For nearly 250 years, the Encyclopedia Britannica will no longer be in print after the final 2010-2012 volumes. This may come as a bit of a heartbreak to avid collectors of the educational books, but the guys behind Britannica say this isn’t sad to them at all.
In fact, it’s been a long time coming for the Encyclopedia Britannica to meet its end, and the company has even acknowledged that the famous volumed sets have only accounted for about one percent of their sales for a long time.
“Everyone will want to call this the end of an era, and I understand that. But there’s no sad moment for us. I think outsiders are more nostalgic about the books than I am,” said Jorge Cauz of Britannica.
So are you disappointed that the final volumes of everyone’s favorite encyclopedia are coming soon? Will you be buying the very last volumed set for your family so as to remember the legacy that’s lasted a couple hundred years?
