From the Paper:

"Besides writing American literature Irving published a book entitled Bracebridge Hall depicting the beautiful English countryside where he now was spending great amounts of time. Sir Walter Scott suggested that he travel to Germany to collect German folklore. Irving took Scott's advice and moved to Dresden where he studied German, viewed German art and collected new material for his next work. He also wrote plays for the court of King Frederick Augustus I. After living in Germany as a visiting celebrity, Irving moved to Paris to begin compiling his notes into what finally became the book Tales of a Traveler in 1824. ""
