The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. , usually referred to as The Sketch Book, is a collection of 34 essays and short stories written by American author Washington Irving. It was published serially throughout 1819 and 1820. The collection includes two of Irving's best-known stories, attributed to the fictional Dutch historian Diedrich Knickerbocker, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and "Rip Van Winkle". It also marks Irving's first use of the pseudonym "Geoffrey Crayon", which he would continue to employ throughout his literary career.
The Sketch Book , along with James Fenimore Cooper's Leatherstocking Tales, was the first widely read work of American literature in Britain and Europe. It also helped advance the reputation of American writers with an international audience.

This edition has been formatted for your reader, with an active table of contents.  It is also annotated, with additional informative information about the book, including plot information, background information, local impact, interesting facts, and information about the author including biographical and bibliographical information.
