Paris and its Environs with Routes from London to Paris handbook for Travellers.
Leipzig: Karl Baedeker Publisher, 1924. Small 8vo., lviii, 482 pp., 66 color maps including many fold-outs. Full red pebbled cloth, stamped in blind, with gilt title, marbled edges. Backstrip slightly frayed and cracked at joints, some ink notes to endpapers; otherwise good. Nineteenth revised edition, first issued in 1865. The wear to the binding indicates this copy once acting as a close companion to some lucky traveler. The maps and travel plans are meant to aid the traveler so as to make him independent, and thus the captain of his own voyage, immune to the tricks and traps that befall the average tourist, and equipped with up-to-date insider information to thoroughly immerse oneself in the attractions of the country being explored.
