(4 reviews) Write a Review

The quintessentially British almanac, Pears' Cyclopaedia continues to inform and intrigue generations of readers with its unique mix of solid facts and fascinating gems. Now in its 126th year, this ultimate volume offers clear and concise information on such wide-ranging subjects as global events, Norse mythology and modern cinema. Updated regularly by editor Chris Cook and his panel of experts, this handy and beautiful edition includes new entries for all major events from 2017-18 and all the traditional favourites - from public figures and celebrities, through medical matters and classical mythology, to a gazetteer of the British Isles and the latest tax advice. This is a world of knowledge rolled into one must-have volume - the Swiss army knife of reference books.

    Final Issue of Pears.

    Posted by Unknown on 29th Jan 2018

    A bit disappointed in the change of format. The
    gazetteer is only of the British Isles, not the world.

    It is such a shame

    Posted by Ceinwen Ellis on 29th Jan 2018

    Always an excellent source of reference. Why have they ceased publishing it? So much better a book on your table to find information than googling everything
