Have Baedeker, will travel
Founded in 1827, Baedeker Guides gained popularity during the second half of the 19th century. They were books for travellers from the great European imperial powers: Britain and Germany in an age before political correctness.
Today, many people know of Baedeker through the film adaptation of E.M. Forster’s A Room With A View. With their distinctive red covers they are beautiful objects as well as time capusles to another era, sought after by collectors.
