Crown octavo. pp. xx, 436. Original blue cloth spine and front board elaborately decorated in gilt with a handsome design in gilt of Moorish arabesques and dots. All edges gilt. Washington Irving’s collection of essays, verbal sketches and tales, centred around the eponymous Alhambra Palace in Granada. The illustrations by Pennell are particularly admired. The Alhambra has its origins in Irving’s researches for his history A Chronicle of the Conquest of Granada. One of Pennell’s finest achievements in book illustration, and the artist’s earliest significant work in lithography.
