The publisher is ditching its weighty tomes to concentrate on an internet version, after recognising that knowledge was changing so quickly that they were becoming obsolete as soon as they were issued.

Its handsomely-presented volumes have been in print since they were first published in Edinburgh in 1768.

They will stop being available when the current stock of 2010 editions runs out, the Chicago-based company said. Executives said the end of the printed, 32-volume set had been foreseen for some time.
