Google said it had "returned" the print rights for Frommer's travel books to company founder Arthur Frommer less than a year after acquiring the popular tourist guides.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
Google said in a statement it was "focused on providing high-quality local information to help people quickly discover and share great places" and had been integrating the Frommer's content into Google+ Local and our other Google services.
"We can confirm that we have returned the Frommer's brand to its founder and are licensing certain travel content to him," a Google spokesperson said.
The move comes eight months after Google said it was acquiring the Frommer's brand and its travel content from US publishing house John Wiley & Sons.
Google added the Zagat restaurant review content to its Google+ social network last year, as it rolled out a new local search feature that takes on services such as Yelp.
