This is an auction for THE STORY OF KING ARTHUR & HIS KNIGHTS by Howard Pyle.

"FIVE STARS!!! Although Howard Pyle was born in Delaware, he is best known as purveyor of myth and legend to several generation of British and American children - and their parents. Published in 1902, THE STORY OF KING ARTHUR AND HIS KNIGHTS is probably the most comprehensive of the Arthurian legends available in one volume - certainly the most comprehensive for kids. We follow Arthur during his "Sword in the Stone" period, then on to adulthood with a nod at the romantic complications that the play/movie "Camelot" focused on, then later an older Arthur and his followers articulate the legend of the grail."

"FIVE STARS!!! Born before the US Civil War in Wilmington Delaware, he was enchanted by storybooks and the drawings such as Grimm's Faerytales and that influence is clear in his books. So Pyle set about in his twenties to pen stories of Pirates, Robin Hood and Arthur and his knight. His love of these tales was brought to bear as he created "grown-up" storybooks. This is one of my favourite of his works. The illustrations of Arthur, Merline and the Knights of the Table are brilliant. It covers the early tales of Arthur, as his identity was discovered by performing."

"FIVE STARS!!! If you've tried to wade through Mallory's Le Mort d'Arthur recently, you might agree that it can be relatively slow going and tedious reading at times. Pyle's version of the tales are excellent, and can be read much more easily (and in my opinion with more entertainment) than Mallory's book."
