A Washington Irving Treasury

Each of the three hardcover cloth-bound books, adorned with ribbon markers and slipcased into a handsome set, are illustrated by a renowned artist: Rip Van Winkle by American artist and illustrator N.C. Wyeth (published in 1921); The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by British book illustrator Arthur Rackham (published in 1928); and Old Christmas by British artist and illustrator Randolph Caldecott (published in 1875). Rip Van Winkle, the haunting tale of strange pre-Revolutionary War happenings in New York's Catskill Mountains, features eight splendid full-color illustrations printed on coated art stock, plus 32 enchanting black-and-white ink drawings. It was The Legend of Sleepy Hollow that propelled Irving to international acclaim, the hair-raising and hilarious tale of the gangly schoolmaster Ichabod Crane vying with The Headless Horseman for the hand of young Katrina, often credited with having established the short story as a legitimate literary genre. Here, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is illustrated with eight four-color illustrations printed on coated art stock and 27 captivating black pen-and-ink drawings. Old Christmas, first published with Caldecott's illustrations for Christmas 1875, was well received as a stylish, enthusiastic celebration of Christmas in rural England. In this essential collection, Old Christmas is faithfully reproduced with the celebrated illustrator's depictions; the five stories--Christmas, The Stage Coach, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and The Christmas Dinner- - return us to a world of holiday excitement, to a state of hallowed and elevated enjoyment illustrated with eight full-page duotones and 94 black pen-and-ink drawings throughout the text.
