Actually I do not collect Wander books but this one got my attention as it is the most extensive traveled wander book I ever saw. Issued 1845 by the Kingdom of Bavaria to a journeyman named “Reither”. The book has 145 pages and ALL pages are full with entries and stamps. Some pages have 3-4 entries and I was counting a total of 306 different entries. All was done within six year of his journey across Germany. The last entry was from 1851. A fantastic book telling the history of this journeyman and the history of domestic travel crossing several kingdoms and duchies.
