King Arthur's stories are timeless tales that have been told countless times since the fifteenth century when Sir Thomas Malory introduced them in Le Morte d'Arthur. The basis for the upcoming film, this collection is retold by famed American poet and author Sidney Lanier. He imbues the legendary stories with action and adventure, accompanied by N. C. Wyeth's breathtaking illustrations. Readers will enjoy the daring exploits of Arthur and his knights. You'll find the tale of how Arthur pulled the sword from the stone to become king of England and be introduced to his brave knights Sirs Launcelot, Gawaine, Tristram, Galahad, and more. Their search for the Holy Grail through the tragic final battle will thrill you and capture your imagination. The Arthurian legends are coursing with drama and adventure. Instilled with themes of loyalty, conflict, romance, and courage, these stories will fill readers of any age with wonder. Experience them in this edition of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.
Beautifully printed and slipcased, this elegantly produced collection of three classic Irving masterpieces captures the magic of folktales and makes the perfect gift for the holiday season. All three of these time-honored Washington Irving tales first appeared in his best-selling The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. in 1819. The high-spirited tales Rip Van Winkle and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow present memorable folk characters that have become part of America's literary lexicon, while Old Christmas preserves the nostalgia, warmth, and joy of Merrie Olde English Christmas traditions.Each of the three hardcover cloth-bound books, adorned with ribbon markers and slipcased into a handsome set, are beautifully illustrated with original paintings and drawings: Rip Van Winkle (N.C. Wyeth); The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (Arthur Rackham); and Old Christmas (Randolph Caldecott).
