Baedeker's Southern Germany & the Austrian Empire

1868 first edition - very rare. I can't find anything earlier than a third edition (1873) for sale worldwide online.

There is a 2" tear to the town plan of Vienna. Page edges grubby. A few black spots to front board, possibly ink. Owner's name in ink to ffep (which carries 'Opinions of the Press'.) The same owner's name and 'Stuttgart July 1869' in pencil to half-title. Pages age-toned, small corner creases here and there. Two small closed tears to back paste down.
