Irving scored an immediate triumph with The Sketch-Book of Geoffrey Crayon, published in 1819. The work舒which contains his best-known tales, 舠The Legend of Sleepy Hollow舡 and 舠Rip Van Winkle舡舒was an international success. In 1826 Irving was appointed a diplomatic attachȳ to the American embassy in Madrid. Ever curious to understand his environment, he began researching Spanish history and customs. The Conquest of Granada was published in 1829, and The Alhambra followed in 1832. Irving finally returned to America in 1832, after a seventeen-year absence.
Their gossip and banter about literary, theatrical, social, and political issues provided the raw material for the early numbers of the pamphlet, which quickly gained notoriety from New York to Philadelphia. The success of Salmagundi may have inspired Irving舗s next project. Along with his brother Peter, he began to write a parody of a well-known guidebook of New York, Samuel Mitchill舗s The Picture of New York; or, The Traveller舗s Guide, through the Commercial Metropolis of the United States (1809).
None of these, however, captured the depth of emotion Irving was able to distill into The Sketch-Book. In 1842 he returned to Europe, having agreed to serve as minister to Spain under the Tyler administration. When he returned to America for good in 1846, he retired to Sunnyside, the 舠neglected cottage舡 situated on the banks of the Hudson, which he had renovated as his own Sleepy Hollow retreat. The major work of his later years was a five-volume biography of his namesake, The Life of George Washington.
