Austria. Grieben’s Guide Book 234, with English text. Vienna and Heidelberg: Verlag Carl Ueberreuter, 1951.

This guidebook to Austria, than which it is scarcely possible to imagine a better, supersedes the older Baedeker. Climbers will be impressed by the excellent maps and by the exhaustive, 18-page list of the huts and refuges in the Alpine areas. The regional groupings not only of huts but also of ski-lifts and mountain railways will help the mountaineer to become oriented rapidly. In the back of the book there are strip maps for the motorist. Among the data brought up to date are those concerning post-War Vienna and the Gross Glockner Road.
