Lord Robert Baden-Powell of Gilwells’ book ‘Scouting for Boys: A Handbook for Instruction in Good Citizenship’ (1908) meant, besides a worldwide bestseller, no less than the global start of the biggest youth organisation: the World Scout Movement. Since 1908 the book Scouting for Boys has been issued in many countries, languages and editions.
The project ‘Scouting for Boys ‘Round the World’ aims to:
1. provide information about the history of the book Scouting for Boys;
2. provide a global overview of all editions which inspires guides and scouts with their adventures in all corners of the world;
3. invite guides and scouts all over the globe to be of help to this project and
4. provide via this website information about upcoming new issues of Scouting for Boys.
The project is run voluntary. Later on the publication of the book ‘Scouting for Boys ‘Round the World’ is foreseen.
