BAEDEKERS GERMANY - THE COMPLETE ILLUSTRATED TRAVEL GUIDE

Firstly, my sincere apologies for the slightly blurred images - they seemed okay when I took them.

I bought this excellent, now historic, travel guide in 1988, prior to moving to Germany to work at the Northern edge of the Schwarzwald (Black Forest), in the town of Pforzheim, known as the Gold Stadt (Gold Town) because of its jewelry and watch-making industry. At the time the country was still separated, i.e., the wall had not yet been toppled. Consequently, the contents relate to the old Federal Republic of Germany.

The book is in very good condition throughout and comes with a plastic sleeve to protect the cover. There is hardly any yellowing to the pages, despite its age.

The 320 pages contain 142 colour prints, 75 maps and plans, and break down into three major sections:

• Introduction to Germany: contains items such Regions/Climate/History etc.

• Germany From A - Z: All major cities and many minor towns are described in this section with details relating to Area/Population/Famous people/Sights/Restaurants/Events & so on.

• Practical Information: This section contains information on such things as Regulations/Getting About/ Gastronomy/Castles/Palaces etc. & much more.

There is certainly historic value to this item. Also included is a large map covering the old Federal Republic of Germany.
