Unter-Ägypten und die Sinai-Halbinsel, 2nd edition (Hinrichsen D486). Apart from the 15 maps and 30 plans it contains 7 views and 76 illustrations. Some of the maps are signed by Heinrich Kiepert. The general map shows the Egyptian Empire extended into the Northern Hedjaz and in the South to the sources of the White Nile.
Baedeker repeatedly visited Lower Egypt himself to ascertain the guide included the most practical information for the traveller. And recruited leading scholars to write for the Lower Egypt guide, including Dr. Samuel Birch on Egyptology and history, with excellent insights. This is the first German edition after the 1881 rebellion and the bombardment of Alexandria by an Anglo-French fleet in 1882 with the defeat of Arabi Pasha. This and succeeding editions are considered Baedeker classics. Egypt formed part of the "Orient Quartet" comprising Palestine and Syria, Egypt, Greece and Turkey.
The guide is in a good shape, complete with all the maps and plans carefully folded up. The book is clean, without notes. The binding is solid, the gilded lettering of title on the front cover and spine are fading away (please see the pictures). The last map (The routes of the Levant) has a tear which had been carefully repaired.
