Looking for a 1960s Era Illustrated World Encyclopedia Set

Category Books

I am looking for a particular encyclopedia, circa 1960. I believe it was called the Illustrated World Encyclopedia or something like that. It was a set of about 20 volumes and the defining value of this set was, that in the rear of each volume was an alphabetical synopsis of many classic literary works. I loved reading these as a child and was wondering if anyone knew of the existence of these books. The books were about 6 inches x 10 inches and were a brownish color.

I was looking to sell a set of these books. I know this is a very old post, but if interested I have the 21 piece set. Honestly they are in mint condition. Never opened as far as I can tell. They belonged to my mother/father in-law.
