As I had to get up early anyway on sunday, I decided to get up really early and go to the flea market. Most of the stuff they had there was 80ies crap, but I found some nice books, including this handbook for drivers and car-owners from 1914. It explains everything you needed to know to get a drivers licence in 1914, which includes knowing how your car actually works and how to repair it.

I also got an engineers handbook from 1896, which belonged to a railway engineer. It still has a paper in it with a mark from the Königlich Bayrische Staatsbahn, the royal railway of bavaria. Maybe some scans will follow...
