History[change | change source]

The New International Encyclopedia was an update of The International Cyclopaedia, which was last published in 1884. In turn, the International Cyclopaedia was largely a copy of Alden's Library of Universal Knowledge. That in its turn was a reprint of Chambers's Encyclopaedia. The original 1902 edition was edited by Harry Thurston Peck, Daniel Colt Gilman, and Frank Moore Colby.[1]

The encyclopedia was printed in 1904, 1905, 1907, 1909, and 1911. Then a second edition was made from 1914 to 1917. By that time Peck and Gilman had died, so Talcott Williams helped edit. A 3rd edition was made in 1923, and more subjects were added to it in 1927 and 1930. A final edition was made in 1935.[1]

Some of the last edition became part of Funk & Wagnalls Standard Encyclopaedia.
