About the Author:

William Sydney Porter (1862–1910)—better known as O. Henry—is one of the world's most widely published writers. A master of the short story, he is the author of more than six hundred tales that have been translated into nearly every language. He is best known for his stories about New York City, which include The Gift of the Magi and The Purple Dress.



The illustrated volume of The Gift of the Magi, contains 0. Henry's finest work, including the hilarious Ransom of Red Chief, in which a small boy tortures his kidnappers until the criminals are reduced to begging his parents to take him back. Michael Dooling's fifteen lush color plates capture the heart of each story with a blend of realism, sentiment, and humor. Longtime admirers of 0. Henry, as well as those who have yet to experience the pleasure of reading this master of the short story, will be enchanted by this wonderful collection.
