54 pp + b&w plates and "Notes on the Prints", 11" H. "Washington Irving's two tales, 'The Legend of Sleepy Hollow' and 'Rip Van Winkle' have remained a permanent feature on the American literary landscape long after the bulk of his twenty-four volume work has faded into scholarly obscurity. Present-day readers can be grateful that Irving forsook the study of law for literature on the basis of these two works alone. Edgar Allen Poe called him 'the most deservedly eminent among all the pioneers of American literature', and he was accepted as a peer by contemporaries Sir Walter Scott and Lord Byron. Irving kept a sketchbook of his travels, and his painter's eye has attracted such master illustrators as Barry Moser, whose wood engravings were created especially for this volume and who also designed the text." A few tiny minor scuffs to top edge of boards, remainder mark on bottom of text block. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling, small ghost sticker mark on fornt panel, tiny scuff and a tiny white dot in title on front panel, minor soiling on rear panel.
