A perfect bound paperback replica of Baden-Powell's original 1908 first edition of Scouting For Boys. The book that launched the Scouting movement presented exactly as the author intended.

In May 1908, Baden-Powell released all six of his fortnightly pamphlets under the one cover as this book, Scouting For Boys.

Now, for the first time, you can purchase and read the book which catapulted the Scouting movement into the hearts and minds of the public worldwide! In this new edition, there's no modern long-winded, overly-critical, politically-correct 40 page introduction by a non-Scout with a barely-concealed disdain for BP and his astounding and unequaled legacy of service to the youth of the world.

On this, the 110th Anniversary of the establishment of the Scout Association, the publishers of this edition, who we might add are old Scouts themselves, have painstakingly reproduced directly from a very rare original, the 1908 first edition of Scouting For Boys so it may be presented, read and understood exactly as the Founder, Lord Robert Baden-Powell of Gillwell, intended.

With all original illustrations, this new paperback replica edition brings this exceptionally rare book to a 21st Century audience.
