Howard Pyle's stories of King Arthur and his knights are themselves legendary. Colorful tales of chivalry are combined with his own detailed illustrations to create an elegant and beautiful book. This unabridged edition has been completely retypeset and includes all of the original illustrations. It is the hope of the publisher that a new generation of readers will be able to enjoy the Arthurian legends in a beautifully conveyed format. This is the first in Pyle's set of four books on Arthur, covering the birth and life of Arthur and many of his adventures.
