Excerpt
Excerpt: The first part of this volume consists of Reviews, articles from the Knickerbocker Magazine, and the Kaatskill Mountains, a contribution to Putnam s Home-Book of the Picturesque, published in 1850. The Reviews of the works of Robert Treat Paine, and the Poems of Edwin C. Holland, are drawn from the Analectic Magazine during the period of Mr. Irving s editorship. The notice of Wheaton s History of the Northmen appeared in the North American in 1832. The review of the Chronicle of the Conquest of Granada, a work emanating from Washington Irving, but purporting to come from the pen of Fray Antonio Agapida, an imaginary personage, was furnished to the London Quarterly, a long time after its publication, at the instance of Murray, his publisher, who ?thought the nature of the work was not sufficiently understood, and that it was considered rather as a work of fiction than one substantially of historic fact.?; It is needless to add that it is in no sense a laudatory review, but simply explanatory of the historical foundation of a work in which he had somewhat mystified the reader by the use of his monkish sobriquet. The articles reproduced from the Knickerbocker date mainly from the year 1839. A majority of Mr. Irving s contributions to that magazine, during the two years he was engaged in writing for it have been incorporated in Wolferfs Roost. Ed.
