Yearbooks for 1991 Set of Compton's Encyclopedias

I have a 1991 set of Compton's encyclopedias. If updates have been published in 1994 and onward for this edition, where could such be found/purchased?

I would start my search on eBay.

This wiki may be helpful to you:

And if I am reading it correctly, you may want to contact the company that now owns the rights and see if they can give you any more info:

The problem with finding updates (yearbooks) to this set of Compton's is that it is one of the last sets published before the company started "changing names/owners".

  • I have seen a 1995, 1997 and a 1999 for sale but not sure about the other years.
  • I would recommend that you send a message to Abe's books asking about the years available and how to locate them. Most books on Abe's site are listed by ISBN so it takes a lot of "looking" to be able to find a particular book.
  • Abe's should be able to tell you the years year books were made and the ISBN numbers so you can locate them on their site.
  • Abe's has a lot of these year books listed and they are usually very reasonably priced but you have to be sure your are looking at year books and not just a "volume" from another set.
  • Here is a link to contact their site:
  • www.abebooks.com/.../?cm_sp=Ftr-_-HelpBlog-_-help2
  • As an example of their books for sale:
  • www.abebooks.com/.../BookDetailsPL?bi=22837800050&searchurl...

  • You can also look on eBay and Amazon for Compton's Encyclopedia Yearbook as both of these sites offer a lot of books of this nature.
  • www.amazon.com/.../0944262376?tag=thrif06-20
  • Searching will be a much easier task if you will contact Abe's books about what years a supplement was published.

I wanted to add that I did find a 2002 year book that might interest you (year not on listing but seller said it was a 2002).

ebay is an obvious start

but also look at book antiquarians and independent books generally

abebooks.com is a good books site, and you can find things like that on amazon.com as well.
