Washington Irving’s Works 1. – 6. Copyright 1867
This is a set of (6) beautiful leather bound books, copyright 1867, by the noted author Washington Irving. These books are part of a complete work of Irving's entitled Irving's Works. Irving was an American author, essayist, biographer and historian. He is perhaps best known for his book The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon Gent (also known as Sketch-Book) in which appears his beloved short stories, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and "Rip Van Winkle". Included in the series of the first (6) books being offered are A History of New York which Irving wrote under the pseudonym Diedrich Knickerbocker and The Sketch Book which was written under the pseudonym Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. This series also contains Irving's Works 3., 4., and 5. which is Volume I, II, and III of The life and Voyages of Christopher Columbus. This was the first project of Irving's to be published with his own name, instead of a pseudonym, on the title page. The last book in this series is entitled Bracebridge Hall, or The Humorists, which was written under the pseudonym Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. Each of these books contain a beautiful steel engraving on (2) pages preceding the title page. This set of books is in very good condition. All hinges are securely attached. Some rubs, light usage wear, mostly external rubs/wear. Tightly bound and very fresh internally. No bookplates but each book contains the handwritten owner’s name “Mrs. Pitt Kellogg.” (To the best of my ability to read the handwriting.) Approximate Size: 5 ¼” W x 7 ½” L Irving’s Works 1.
