A Great Cyclopedia at Little Cost,
A unique publication, remarkable in
many respects, is the Polyglot Cyclo
pedia, in 40 volumes, about 28,000
pages and 7,000 illustrations. It is
the largest but one of American Cy
clopedias, and includes in one alpha
betical order a Library of Universal
Knowledge, an Unabridged Diction
ary of the English language, a Gazet
teer of the world, Cyclopedias of Bi
ography, History, Natural History,
Science, Religious Knowledge, Me
chanics, Education, Mythology, Dic
tionary of Synonyms, Antoyms, Pseu
donyms, Characters In Fiction, Quo
tations, notable words and phrases
from all foreign languages which are
frequently found in English literature,
also Dictionaries of the Latin, French
and German languages, etc., et.
It is in ideal handy volumes, about
700 pages each, which don't need a
"derrick" to handle tho only such
Cyclopedia; Its peculiar form and ar
rangement make it possible to be kept
up-to-date moie thoroughly than other
Cyclopedias; every title is pronounced
a feature of great merit possessed
by no other Cyclopedia; it is of the
highest scholarship, the work of a
small army of eminent writers and
trained cyclopedists: its numerous
maps are excellent and In a separate
volume (making 41 volumes) full atlas
size, instead of being foolishly fool
ishly folded and scattered among
many volumes; its largo type and
handy form make it easier for the eye
than other Cyclopedias; a Revolving
Book Case supplied at nominal cost
gives the final touch of convenience
and utility to the Cyclopedia.
Perhaps tho most wonderful feature
about It is the nominal cost as com
pared with other high-class Cyclope
dias, and, if desired, unusually easy
terms of payment.

paid to The Sun readers who will
within one week inclose this notice and
