Description

    A Large Collection of Baedekers

    Twenty Baedeker's Travel Guides Published Between 1894 and 1928, Including a First Edition of the Russian Guide Book.

    All volumes published in Leipsic by Karl Baedeker between 1894 and 1928. Twenty twelvemo travel handbooks, in publisher's limp red cloth boards with gilt lettering. A few maps are detached but present. Almost all maps appear to be accounted for. The previous owners' names are in most, if not all, books, and all belonged to the same impressively tireless world-traveling couple from Des Moines who have made a few inoffensive notes throughout some of these volumes. All are in very good condition.

[and:] Belgium and Holland, Including the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg. 1897. Twelfth edition, revised and augmented. [and:] The Dominion of Canada, With Newfoundland and an Excursion to Alaska. 1907.
