Product Description


This edition of the Alhambra, here republished in facsimile from the 1908 edition, complete with the illustrations by Joseph Pennell, presents a welcome opportunity to reassess Irving’s European writing. The author first visited Granada in 1828, and revisited the city many times, living within the precincts of the Alhambra and having access to the many historical documents housed there. The Alhambra is a more personal study, reflecting the author’s enchantment with the splendour of the palace and his intimate knowledge of the history of the Moors in Spain.
