About this title

Synopsis:

Nearly all readers today know Washington Irving as the author of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Irving is one of America's most enduring and beloved authors. Bracebridge Hall, or The Humorists was originally published in 1819 as written by one of Irving's pseudonyms, Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. One of Irving's better-known pseudonyms was Diedrich Knickerbocker, a name inextricably linked to New York City and to today's New York Knicks. Bracebridge Hall's introduction greets readers with Irving's wonderment at being America's first internationally-popular author, for he writes, "I was looked upon as something new and strange in literature; a kind of demi-savage."

About the Author:

Washington Irving (1783 - 1859) was an American short story writer, essayist, biographer, historian and diplomat of the early 19th century. He is best known for his short stories "Rip Van Winkle" (1819) and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" (1820), both of which appear in his book The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. His historical works include biographies of George Washington, Oliver Goldsmith and Muhammad and several histories of 15th-century Spain dealing with subjects such as Christopher Columbus, the Moors and the Alhambra. Irving served as the U.S. ambassador to Spain from 1842 to 1846. Irving, along with James Fenimore Cooper, was among the first American writers to earn acclaim in Europe. As America's first genuine internationally best-selling author, Irving advocated for writing as a legitimate profession and argued for stronger laws to protect American writers from copyright infringement. --Wikipedia
