I just stumbled across this series of books on mediaeval towns from the early 20th century. They sound interesting, and in the case of Europe, many of the places described inside these towns are probably gone by now...
Maybe somebody would like to start another long-term project. :wink: Right now, I can find evidence of 25 books, some of them had several editions. Below are the results of a quick search, if you pick one of these up, you may want to check if there's later editions.
