Great Britain Handbook for Travellers.
Leipsic: Karl Baedeker Publisher, 1894. Small 8vo., lxiv, 547 pp., 16 color maps including fold-outs. Full red pebbled cloth, stamped in blind, with gilt title, marbled edges. Backstrip slightly sunned; otherwise very bright clean copy. Ex-library copy with call number written in white on the backstrip, library bookplate to front free endpaper, and card pocket to the final free endpaper. Third edition. 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.
