Bracebridge Hall, or, The Humorists
In Two Volumes
By Geoffrey Crayon [Washington Irving]
1822 - London - John Murray
8.5" by 5.5"; (iv) 393pp.; 404pp.
A copy of this classic collection of intertwining stories by American novelist Washington Irving.
Bracebridge Hall, or The Humorists, A Medley was written 1821, while he lived in England, and published in 1822. This episodic novel was originally published under his pseudonym Geoffrey Crayon.
As this is a location-based series of character sketches, there are a number of individual plots. The tales centre on the occupants of an English manor (based on Aston Hall, near Birmingham, England, which was occupied by members of the Bracebridge family and which Irving visited). Each chapter documents the story of a different character.
BAL suggests that all copies issued by Murray under the date 1822 be considered with equal primacy until evidence is provided to the contrary.
First Englishedition, with 404pp. in volume two.
Rebacked in calf with original boards. Externally sound, though with some wear to the extremities and a few marks to the boards. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and mainly clean, with just the odd spot. Overall: GOOD with a VERY GOOD interior.
