Les Bords du Rhin by Karl Baedeker. Illustrated with 63 maps and 63 plans. French language edition.
Published 1910, Leipzig, Karl Baedeker. Dix-huitieme edition.
pp. 404. Typical red cloth, gilt lettered spine & cover. Marbled edges, profusion of folding maps & plans.
With the scarce ephemeral original dust jacket, which 99 out of 100 times was quickly discarded by early purchasers. Jacket is complete but flaps are separated, spine ends are chipped, protected in mylar sleeve and looking entirely acceptable (although not perfect). Book is clean, tight, and fresh overall, any age flaws minor. Early owners name at top of title page.
Book remains well preserved and very attractive on the shelf. It displays a beautiful age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
