"The Black Arrow: A Tale of the Two Roses is an 1888 novel by Robert Louis Stevenson. It is both an historical adventure novel and a romance.

XXII, no. 656 (Saturday, June 30, 1883) and ending in the issue for Saturday, October 20, 1883 Stevenson had finished writing it by the end of summer. It was printed under the pseudonym Captain George North. He alludes to the time gap between the serialization and the publication as one volume in 1888 in his preface "Critic [parodying Dickens's "Cricket"] on the Hearth": "The tale was written years ago for a particular audience ." The Paston Letters were Stevenson's main literary source for The Black Arrow." Wikipedia. Bookseller Inventory # 028605
