Complete set of 23 1950's Encyclopedia Britannica with 2 Britannica World Language Dictionary Funk & Wagnalls Edition copyright 1956. The complete set consists of 25 books! This set comes with the perfectly fitting solid wood bookcase that measures 24" x 28". The books all seem to be in terrific vintage condition! I have not inspected every one of them but I doubt there's any damage. They do have vintage wear on the covers. Beautiful home decor for any study, living room or bedroom!

With the books all in place in the case it's extremely heavy. I have to figure out the best way to ship this. I'm sure if the books are boxed up they can go as a book rate and ship at a discount, with the bookcase shipped separately. I'm going to estimate the shipping cost but you can contact me for an exact quote before sending payment.

Frequently asked questions about OrWaDesigns

We love custom orders! Send us a message with what you want and if we can build it, we will! Send photos, drawings, dimensions, etc.... We NEVER charge extra for custom. We only charge extra or charge less if dimensions or additions change enough to alter the price up or down.
We use non toxic water based polyurethane to finish our furniture. This provides a smooth finish that brings out the beauty in the wood and is great for standing up to moisture. Simply wipe clean with a water damp rag or use wood cleaner, such as Murpheys orange or Method almond wood cleaner. We also like to use the natural disinfecting wipes, they work great too.
Damage rarely happens because we are professional packagers. If it does happen, we don't make you file the claim like other furniture makers do, we file the claim for YOU! All shipments are insured. Any damage claims will be handled on a case by case basis. If your furniture does arrive damaged, take photos right away and notify us. Repair kit, partial compensation, full compensation or a replacement will be issued, depending on the circumstances.
Timber is usually classified as either hardwood, from broad leafed trees like beech and oak, or softwood from conifers like pine and fir. Simply because they're replaceable, fast-growing species like pine trees tend to be more sustainable than slow-growing trees like oak and walnut. Bamboo is a hard grass, harder than wood and grows like weeds. It's is a super sustainable option for hard wood furniture. It is harder than wood.

Solid pine: quality affordable solid wood, sustainable.

In the furniture business, returns are more difficult. Furniture is large, fragile and difficult to package. We can accept returns on legs, since they are easy to package and do not damage in shipping.
