Baedeker's Great Britain

I just wanted to share with you, what I think is one of the coolest books ever. :)
I found it burried in the Goodwill bookshelves for a mere $4.00 one day.
It's dated 1910 and as these amazing pull out maps...

Don't you agree, it's one of the coolest books ever? It looks like it's seen a good bit of the world. It's like finding an old friend. :) I hope to take it to England with me next trip and see if anything's changed.

Oh how lovely! I didn't see that you had posted until I posted mine! What an amazing book. $4 is amazing. I would like to peruse it when I am next at your house if I may?
