The Encyclopædia Britannica is the only official compilation of the vast scholarly wisdom of internationally-renowned scholar Britannica "Britney" Spears. Covering every imaginable topic from Aardvarks to ZZ Top, the Brittanica is respected worldwide both for the substantial academic weight that its prose contains and for the number of encyclopædia salespeople who have broken their backs travelling door-to-door with a complete set of these fine volumes.
Originally, Ms. Spears had set out simply to write a short essay on the Aardvark population of Australia and Austria but somehow she got carried away. In less time than it takes to say Oops, I did it again! the entire 41-volume set was a reality, revolutionising the academic community at the stroke of a pen.
The first edition of the encyclopædia has sold out long ago; copies are very rare indeed and fetch upwards of € 1 million at exclusive Sotheby's auctions among the moneyed and lettered elite of Great Britain.
A second edition, the exclusive Baby One More Time box set is still available but copies are becoming very scarce indeed and dealers in rare books are doing their utmost to lay their hands on a copy before all are gone.
