March 6 / Rip Van Winkle & Other Stories by Washington Irving
Facilitated by Shelley Savini-Kroger
In conjunction with For America: Prints of the American Art-Union. "The legendary enchantment of Rip Van Winkle in the Kaatskill Mountains; the gruesome end of Ichabod Crane, who met the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow; the Spectre Bridegroom who turned out to be happily substantial; the pride of an English village and the come-uppance of the over-zealous Mountjoy - these witty, perceptive and captivating tales range from fantasy to romance. Well respected in both America and Europe for his lively and often satirical pieces, Washington Irving is best remembered for his wonderful supernatural tales, most notably Rip Van Winkle and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Also included in this collection are The Spectre Bridegroom, Westminster Abbey and other delightfully spooky and spectacular stories. — Barnes & Noble
