The ghostly tales of Washington Irving

£3.49 Out Of Stock

Product description

Edited by Michael Hayes. Washington Irving is perhaps best known for 'rip Van Winkle' and 'The Legend of Sleepy Hollow', two classics which have never been out of print since their first publication in 1820. But he was also a great teller of macabre and ghostly tales from which Michael Hayes has selected ten of te very best, including 'the Knight of Malta', 'The Phantom Island', 'Legend of the Arabian Astrologer', 'The Devil and Tom Walker' and 'Governor Manco and the Soldier'. Here ancient portraits come alive to take a long searched for revenge, a boy swears eternal love to a beautiful girl who has lived and died before and the ambitious Dom Fernando sets out on a voyage of discovery to the Island of the Seven Cities only to return both sooner and later than he believed was possible. In Washington Irving's strange tales of the imagination only uncertainty is certain. Previous owner's details on first page.

Oxfam Bookshop St Albans

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also sell greetings cards for every occasion. And of course we have some great stock for sale on Oxfam's Online Shop, too. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
