About This Item

Leipzic, K. Baedeker, 1897-01-01. Hardcover. Very Good. 16mo. Red cloth. lxiv, 556 p. illus., maps. 16 cm. Clean, unmarked pages. Front end page and map detached. Colored fold-out maps appear in mostly excellent shape, without tears or excessive wear. First page and map however are no longer attached at the top and there is a portion of the map missing. Good binding. Name on first page. Sunning to spine. <br><br>Founded in 1827, Baedeker guides gained popularity during the second half of the 19th century (so much so that Baedekering became part of everyday language). They were an invaluable and essential part of civilized travel in the fin-de-siecle. Baedeker guides were known for both their accuracy and attention to detail. Included in each are intricate colored fold-out maps and floor plans. Baedekers comments and recommendations open a fascinating window into the mores of a world now past.<br><br>
