Baedeker, Karl, Baedeker's Northern Germany, published by Karl Baedeker, Leipzig, 1897:

From Slow Learner:
"If [...] you believe that nothing is original, and that all writers 'borrow' from 'sources,' there still remains the question of credit lines or acknowledgements. It wasn't till 'Under the Rose' (1959) that I could bring myself, even indirectly, to credit guidebook eponym Karl Baedeker, whose guide to Egypt for 1899 was the major 'source' for the story.
"Loot the Baedeker I did, all the details of a time and place I had never been to, right down to the names of the diplomatic corps." (p.17)
"[...] The old Baedeker trick again." (p.21)
