In this edition the views have been eliminated except for the attractive folding panorama of Jerusalem. This is the famous edition which gave rise to a lawsuit brought by Howard ( a hotel owner in Jaffa and Jerusalem) against Baedeker with reference to some disparaging remarks in this volume about his hotels. Howard won the lawsuit and Baedeker was ordered to remove the critical comments. However in the next edition Howard's hotels were omitted and his business suffered greatly as a result.
