The 1910-1911 Encyclopedia Britannica was advertised as "the high water mark of human knowledge." That 34 of the 1,500 contributors were women was widely perceived as signaling a significant breakthrough into the world of learning. The book examines public and private aspects of the women contributors' lives and includes short biographies.
