Do you think it's worthwhile posting older travel guides?  I did a few wishlist searches for the Lonely Planet and Rough Guide series and it looks like 1 person here or there has requested publications from 2002-2005 for various countries...but I'm wondering if those requests are recent.

What do you think?  Are people really interested in these? Seems to me the info is dated...but I'm interested to hear other opinions.

If you have the books, you may as well post them because someone may collect them. I have several older guides: an unofficial guide to Disneyworld, a Paris guide, but I have not posted them because I still like to have them around for comparisons. I collect travelguides but generally like to only add new editions.

I travel a lot and personally, I only use the most recent travel guide I can get my hands on.  Things change too quickly to do otherwise.

I've been happy to get a few of the older DK Eyewitness travel guides here.

I enjoy Great Britain and European travel guides no matter the age as long as they have a lot of pictures...
