Description


This is a facsimile reproduction of the legendary, highly collectible series which were considered indispensable tools and published with remarkable thoroughness and attention to detail so travelers wouldn't have to use any other information source or find a local tour guide when abroad. It presents with remarkable clarity, fascinating and forthright information about nearly every activity a traveler encounters from etiquette to costs, routes, hotels, restaurants, customs and must-see sites. This guide to Great Britain, 1937 is historically notable for its role in the "Baedeker Blitz" where the Nazi Luftwaffe targeted Exeter, Bath, Norwich, York and Canterbury, not for strategic importance, but to undermine morale by striking buildings marked with three stars in the Baedeker Guide.

Includes more than 25 fold-out maps of Great Britain.
