Headless History: Nineteenth-Century French Historiography of the Revolution 1st Edition by Linda Orr (Author)Cited by: headless history: nineteenth-century french historiography by linda orr **mint**. Book is in Like New / near Mint Condition. Will include dust jacket if it originally came with one.

The book starts with the origins of the story by Washington Irving, then goes into how Irving ends up vanquishing the Headless Horseman. With his newfound monster hunting skills, he starts to research other headless horsemen and this leads him to Europe and beyond. He teams up with the Brothers Grimm to take on vengeful spirits/5.

Even from their early origins, however, stories were told of their headless nature. Herodotus who lived between and BC wrote in his Histories that they were known as the akephaloi or those “without a head” and that they lived on the eastern edge of Libya.

It turns out that headless instruments of many types have existed for a very long time. Many different designers have employed this feature on their instruments in the past, and today there are many, many luthiers that have incorporated it into their designs, but to our knowledge, Ned Steinberger was the first to really popularize this design.

Everyone knows the story of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow with its tale of Ichabod Crane the slight, yet smart, schoolteacher, and the menacing Headless Horseman.

But I wonder how many people know that its author, Washington Irving, drew inspiration from real-life events that took place in and around Tarrytown, New York.

Tales of headless horsemen can be traced to the Middle Ages, including stories from the Brothers Grimm and the Dutch and Irish legend of the “Dullahan” or “Gan Ceann,” a Grim Reaper-like. But he was definitely not the first to, at least verbally, tell the tale of a headless, ghostly rider.

An aspect of the back-story that I find most intriguing was highlighted by Judith Richardson in her recent book Possessions: The History and Uses of Haunting in the Hudson Valley. The Headless Horseman is also a novel by Mayne Reid, first published in monthly serialized form during andand subsequently published as a book inbased on the author's adventures in the United States.

" The Headless Horseman " or " A Strange Tale of Texas " was set in Texas and based on a south Texas folk tale. -- Andrew McKie THE TELEGRAPH "Land of the Headless is a darkly satirical tale that extrapolates an absurd idea into something weirdly plausible.

This is not escapist adventure but a dystopian vision in the tradition of Swift, Orwell and Atwood against the cruellest extremes of human stupidity."/5(10). The Headless Way.
