    -Being the only Authentic History of the Times that ever hath been published.--from the frontispieceThis single-volume reissue is an exact replication of the two-volume first edition and marks the 200th anniversary of the first publication of Washington Irving's satirical classic. Considered the first major contribution to American comic literature, Irving's debut book lampoons the customs, culture, and political climate of New York during the early nineteenth century. Following a foreword by Brian Jay Jones, esteemed author of Washington Irving: An American Original, Irving's satire begins with the creation of the world and conjures the discovery of what would eventually become New York. He examines the rise and fall of the Dutch Dynasty, the reigns of Governors William the Testy and Wouter Van Twiller, and the rule of Peter Stuyvesant. His frank observations are just as humorous for a contemporary audience as they were in 1809.Using the pseudonym -Diedrich Knickerbocker, - Washington Irving (1783-1859) was a twenty-six-year-old lawyer when he published this sardonic story, which immediately established him as an American literary celebrity. During his career, the native New Yorker created the classics The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle.
