About this Item: Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Excerpt from Uber Die Quelle Von Washington Irvings Rip Van Winkle The foregoing tale, one would suspect, had been suggested to Mr. Knickerbocker by a little German legend about the Emperor Frederick der Rothbart, and the Ky? hiinser mountain: the subjoined note, however, which he had appended to the tale, shows that it is an absolute fact, narrated with his usual fidelity: The story of Rip van Winkle may seem incredible to many, but nevertheless I give it myfull belief: for I know the vicinity of our old Dutch settlements to have been very subject to marvellous events and appearances. Jndced J have heard many stranger stories than this in the villages along the Hudson; all of which are too well authenticated to admit of a doubt. J have even talked with Rip Van vinkle myself, who, when last J saw him, was a very venerable old man, and so perfectly rational and consistent on every other point, that J think no conscientious person could refuse to take this into the bar gain; nay J have seen a certificate on the subject taken before a country justice, and signed with a cross, in the justice s own hand-writing. The story, therefore, is beyond the possibility of doubt. D. K. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Rip Van Winkle was that curious fellow who, with his dog Wolf, ran away from a hard day's work to the Catskill Mountains in New York. There he discovered a forgotten valley and a band of revelers who gave him a drink that was so powerful he slept for twenty years. His tale still haunts the Hudson River Valley. This is the retelling and re-creation of this classic story. The illustrations of Will Moses bring this American hero to life. A Fine book and a wonderful story.Fine copy in Fine dustjacket. Illustrated by Will Moses, the great grandson of Folk artist Grandma Moses. A wonderful tale and presentation for young people of all ages. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

"At the end of his career, when younger composers eclipsed his reputation, de Koven composed two operas on libretti by Percy MacKaye, The Canterbury Pilgrims and Rip Van Winkle. Having seldom accommodated what he perceived of as a deterioration of musical taste, this autumnal metamorphosis reflects the composer's search for an audience more closely attuned to his ideal." Orly Leah Krasner in Grove Music OnlineSmallens (December 20, 1888/January 1, 1889 - 1972 ), noted Russian-born American conductor, studied at the New York Institute of Musical Art and, from 1909, at the Paris Conservatoire, returning to the USA as assistant conductor of the Boston Opera, 1911-14. After two years as conductor of Pavlova's touring company, including a South American tour, he returned to become conductor of the Chicago Opera, 1919-23. His Chicago association began when he replaced Hasselmans as conductor for the première of De Koven's Rip Van Winkle, and he also gave the première of Prokofiev's The Love for Three Oranges at Chicago in 1921. He was musical director of the Philadelphia Civic Opera, 1924-31, where he gave the American premières of Strauss's Feuersnot in 1927 and Ariadne auf Naxos in 1928, and was also assistant conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra, 1927-34. Later he moved towards a lighter repertory, conducting the première of Gershwin's Porgy and Bess at Boston in 1935." Bernard Jacobson in Grove Music Online. Seller Inventory # 29952
