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 improvement

Regards

Chris Bennett

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 This means that I will have to keep my older copies for this information, although some of it will be out of date now.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 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.

The book arrived in good condition and in good time. It is not easy to get a simple GENERAL reference book for crosswords, general knowledge etc and this fits the bill. I am pleased with it although the format is a bit dated now.

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!

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.
