The celebrated American storyteller visited Granada’s medieval Moorish palace, the Alhambra, in 1828. He set up shop to mine the location for material, producing this hybrid of travelogue and legend. In addition to his impressions of Spain, Irving treats the reader to fantastic stories of imprisoned princes, ghosts, genies, and even a headless horse.

The text is reproduced flawlessly with almost no typos. The book is an entertaining account of the time that Irving spent living in the Alhambra, that old "pile" as he calls it. The Alhambra is one of the true wonders of Spain and reading it around the time you visit it enhances that experience. No pictures, however.
