Trinket Tuesday: Baedeker’s Paris

Today’s trinket is my 1913 copy of Baedeker’s Paris. It is in fragile condition, but the maps still look brand-new. I wonder why the previous owners didn’t use the maps during their early 20th century jaunts through Paris…fullsizeoutput_7fdI teased my husband that I’d walk around Paris with the Baedeker in my hands, but we both know that the book will not travel with me and, instead, will live quietly on a bookshelf in my study.

Trinket Tuesday is where I share some of the lovely things I discover during my travels, research or around town. All pictures are my own (unless I state otherwise). I hope you enjoy!
