Great Britain Handbook for Travellers.
Leipzig: Karl Baedeker Publisher, 1906. Small 8vo., lxvi, 606 pp., 22 color maps including many fold-outs. Full red pebbled cloth, stamped in blind, with gilt title, marbled edges. Lacking title-page, tail of upper joint has a small tear; otherwise good. Sixth edition, revised and augmented. Title page was likely lost as some weary traveler carelessly opened the facing fold-out map time and time again while planning an excursion. 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.
