Riguardo questo articolo

New York: Knickerbocker Press G B Putnam, 1895. These are near-fine, perfectly preserved copies of the Van Tassel edition in white calf, heavily decorated on the spines and front panels in gilt and green designs, with beveled boards, top edges gilt, and accompanied by the original dustwrappers in heavy maroon paper with gilt lettering. There is faint foxing on the the rear panels and along the beveled edges, and a 1914 inscription on a front endpaper. The pages are decorated with mistletoe or holly & ivy around the text blocks. These books feature 32 "sketches", including such classics of early American literature as "Rip Van Winkle" and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." The sketches were first published in America -- in seven wrappered volumes, beginning in June 1819 and ending in September 1820. The Van Tassel edition highlights four early plates by Arthur Rackham as well as 28 other by leading artists. A fine example of late nineteenth century book-making. . Irving and James Fennimore Cooper were two early American authors who established litereary credentials for early America. Codice inventario libreria 8618
