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!
