5.0 out of 5 stars Latest version of Pears Cyclopaedia
This will be the fifth edition of Pears I've purchased over the years & I'm as delighted with this one as I was with the first.
Just one change that I feel is a loss & that is the map section related to the geographic locations - no longer worldwide, rather just UK ... please consider adding it back in future editions. Other than that .... all positive...

This book was delivered with a nasty sticker on the back. Removing the sticker left a residue of sticky gunk, and removing the gunk caused damage. So, I now have spoiled and damaged book.

Thanks a bunch, guys!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great pity - no maps or gazatteer, 25 Jun. 2014

This review is from: Pears' Cyclopaedia 2013-2014 (Hardcover)
Consistently good source of information in one small book. But the usual gripes, I'm afraid - only two rather pathetic maps as end sheets and no universal gazatteer. This means that I will have to keep my older copies for this information, although some of it will be out of date now. Also some new gripes - there was no protective cover around this edition, the print is smaller and paper quality meaner. Come on Pears - don't get any more complacent or I might have to migrate to Wikipedia more often.

I always have a copy of Pears Cyclopaedia in my home for reference purposes but I do not buy a new one every year, usually I get one every 4 or 5 years.

The printing is very small but once you get into the way it is written there is some useful information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pears Cyclopaedia 2013/4, 30 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pears' Cyclopaedia 2013-2014 (Hardcover)
I first purchased a copy of Pears Cyclopaedia in about 1942 during the War whilst a schoolboy. It cost 5 shillings (25p) I
found it very useful and I have bought several since then. It is an astonishingly compact volume absolutely packed with
useful and interesting information and well worth the current price. Delivery was prompt and - all in all - a good buy.
