volumes also include a significant selection of mini-biographies - enabling
inclusion of many more than would have been possible in larger form.
There are nearly 750 main biographies and over 3000 mini-biographies in the
appendixes of some of the volume 2 series.
The subjects of the biographies originate from many different countries, and
come from all walks of life. The main biographies are mostly 2 or more pages
long, and contain valuable biographical and historical information. There are
full page sepia portraits throughout. A helpful introduction by Keith Johnson is included.

time all known variant editions into a single fully searchable product.
High quality scanned images of the whole of the original books. This CD has been
bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged
