On my morning walk I'm always looking at piles of discarded items on people's nature strips and in hired skips, especially at the books that people throw out. This particular skip contained several in this series of travel books, but I can't actually find a date it was published. Full of black and white photos, fascinating advertisements and interesting maps, 6 of the books came home with me.
 The maps are attached at the spine of the books and are fairly fragile, and in some cases torn away almost completely from the book.

           I love this representation of the city view from the Bodleian library, Oxford University.
