What's new?


20 Apr 2015

Sorry about the silence - just too much work going on at the moment!

Anyway, there is a Suisse 3 (1857) up for auction at eBay right now - looks decent to me!


9 Mar 2015

There is a bit of a rarity on eBay at the moment - a copy of Deutschland 11 (1864) in fairly good state, although the seller is frustratingly uncertain about the completeness of the book.

Nonetheless, a rare bird - well worth a look!

Weimar und Jena

2 Feb 2015

The smallest of all Baedekers is Weimar und Jena (1932). It is also one of the rarest - but now there's one for you to buy on eBay! It is in reasonable condition - go and have a look!

The AWH bibliography

30 Jan 2015

There is a copy of Alex W Hinrichsen's bibliography - the 2nd and definitive edition - on eBay, here. These are like hen's teeth, so don't miss this opportunity if you are looking for a copy.

One of Mr Baedeker's rare errors

28 Jan 2015

There are amazingly few misprints in the classic Baedekers - the amount of time that must have been spent on proof-reading - in three different languages - is remarkable.

Therefore, those few there are do attract a great deal of interest. Perhaps the best known is on the title page of Austria 12 (1929), where it says "Austria togethep with Budapest..." Most of the misprinted books had the P corrected to an R with ink, but at the moment, there is a rare uncorrected copy available on eBay. Worth a look!
