Karl Baedeker, Leipzig.1880
£600


All editions of Palestine and Syria published pre 1900 are scarce.

This is the second of seven editions published up to 1910. The author was Dr Albert Socin (Professor of Oriental Languages in Basle). As tourism was still in its infancy in these countries , conditions were fairly primitive . Railways and roads were few and far between and the traveller therefore had to rely on horses or camels.
Endpapers dated 'Januar 1880'.
