...a journey

In 1815 Washington Irving sailed to England to help his brother, Peter,
run his business and while there he kept a notebook
from which he developed his famous Sketch Book
published 1820 under the pseudonym Geoffrey Crayon...

In 1975 the Angelica Press Corp republished this work
{in a 2000 copy edition set in 12 point Scotch Roman}
which I acquired soon after.

This edition has become my favourite book to [re]read
at Christmas time because (as the publisher has noted):

"Irving wrote this story to uplift his readers' spirits in those "days of evil'.
....These days, evil or not, we hope the effect will be the same!"
