In 1809, New Yorkers were buzzing about a series of classified ads concerning the whereabouts of Dutch historian Diedrich Knickerbocker. They were unaware that Washington Irving had invented the man entirely and placed the ads himself.MoreIn 1809, New Yorkers were buzzing about a series of classified ads concerning the whereabouts of Dutch historian Diedrich Knickerbocker.

They were unaware that Washington Irving had invented the man entirely and placed the ads himself. Knickerbockers purported manuscript, A History of New York, was Irvings own. Told from Knickerbockers point of view, A History of New York is a chronicle of New Yorks fifty years under Dutch rule in the 1600s that plays fast and loose with the facts, to uproarious effect.

A History of New York propelled Irving to the heights of literary stardom.
