I just love the heading on this eBay auction...

...for €1017.89 - not bad! Well done to all involved.

The very rare Hollande et Belgique 1 (1859) has been spotted on eBay, in a reasonable state - the cover somewhat broken around the spine, but otherwise apparently in decent order. And no gigantic starting price either...
Helbig's Klassische Altertümer in Rom
14 Nov 2013
You may have noticed, on eBay, this offering, if you have been searching for Baedeker-related items. It is Vol 1 of a two-volume work by Wolfgang Helbig, a German archaeologist who supplied many articles on archaeology to Baedeker guides at the end of the 19th century.
You can find some information about this in the Reisen und Leben section, for example on this page.
Not a Baedeker post at all

Just in case you have an unstoppable passion for the local history of obscure places (and why not?), you might be interested in Early Essays on Newenden, which is your editor's first venture into self-publishing. It has been written for a local charity and all proceeds from the sale of the book go to them.
It is also available through Amazon (just search for the title), and there is even a Kindle version (though that is surely anathema to us collectors of antiquarian books...)
