Washington Irving: History, Tales and Sketches

The Sketch Book | A History of New York | Salmagundi | Letters of Jonathan Oldstyle, Gent. More
Edited by James Tuttleton

“The Library of America has published a volume of Washington Irving, and though I never intended to read it, I did glance through, and discovered the story of Rip Van Winkle. Rip sits down for a drink, and lo, next thing he knows, 20 years have passed. Just so with a reviewer who sits down for a glance at Washington Irving. One glance leads to several. Chapters slip past, then whole books (four of them appear in this volume), and finally the reviewer limps back to town, beard grown, hair wild, mumbling a crazily antiquated piece of news: Washington Irving is wonderful.” — Voice Literary Supplement
