    South-Western France from the Loire and the Rhone to the Spanish frontier; Handbook for Travellers by BAEDEKER, Karl

    Leipzig: Karl Baedeker, Publisher, 1895. Cloth. Fine-. Second Edition. xxiv, 294 pages, with 10 maps and 13 plans (some folding). Nominally the second edition, but Baedeker only published this title once. Publisher's red flexible cloth stamped in blind and gilt with all edges marbled and a green silk page-maker. Almost Fine (but for very light soiling to the covers and a touch of foxing to the edges of several maps), with richly marbled edges; the covers bright, square, and tight, the maps properly folded and free of tears. Scarce, especially in such collectible condition. Hinrichsen E123. "The Romantic movement in Germany had given a new impetus to travel . . . In 1828 Baedeker bought the rights to J. A. Klein's Rheinreise von Mainz bis Köln and, after the death of the author, Baedeker himself revised and updated the work, recreating it for a new market. Using his own travel experiences he guided the tourist to the principal attractions in each place, saving travellers the expense of hiring their own guide. He thus created a new type of guidebook, which was widely copied throughout Europe and opened up tourism to a new class of visitor. The reliability of the information was ensured by annual journeys by Baedeker himself and by reference to respected published sources and expert scholars. . . . For the serious tourist a Baedeker was indispensable, its tone, especially with respect to southern Europeans, assuring northerners of their superiority, and suggesting ways of avoiding dangers. When Lucy Honeychurch finds herself 'In Santa Croce with no Baedeker' in E. M. Forster's A Room with a View (1908) she is entirely lost." (ODNB) Note: With few exceptions (always noted), we only stock Baedekers in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene wrappers.

Described in some detail are the Scientific Museums and Laboratories which of late years have been so largely developed by the University; as also the Botanic Garden, the Observatory, the Fitzwilliam Museum, and the Museum of General and Local Archeology and of Ethnology. The author has also constructed Four Walks, in the course of which everything of importance can be at least looked at; and, lastly, for the convenience of those who are too much hurried to undertake these, he has constructed a Fifth Walk, in which those places only are mentioned which in his judgment are indispensable. Prefixed to these walks is a brief Introduction to the history of the Town, the University and the Colleges."; wear, tears & stains to covers with half of spine missing & small piece from outer corner of rear; corner-creases to bottom of many pages; 200 pages including index - plus local adverts pages at each end.
