History, tales, and sketches by Washington Irving( Book )

51 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in English and held by 2,911 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A writer of great urbanity and poise, Washington Irving was America's first internationally acclaimed man of letters. Here in one volume are the writings that established his reputation and earned him the admiration of Hawthorne, Poe, Coleridge, Byron, Scott, and Dickens. Written in the character of an elderly gentleman of the old school, "Letters of Jonathan Oldstyle, Gent." is a series of comic reports on the theater, theater-goers, fashions, balls, courtships, duels, and marriages of his contemporary New York. "Salmagundi" continues this roguish style of satire and burlesque, and its freshness, energy, and accomplishment took the Anglo-American literary scene by storm. "A History of New York," a wild and hilarious spoof combining real New York history with political satire, is presented here in its original, unexpurgated version. "The Sketch Book" is a brilliant, captivating story collection that draws on vanishing folkways, depictions of Hudson Valley life, and fable; it contains Irving's best-loved stories, "Rip Van Winkle" and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow."

Bracebridge Hall ; Tales of a traveller ; The Alhambra by Washington Irving( Book )

5 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 2,638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This second Library of America volume of Washington Irving brings together for the first time three collections of his stories and sketches. Bracebridge Hall (1822) was published under the pseudonym Geoffrey Crayon, and centers on an English manor, its inhabitants, and the tales they tell. Interspersed with witty, evocative sketches of country life among the English nobility is the well-known tale "The Stout Gentleman" and stories based on English, French, and Spanish folklore, vividly recounted with Irving's inimitable blend of elegance and colloquial dash. Tales of a Traveller (1824), written after a year-long stay in Germany, is a pivotal work in Irving's career, marking his last experiment with fiction before he turned to the writing of history, biography, and adaptation of folktales. The Alhambra (1832) was inspired by Irving's stay during the spring and summer of 1829 at the ancient Moorish palace in Granada, which he called "one of the most remarkable, romantic, and delicious spots in the world."
