What is the last word in the Encyclopedia Britannica?
For years, this Polish city (population 32,000) has had the distinction of being the final entry in the print edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica, the last word in the 44-million-word opus. Now, in this post-print, post-alphabetical world, Zywiec will be just another Central European town with a nice castle.
Which is better Encyclopedia Britannica or World Book?
The Britannica has always been the more scholarly. In the 1920s, it had entries written by Sigmund Freud (psychoanalysis), Albert Einstein (space-time) and Harry Houdini (conjuring). The World Book is the more accessible.
