Italy Travel Guide: Books

Collecting Vintage Travel books

from UK dealer Peter M. Daly for 17£

Thanks to the Gutenberg project many vintage guides can be downloaded for free and read on your iPad or Kindle device.

An example is a travelogue by Edward Wigran “Northern Spain” (1906), full of interesting facts about Asturian villages with colorful illustrations.

A copy of the original will put you back $195, if you can find it.

To discover the value of your vintage guides and travel books, make a search on the websites such as abebooks, alibris, biblio and addall.

Other sources for finding old and vintage travel books and guides are these websites: oldguidebooks, as well as the thousands of Italian booksellers who list on the mega site maremagnum.

fodor's 2009 italy & florence/tuscany guides are also great with lots of pictures and the book is laid out so it's easy to read.
i am going to sicilia and toscana in may as well.
