For hundreds of years, the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table has been one of the world’s most precious literary possessions. In 1902, the distinguished American artist Howard Pyle undertook to retell this classic. His four-volume work on King Arthur has long been considered one of the outstanding interpretations of the Arthur cycle. This first volume, The Story of King Arthur and His Knights conveys the true spirit of the England of that time, when Arthur Pendragon was overlord of Britain and Merlin was a powerful enchanter, when the sword Excalibur was forged and won, and when the Round Table came into being.

    " I loved these versions of King Arthur's stories. Howard Pyle is a really fun author; his little notes before each part are very funny. The whole book is written in old-English style which I found authentic and just right for the story. I'm excited to read the other King Arthur books by Pyle! "

    " Howard Pyle was an American artist, writer, and teacher. In The Story of King Arthur and his Knights he showed all of these roles. He illustrated the book, he wrote the story, and he teaches life lesson from the experiences of his characters. I really loved reading and learning from the heroes from the legend of King Arthur. "
