The Handbook is based on the personal observation of the Editor and his staff, who have repeatedly explored the countries described with a view to procure the latest information; but, as absolute ac- curacy is unattainable, and as changes are constantly taking place, he will higbly appreciate any corrections or suggestions with which travellers may favour him. Those already received, which have often proved most useful (including several from official sources), he gratefully acknowledges. The Handbook is divided into TEN SECTIONS (comp. pp. vii-x), each of which may be separately removed from the book by cutting the gauze backing visible 011 opening the volume at the requisite pages. Linen covers for these sections may be obtained through any bookseller. On the MAPS and PLANS special care bas been bestowed. The present edition contains new maps of the Schneeberg, Raxalpe, and Semmering, the Lungau and Niedere Tauern, the Kitzbiihl Alps and Hohe Tauern, the Ziller-Tal and West Puster—Tal, the Oetztal, Stubai, and Ortler Alps, the Dolomite Alps, the Karawanken and Bacher Mountains, the Austrian Littoral, tbe Styriau and Carin- thian Alps, the Jeschken, lstria, the Dalmatian Coast, the Bocche di Cattaro, Bosnia—Herzegovina, the Bosnian plateau from Sara- jevo to Mostar, the Vrbas Valley, and the Danube from Bezias to Ostrov; also the Environs of Agrani, Aussig, Bodenbach and Tetschen, Botzen, Budapest, Eger and Franzensbad, Gratz, Inns- bruck, Ischl, Nussdorf and Klosterneuburg, Modling and Baden, Arco and Riva, and Trieste. There have also been added new plans (many of them including small maps of the environs) of the Adele— berg Cavern, Aquileia, Banjaluka, Bregenz, Brixen, the Caverns of St. Canzian, Cetinj e, Elbogen, Gastein, Gmunden, Grado, the Hercules Baths, Hermannstadt, Ilidie, Ischl, Jajce, Kassa, Kronstadt, Laxen- 3'- For fuller details coucernin the Al ine reg-ions, seeBaedeker’s Eastern.

For a tour in the remoter parts of Austria some acquaintance with German is desirable; but on the beaten track English or French is generally spoken at the hotels and public re— sorts. In Hungary, on the other hand, foreign languages are very rarely understood, except in the larger cities, the garrison-towns, and tourist—centres. A few remarks on the Polish, Hungarian, and Slavonic languages, which may be useful to travellers in the E. and S. provinces of Austria, and in the Kingdom of Hungary, are given at pp. 369, 439, 289, 416, and 522. MONEY. The Austrian—Hungarian monetary unit, the Crown (Krone ,' Hung. Karena) = 100 Heller, Hung. Filler, was adopted in 1892, when gold was declared the standard and the old paper currency of florins (Gulden) and Kreutzers was abolished. In verbal transactions, however, the old currency is sometimes used, so that the traveller must be on his guard in such cases. (See Money Table inside the cover; and note that 1 floriu = 100 kreutzer: 2 crowns; 1 kreutzer : 2 heller.) The current silver coins are pieces of 1, 2, and 5 crowns, in nickel there are 10 and 20 heller pieces, and in bronze 2 and 1 heller pieces. In gold there are coins of 10, 20, and 100 crowns. There are also bank-notes of 10, 20, 50, 100, and 1000 K. The average exchange for a sovereign (or a German gold piece of 20 marks) is 231/2 K, and for a Napoleon 183/4 K. The travellers should, of course, be careful to employ respectable bankers or money—changers. For large sums English circular notes are preferable to bank—notesor gold; if lost, their value is recover- able. The cheques issued by the great American Express Companies and by the American Bankers Association are also convenient. ’ ' rm Pf AN AND SEASON 0F TOUR. .
