3,ew Cabinet Editions of the Worksof
In announcing several new editions, in
a style of improved elegance and conve
nience, of the Worksof Washington Irving,
the publishers would take the opportunity
of acknowledging the good reception
which his efforts in the presentation of
these favorite writings have heretofore re
ceived. In the several forms in which the
various productions of the author of the
"Sketch-Book' have been given to the
public, it is estimated that the sale has
reached no less than fifty thousand of the
series, or more than a million volumes.
Nor is the demand yet abated. On the
contrary, new exertions of enterprise are
required to meet the desires of a new gen
eration of readers, and keep pace with the
progress of taste and refinement in th
typographic and other mechanic arts of
the publisher's calling.
The motive of this perennial popularity
is not far to seek. It is to he read oil
every page of the delightful volumes in
which "Ceoffrey Crayon" infused lhe
happy inspiration of his genius in his de
votion to themes which will always be re
garded by successive generations of rea
ders with no ordinary emotions of interest.
The charm of the felicitous style of Wash
ington Irving, the reflection of the amiable
poetic spirit of the truly refined gentle
man, would be felt on any topic on which
'he author had been pleased to bestow it
Hut it is for the ever-enduring fame ol
Irving that lie close for the exercise of his
pen, topics of undying value and import
ance. In his inviting Essays on human
life and character in porirayin manners,
as in the "Sketch-Rook." Rracebridux'
Hall,'' and other volumes, he has touched,
with mingled sentiment and humor, those
emotions which are implanted in the hearts
of all; while his topics of biography, of
history and romance, are of such world
w.de celebrity and passion te interest as
:he story ot 'Columbus and his followers,
with their discoveries of the New World ;
lhe life of the founder of the nation.
Gi:oi;i;k Washington, drawing with it the
narrative of the Civil and .Military even's
ot America during his remarkable" career :
the marvelous record of Mahomet, with lhe
illustrations of lhe genius of Irs race in
the romantic fact and legend of ' The
Tales of lhe Alhambra" and the -Conquest
of Granada ;'; the felicity with which
the a-.Jtior has linked his name with the
birthplace of Shakespeare, the genius of
Oliver Goldsmith, the fame of Scott and
Ryron, ami, not leat. the humorous in
vention which, in Kmckei bocker's irie
sistible Chronie'e of New York, has im
puted a my thie interest to the bare early
annals ot his native city. It is that the
writings of Washington Irvimr ir.av be
c'aiined to be imperishable, till, what .is
not likely soon to happen, the same ever-
welcome themes are treated in some hap
pier manner. The charm of Irving is his
acceptability to all. a grace ami refine
ment to please the inn.-; fastidious ; and
his peculiar merit, is readily appreciated
by every reader; his good, sense and hu
mor, the air of enjoyment pervading his
pages, has secured his works a home in
boih hemispheres, wherever the English
language is understood. Of the few in
dispensable authors in every American
library. Washington Irving is certainly
among the foremost. The delight of child
hood, the ehivahic companion of refined
womanhood, the solace Of life at every
period, his w riting-; are an imperishable
legacy of grace and beauty to his coun
trymen. The new publications of these works
wiil be in several forms of unusual ele
gance, and ail. in proportion to a moderate
price for each, combining good taste with
economy. The series w ill be issued in th
following order punctually on the first day
of each month until completed, beginning
