The last preceding review is correct. The publication date is 1888. There was no 1833 edition of the Britannica and the internal dates make it clear that the date must be at least 1876. It's clear that the date on the title page is either 1888 or some other combinations of 8s, 9s, 0s and 6s, but no 3s. The second digit is clearly an 8 and the first digit is not a 9. So it must be "88".
