The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

sleepy01.jpg

Washington Irving’s ghost story is illustrated by Frederick Simpson Coburn for an 1899 edition, with page decorations by celebrated book designer Margaret Armstrong. Coburn’s gloomy plates don’t look so good in this scanned copy but he also produced the many spot illustrations that run through the book. See the rest of the pages here.

    As a colonist, I am naturally somewhat fond of this tale…I own original copies of the RACKHAM edition and this one by ARTHUR KELLER, with copious vignettes
