Enchanting tale of chivalry and love recounts the adventures of the most famous knight of King Arthur's Round Table. Fifty-two richly detailed illustrations by the author enhance stories of Launcelot's daring rescue of Queen Guinevere, the tournament at Astolat, the birth of Galahad, and much more. These stories have inspired numerous film adaptations, including the 2017 release Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur, directed by Guy Ritchie and starring Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, Eric Bana, Djimon Hounsou, and Annabelle Wallis.

From the Author:

I am not the author but merely a private publisher. Howard Pyle was born in 1853 and was well known as an illustrator, training men such as N.C. Wyeth. My wife and I wanted to reproduce some of his works to be enjoyed by a younger generation and have entirely re-typeset all the books we published as well as cleaned up some of the images to make them suitable for reprinting. This was a labor of love and we hope you enjoy reading the books as much as we did.

We have reprinted the four books about King Arthur and his knights as well as The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood, all in a blue hardbound format.

About the Author:

Howard Pyle was a successful American author and illustrator, many of whose books are aimed at younger readers. After only a few formal lessons in artistic techniques, Pyle initially began his career creating illustrations for magazines, finally publishing his first work in Harper s Weekly at the age of twenty-five. Pyle s career took off, and he was soon creating his own stories and publishing illustrated books for children. His most famous work is The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood, which was the first cohesive retelling of the medieval legend of Robin Hood. His other famous works include Men of Iron, a tale about knighthood, and a four-volume collection about King Arthur. Howard Pyle died in Florence in 1911 at the age of fifty-eight.
