Today's book is a two volume edition of The Sketch Book by Geoffrey Crayon. Crayon was the pseudonym of Washington Irving.Originally published in parts in 1819/20, the bibliography of the early book editions is a bit sketchy,(couldn't help myself.) This is an English edition from 1822.What, you may ask, is the significance of this book? It includes the first appearance of "Rip Van Winkle."
