The Beauties of Washington Irving, Esq
Thomas Tegg and Son, 1835 - 306 σελίδες
Washington Irving essentially put American literature on the map in early nineteenth-century Europe, and his works were so popular there that numerous European editions were published throughout the century. In this 1835 collection, a wide range of short stories and sketches by the "accomplished American" were selected by a London publishing house, and the impressive range and scope of Irving's body of work can be seen just by glancing through the table of contents. From biting satire on local politics ("The Grand Council of New Amsterdam - with Reasons Why an Alderman Should Be Fat"), to a humorous account of a young couple's behavior while waltzing ("The Waltz"), the works included in this collection show why Irving was considered a master of the short story.
