Russia, with Teheran, Port Arthur, and Peking. Handbook for Travellers

Leipzig, Karl Baedeker, Publisher, 1914.

Sextodecimo, lxiv, 590 pages with all 40 maps and 77 of the 78 plans called for (many are in colour, folding, and double-page) plus front endpaper advertisements and a rear endpaper map. The missing plan is the inner city of St Petersburg (facing page 103).

Limp red cloth, all edges marbled; spine a little sunned; covers a little rubbed and bumped at the extremities, with trifling wear to the head and tail of the spine; two ribbon bookmarks (one now detached but still present); short tears to the stub panel of the frontispiece map; a few minor signs of use and age; early ownership signature on the front pastedown and page 53; a very good copy.

The list of Baedeker's Guide Books printed on the front endpaper lists no editions later than 1914.
