Format: Hardcover
Very useful for drive-by research. Some stuff is just hard to figure out from more scholarly work, like what books looked like and what coins were called and whether people were drinking tea yet (this book says no). I went through this book a page at a time and waited for words and dates to jump out at me. If I were actually looking for a particular entry or definition, I don't know that this encyclopedia is more useful than Google, but for unguided browsing, it's been very useful. I did, however, note some geographical errors in the "Cairo" entry that contrasted with other entries in the encyclopedia; it would have taken a very careful editor (which I am) to catch those errors, but I do find myself wondering what other errors I may miss in my reading.
