For Sale: Complete Paul Edwards' Encyclopedia of Philosophy
This splendid reference work was originally published by MacMillan in 1967 under the leadership of analytic philosopher Paul Edwards. The only major English language reference work in prior to that point was a dictionary published in 1901. The work covers all eras, schools, and traditions of philosophy, although the editor-in-chief is open about giving more a little bit more space to the sorts of issues that analytic philosophers are attracted to, with individual entries for "if" and "any and all." I am selling the 1972 compact edition, which has a slightly smaller typeface, and fits in four volumes.
