Washington Irving

Baudry's European Library, 1846 - 336 pages

Washington Irving, born in New York City in 1783, is considered by many to be the father of American literature -- the first major American contributor to the literature of imagination. Some of the delightful portraits in this book (e.g. "Rip Van Winkle") are so familiar that they are recognizable even to those of us who've never read the stories!
