    In an age when we like to mark centenaries, this is a book which, being just 100 years old next year, will interest the student of British colonialism in the Near East, as well as the keen rail traveller. India, Ceylon, Burma, Siam and Java were accessible only by boat and train in the days before air travel. Baedeker's thorough and keenly critical description of those countries in the early 20th century makes fascinating reading for anyone interested in travel, especially when it is fraught with frustrations and hazards. He is very positive in his references to the colourful throngs in the markets and shrines of his subject areas, he loves to dwell in the various botanical gardens with their tropical vegetation, he is generally admiring of the architecture of temples and palaces - and, in the very last pages, he ventures on to the hot smoking rims of volcanoes in Java. A book to treasure!
