Encyclopedia's 

I own a complete collection of 

Encyclopedia Britannica's 1994  (15th edition)  . I was reading how  autodidacts should own a set encyclopedias and now I do I got it from a library book sale room its about 35 books overall I paid a grand total of... $20!!!

I do value Wikipedia but find it interesting to own a printed set of encyclopedias that new would have cost over 1k. was printed for almost 250 years it is older than the USA it was a tool of the Age of Enlightenment.
