His 1885 novel The Rise of Silas Lapham is perhaps his best known, describing the rise and fall of an American entrepreneur in the paint business.

Wolfert's roost and other papers, now first collected by Washington Irving( )

1 edition published in 1855 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contains five pieces that might be called short stories: "Mountjoy," a first-person story that originally was to have been developed into a novel entitled "Rosalie"; "The Widow's Ordeal," a story of judicial combat gleaned from the annals of Spain; "The Grand Prior of Minorca," heard from a Knight of Malta who "loved to let his imagination carry him away"; "Guests from Gibbet Island," a legend of Communipaw found among the Knickerbocker papers at Wolfert's Roost; and "The Adalantado of the Seven Cities: A Legend of St. Brandan." Also of interest are two fanciful pieces which lack sufficient plot development to be called short stories: "Don Juan: A Spectral Research," about an amorous Spanish cavalier's encounter with his own funeral, and "Legend of the Engulphed Convent," about a convent miraculously swallowed up in the earth just as ravaging Moors broke down its gate
