Answers to Doubters
WE recently announced the sale of the new Encyclopaedia Britannica, I Ith edition (guaranteed, authorized and com?
plete), in a compact and convenient "HANDY VOLUME" form, at one-third the price of the Cambridge University
issue the only other issue of this great library the entire Encyclopaedia Britannica shipped under our sweeping
guarantee for a first payment of only $1.00 down.
We have received hundreds of letters I rom people who cannot believe what we said about this bargain in our announce?
ment. We want to answer everyone who has any doubts.
1 1?re are some of the questions we have received and our answers to them.
to i "Is it the genuine Britannica that you are soiling
at a reduction of 64f ; and on a first payment <>f only
i b I "Do you really mean that you arc selling an issue
of the Britannica for ?>l', lena than the Cambridge
issue and thai it is u ?well-made book? I don't nee how
\'<>u can do it !"
' <? I "Do I correctly understand your advertisement of
the 'Handy Volume' issue of the Ilth Edition Britan?
nica to mean that this issue contains absolutely all of
the contents of the Cambridge University issue, word
for word the same? That seems too good to be true."
d i "I cannot believe that the type is legible. If you
have reduced the price and the size, isn't the type in the
'Handy Volume' Britannica so fine that one cannot
read it ?"
($) "I want the Britannica and always have wanted
it, but 1 never could afford it. Now the price you are

binding and gel p don'1 suit .;" scholarship and
reputation o1 thi splendid encyclopaedia I've always
longed for "
if) "You guarantee that tho contents are the same
in the 'Hand) Volun ? as in the Cambridge issue
that costs three times as much. Does this mean texl
only -have you left out the hundreds of beautifully
colored maps and color pial
fa ) We guarantee that the "Handy Volume" issue is the d' nuine and most recrnt edition of the
Encyclopaedia Britannica. The Britannica is copyrighted in the United States and it Is Impossible for
any one to ? il or offer for sale anything called the Encyclopaedia Britannica unless it is the genuine
work. The "Handy Volume" issue Is manufactured by the same printers and binders as the more ex
pensive hook, for the Encyclopaedia Britannica Corporation, the American publishers of the "Handy
Volume" Issue and the Cambridge University issue.
ii>> How we can do it is a long story. Much too long and full of minute detail to tell in thisj>lace. It
was ih?' result of a long .-??ries of experiments?her?' one saving, there another, both small, then another
a little bigger, then a dozen others each bo small that by itself it hardly counted, but the dozen together
making an appreciable difference. We didn't see ourselves h<>v it could be done. But u?> kn ??'" it has
been done. We can prove that. If you like the product you need not bother over the proa r.
<c) Everything that is in the new Encyclopaedia Britannica issued by Cambridge University of Eng?
land is in the "Handy Volume'' issue; every page, every article, every line of text, every picture in black
and white outline or half-tone ; every illustration in just the same colors; every map?absolutely the
same contents. ]f we did not send out the complete Encyclopaedia Britannica, it would be as fraudulent
as if we delivered only the New Testament after advertising the Biblel
id) Professor Roscoe Pound of the Harvard Law School, a well-known authority on jurisprudence and
an eminent botanist, writes us as follows, after seeing and examining the "Handy Volume" issue:
Gentlemt ?: Cambridge, Mass., Nov. 17,1915.

Harvard who paid three times at much for his set of the Britannica as you will net d to pay.

Yours very truly,

(f) The maps and color plates are all there and ali in the same colors. Not one of them is left out.
Most oi them are from new color blocks so that the colors are brighter, clearer, better and more accurate
than the last printing- of the color plates in the big books. Color-printing and all other details of
manufacture are supt rvi ed by the publishers and are done for them, not for us, under the same strict
rules of "the best, no matter what the cost." that governed the maim facture of the Cambridge issue.
ig) "Is there anj time limit on this offer? In ?ither
words, could 1 gel this si; in s year or two, at the cam?'
price and ?mi the same terms as now?"
(h) "What will you do if T order an<l don't like the
book.? and send them bacl, and they come to you in bad
condition? Won't I have to pay for them?"
(g) We advise you to order now orders can be filled promptly fr i ?w on hand. But there
will be a long waiting list when the first supply of sets is exhausted; tl pply will come in
slowly, because the man i facture of these fine books cannot be rushed. The offer is limited. We can't
iay when it will be withdrawn. But you can be sure that you cannot "gi Bet In a year or two at
the same price and on the same terms as now."
i li > We take all the risk. We expect you to be satisfied. We know the qua!:';, of the work that is in
the "Handy x olumes" and we know how useful and valuable the En - a Britannica I -. We want
?.,,?? to test the set. If you arenot satisfied, we want the b?ooks back and v.e '.-.-ill return your money.
If the books come back showing no signs oi use. we should not fi had given them a fair
test. Under no circu? i will you be asked to pay for a age.
(Note: We pay all shipping charges on any set returned because it is nol
(i) The "Handj Volumes" are well made and well bound. What Is simple fact and not
"brag." They are made from the game grade of Fa v. materials, paper, cloth and !>-<r'ri.?v. a-? are use?l
for the more expensive Cambridge issue. The two issues are manu fa? I in d I j the iame paper makers,
leather manufacturers, pr??tew and binders. The saving in price dot me from any skim] ing In
quality of materials or of manufacture. There is no skimping.
(k) We will send you a booklet with reproductions in colorofthedifferent b^dr-i---.- and samplepages;
like : Or both.
(i) "Are the 'Handy Volumes' well bound and solidly
made? I have often been disappointed in the quality
of materials and the workmanship of books that I've
bought from glowing descriptions in circulars and ad?
(k) "I don't like to doubt what you say in your adver?
tisements, ? have had dealings with you and know
other people w ho have bought from j ou. I have alwa* e
been satisfied and I have never heard of anybody who
thought you treated them unfair, bul I want to be sure
before I order. How car, I see for myself the printing,
paper and bindings of the 'Handy Volumes'?*
WE sfend back oj everything we sav in this and all other advertisemenl o? the Encyclopaedia Britannica. We have a reputation for honest and
fair dealing, for understatement instead of any "advertiser's exaggeration or bluster"? a reputation we have worked hard to earn and that we
can modestly say we really deserve.
We know that no one advertisement and no number of advertisements can tell all we know and want you to know about the "Handy Volume"
issue. Remember that we stand back of what we say in these advertisements and besides
We stand back of the whole "Handy Volume" issue. We know that all the details of manufacture, of piic\ of terms, etc., in this off?<?r are
all right. You need have no doubt about them.
