EDIT
Professor Kenneth Jackson Chronicles New Yorks History in Detail
AIRED:
It?s rare to see the words ?best-seller? and ?encyclopedia? in the same sentence, especially in the Internet age, which has rendered print reference books all but obsolete.

The first edition, published in 1995, sold more than 75,000 copies, and the second edition is going into reprint, after selling almost 13,000 copies. That puts it among the five best-selling books in the history of Yale University Press, its publisher.moreless
