So wot’s it worth, in this case one of the Thanet red guides, the same book sometimes being called Margate, Ramsgate or Broadstairs but not Thanet.
This one is the 7th edition which is thought to date from around 1922, a time when there wasn’t much between travelling to Thanet by boat or train.
What it’s worth is really related to where it is, most bookshops have a few of these usually priced between a couple quid and a fiver each and if they have the one local to their area then it’s probably around a tenner and I would think an astute person who reckoned the value of their time at less than the minimum wage could eventually get all of the ones the wanted for about the cost of posting them.
If you find yourself in a bookshop a long way from Thanet and you want one of these guides cheaply, best to ask. On the whole in terms of value for money they are pretty good.
So some sample maps and pages next
