What's new?

Athens result

15 Sep 2014

The E238 went for USD3,272.22 - which is an impressive result. Judging from the starting price on this auction, the seller didn't actually know what he or she had on their hands... it will have been a bit of a surprise!

It does show that Baedekers at the top of the rarity range do keep their price, while the more run-of-the-mill editions (are there any such in the Baedeker range? Ed.) are not doing very well for the time being.

Well done to all involved!

E238 Athens

11 Sep 2014

Well, sorry for the summer break - but there hasn't been an awful lot to write about... I have had a jolly nice summer, hope all readers have, too.


Just returning from my travels this morning I notice, on eBay, a Athens 1 (1896), the amazingly rare special print made for the Olympic Games of 1896. The German equivalent was spotted in 2011, but the English edition I have never seen for sale before.

Quick, before the seller works out what he has got there... :-)

Just spotted on eBay: an Österreich 9 (1860) - not in a great condition but possibly at least complete. Quite a rare edition with a low starting price.

Madeira (1939)

19 Jul 2014

A UK vendor using the handle Dendera has just listed a copy of Madeira 1 (1939) on UKBookworld, Biblio, Abebooks, and Alibris, at a decent price. Here is a link to the Abebooks listing: Madeira 1939. A good chance to complete your collection with one of the most elusive editions!

Not a lot going on...

It is quiet on the auction front and generally not much news to report. The prices are gently falling, but it is maybe just possible there is a bit of a levelling out. Now is probably a great time to start collecting Baedekers!
