    1. Very good on the history of labyrinths (mazes seem secondary). Nicely illustrated, good maps of where prominent labyrinths are (so useful for travelers). Some history sections too encyclopedic ("this labyrinth was constructed 1859, this other labyrinth was built").

    2. Fascinating history and beautiful photos and diagrams. A "must read" for anyone interested in labyrinths.
