0 Reviews
The Karl Baedeker company published several world-famous travel guides for the benefit of European visitors in Egypt. Filled with maps, descriptions of buildings, catalogs of museum collections and suggested travel itineraries, these crimson-bound books—commonly referred to simply as "baedekers"—were found in the hands of thousands of amateur Egyptologists tromping across the country in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This particular handbook contains maps and travel plans for visiting lower Egypt and the Sinai Peninsula.
