Encyclopedia Britannica. There's a special volume which is intendend for people who want to read the Britannica systematically, rather than just looking things up. On the cover, it says: "Propaedia, Outline of Knowledge, Guide to the Britannica." I think it comes with every set, but I could be wrong on that one.
