delay and expect to buy the
Britannica printed on India paper you must
act immediately. The supply can last but a
very short time 70,000 sets were sold in six
months the last few thousand copies are
going now. While they last you can buy for
down and $3 a month for a limited period
(for cheapest binding)
