Votre note
This carefully crafted ebook: "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow + Rip Van Winkle + Old Christmas + 31 Other Unabridged & Annotated Stories (The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent.)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon is a collection of 34 essays and short stories written by Washington Irving. It was published serially throughout 1819 and 1820.
The collection includes two of Irving's best-known stories, attributed to the fictional Dutch historian Diedrich Knickerbocker, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and "Rip Van Winkle." "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" is a short story originally published in 1820 as part of a series of sketches under the pseudonym Geoffrey Crayon. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow tells the story of Ichabod Crane - a superstitious school teacher - and how he is driven from the small town of Sleepy Hollow by a headless, horse-riding specter.
The mythic horseman in Irving's Legend was rumored to be the ghost of a Revolutionary War soldier, tragically decapitated by a flying cannonball. "Rip Van Winkle" is a short story by  Irving published in 1819 as well as the name of the story's fictional protagonist. Written while Irving was living in Birmingham, England, it was part of a collection entitled The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. "Old Christmas", published in 1886, is a collection of five Christmas "sketches" by Washington Irving from his famous Sketch Book.
It describes Irving's experiences at the English country estate of Mr. Bracebridge during the "coaching days" of the early 19th century, focusing on the sights, sounds, smells and traditions of "Old" Christmas. Washington Irving (1783 - 1859) was an American author, essayist, biographer, historian, and diplomat of the early 19th century. His historical works include biographies of George Washington, Oliver Goldsmith and Muhammad, and several histories of 15th-century Spain dealing with subjects such as Christopher Columbus, the Moors, and the Alhambra.
