Robert Baden-Powell's 'Scouting for Boys' is published

15th January 1908

The first edition in a series of by-weekly activities booklets entitled Scouting for Boys was published. It cost 4d and flew off the shelves, as did all the editions that followed. It became the handbook of tens of thousands of new scouts up and down the country and inspired boys up and down the country to form groups to carry out B-P’s scouting instructions.
