From the introduction: “The old Austria was rarely explored by the casual traveller, who visited Vienna and Tyrol but knew little of the mountains and lakes and the people of the other provinces. Now that the ancient country is shorn of its vast empire, its nature and its place in the geography of Europe may be appreciated a great deal more easily. And the purpose of this book — if any other justification were needed than the pictures Mr. Harrisson Compton has painted for it — is to suggest what sort of a land this new Austria is, and to touch on a little of the richness and charm to be found there.”
