Guide of Berlin, Potsdam and Environs. A Special Summary from the Notes of the Best Tourists as Baedecker and Others.

Interesting.  WorldCat has the bibliographic information on this, but shows no library holdings.  Either it’s a new and incomplete record, or perhaps some library once had it, then withdrew or lost it.
