New Washington Irving Treasury Box Set Published

Three time-honored stories by Washington Irving, classic tales told again and again, have been released together in the cloth-bound box set A Washington Irving Treasury (Universe Publishing, 2012). The high-spirited stories of Rip Van Winkle and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow present memorable folk characters that have become part of America’s literary lexicon, while Old Christmas preserves the nostalgia, warmth, and joy of English Christmas traditions.

Irving’s most famous tales have been elegantly produced in three hardcover cloth-bound books, adorned with ribbon markers and slip-cased into a handsome set. The stories are beautifully illustrated with original paintings and drawings, making this collection the perfect gift for children new to the stories, as well as adults who are already fond of these favorites. The three slip-cased volumes total 392 pages and include 24 color and 150 black and white original paintings and drawings by N.C. Wyeth, Arthur Rackham, and Randolph Caldecott.
