BAEDEKER, Karl. Manuel de Conversation Pour Le Voyageur, En Quatre Langues, Français, Allemand, Anglais, Italien, Avec Un Vocabulaire, Un Choix De Questions, Etc.

(Leipzig, Germany): Karl Baedeker, no date (c.1898).  Stereotypee Edition. 16mo.  IX, 331 pages.  A nice clean copy of this travellers handbook which quite apart from being unintentionally hilarious in places, casts interesting light on the aspirations and needs of the middle class traveller to foreign parts.  A very good copy, short closed teat to base of half-title, in red cloth with gilt lettering.  This copy with a very good example of the scarce dustwrapper with title label to the spine.
