Description

By Washington Irving, illustrated by N.C. Wyeth, Arthur Rackham and Randolph Caldecott

Beautifully printed, this elegantly produced collection of three classic Irving masterpieces captures the magic of folktales and makes the perfect gift for the holiday season. All three of these time-honored Washington Irving tales first appeared in his best- selling The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. in 1819. The high-spirited tales Rip Van Winkle and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow present memorable folk characters that have become part of Americas literary lexicon, while Old Christmas preserves the nostalgia, warmth, and joy of Merrie Olde English Christmas traditions. Each of the three hardcover cloth-bound books, adorned with ribbon markers and slipcased into a handsome set, are beautifully illustrated with original paintings and drawings: Rip Van Winkle (N.C. Wyeth); The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (Arthur Rackham); and Old Christmas (Randolph Caldecott).
