Manuals of Conversation

As a complement to the travel guides, Baedekers also published various manuals of conversation - books with vocabularies and helpful phrases for the traveller.

The first, and best known venture was with four-language phrase-books (German, French, English and Italian), but there were also Russian guides and grammars. These latter ones are now very rare.
