OPINIONS OF THE PRESS.
"Bsedeker is, as is well known, a singularly accurate and useful guide
. . . . his information is comprehensive, minute, and carefully compiled."
London, 1867. Pall Mall Gazette.
"More convenient in form . . . than the red books of Albemarle Street,
the red books of Coblenz are handier for the pocket or the knapsack, and
are terser and more to the point in their style."
London, 1867. Spectator.
"We can cordially recommend Beedeker's Handbook, as at once con¬
venient in size, and, at the same time, comprehensive and accurate in its
Glasgow, 1867. Daily Herald.
"Beedeker's Paris is an excellent book for nine out of every ten visit¬
ors to Paris. It tells all they want, and not more than they want. . . .
Although it contains much letter-press, it will really go easily into the
pocket. The maps are very ingeniously managed. Calais, Boulogne, Dieppe
and Rouen have all their maps and short remarks. The routes to London,
the Rhine and Switzerland are all described. There are also numerous plans."
London, 1865. Reader.
"Beedeker's Handbooks have a great reputation all over the continent of
Europe, and for years have been distributed in numerous editions."
London, 1863. Reader.
"We should be inclined to prefer Baedeker, who judiciously notes briefly
the more essential points, but has not room to distract you with too many
particulars; and you are not tempted to waste time in reading when you
should be looking.....The numerous maps and plans of cities with
which the work is furnished are the best and most conveniently arranged
we have ever seen in a guide-book".....
Ed in burgh, 1867. Scotsman.
"For all who do not care for elaborate description, doubtful criticism
and a profusion of historical reminiscences . . . there are no guide-books
like Beedeker's. They are of convenient size, contain everything that the
ordinary traveller wants to know, told accurately, sensibly, and succinctly.
Their list of hotels and restaurants is generally trustworthy, and may be
consulted with confidence by persons to whom expense is of some conse¬
quence. The Handbook of Paris before us is excellent in every way."
New York, 1867. Nation.
The Doldenhorn and Weiase Frau. Ascended for the first time
by Abraham Roth and E. von Fellenberg. With 11 coloured
Engravings, 4 Woodcuts and a coloured Map in the scale of
1:50,000. Coblenz, 1863. Royal 8vo, cloth 7 s. 6 d. ; sewed 6 s.
.... The coloured engravings, from sketches by Ph. Gosset and E.
von Fellenberg, are really beautiful, and, with J. R. Stengel's coloured
map, aid the narrative wonderfully. The book is one to be possessed by
all Alpine climbers.
"The Reader", November, 1863.
.... The plates throughout the book are particularly well executed,
and will prove pleasing to all who are interested in scenery of this char¬
acter. We do not remember any of like kind and size that equal them.
"Athen^um", December, 1863.
