The Volume Library, A Concise, Graded Repository Of Practical And Cultural Knowledge Designed For Both Instruction And Reference was a one volume general encyclopedic reference work that was published from 1911 to 1985. It remained as a two or three volume reference work until at least 2004. The publication began in 1911 by W. E. Richardson of Chicago. It was edited by Henry Woldmar Ruoff New editions were published in 1912 and 1913, the latter under the imprint of R. P. Trosper. This historical book would be magnificent displayed in your home office, in a man cave or on your mantel. It is in good condition. The hardback canvas cover is lightly worn on the corners with a couple of cracks on the front. There is some spine fade and light rubbing. Given its age and use, it is very clean and the gilt lettering on the spine is still very legible. The volume is believed to be a 1957 printing. The first four pages of the volume are missing which includes the title, publishing and copyright pages. We have reprinted those four pages from an online copy and they are included.
