Irving, Washington: Old Christmas, v.1, 14 Dec 2008

The complete title is Old Christmas: From the Sketch Book of Washington Irving. This 1886 edition contains five short stories with over a hundred illustrations by Randolph Caldecott.

From Wikipedia:
Washington Irving (April 3, 1783 – November 28, 1859) was an American author, essayist, biographer and historian of the early 19th century. He was best known for his short stories "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and "Rip Van Winkle", both of which appear in his book The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent.
.
.
.
One of Irving's most lasting contributions to American culture is in the way Americans perceive and celebrate Christmas. In his 1812 revisions to A History of New York, Irving inserted a dream sequence featuring St. Nicholas soaring over treetops in a flying wagon—a creation others would later dress up as Santa Claus [see Book II Chapter V here]. Later, in his five Christmas stories in The Sketch Book [this work], Irving portrayed an idealized celebration of old-fashioned Christmas customs at a quaint English manor, which directly contributed to the revival and reinterpretation of the Christmas holiday in the United States. Charles Dickens later credited Irving as a strong influence on his own Christmas writings, including the classic A Christmas Carol.

Welcome to MobileRead, Ezra7_10! I'm sorry you're having problems. I don't have a clue since I don't have a Kindle. But let me suggest that you go here: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=140 and then go to the bottom of the page on the left and click on "New Thread" and post your question. I'm sure someone will be able to help you.

Not sure what method you used, but I keep a fairly current copy of MobileRead's guide on my Kindle and mostly use it to download directly to my Kindle via Whispernet.

If you want, you can also download the file to your PC and use your USB cord to transfer the file to your Download directory of your Kindle.

For Kindle, you need the .prc files from this site. You cannot view them on your PC to my knowledge. Just on the Kindle itself.

Also, look thru your Main Menu carefully. Frequently the title is not exactly the title of the book as it reads on MobileRead.

I had downloaded the file to my PC and used my USB cord, since I am presently out of the States right now. And I did download the .prc file. But for some reason, it didn't show up. Will try again and see. Thanks for the help!

I found out the problem. I downloaded the file, but didn't put it under "Documents." Now all show up fine. Thanks again!
