Although the book itself is great, this edition is CRAP!! The pictures, for which Howard Pyle was so famous, have been reproduced in some kind of cheap way so that they don't have ANY of the sharp, crisp lines of the original pictures!!!! Also, the type is TINY!!!! You'd need a magnifying glass to read it comfortably. So DO NOT waste your money on this large format, gray background book with an English castle on the cover. NO, NO, NO!!!!!

This is a nice new copy with a well-made sturdy cover. But I have NEVER seen such small print. There is nothing wrong with my eyesight and I have done a lot of reading in my life, but I will have a very difficult time reading this copy. I think that I will look to buy from another publisher instead of straining my eyes.

Howard Pyle's language is beautiful and draws a vision of a romantic era past. Recommended for any one young or old who enjoys a good tale and a look at not what once was, but what should have been

I have used all of Howard Pyle's books about King Arthur as read aloud books with my kids. My daughter (6) enjoys them as much as my son (8). They have become some of our favorite books. The language is beautiful. We have had to go to the dictionary at times for some of the words that are unfamiliar to us such as maugre, dolor, sucor etc. My two year old is frequently heard saying, "I'm Sir Lancelot of the Lake." We have enjoyed the King Arthur series so much that we hope to read all of Howard Pyle's books.

Great copy.

Clodebd
He dident even spell Lancelot's name right

Enjoyed. Sad romantic tale.

Wonderful stories but slow reading due to the author's use of "olde English." There are also unfamiliar words included that even Kindle did not have a definition for. This book is a challenge, but if any reader is up for wading through these stories of chivalry then there is reward to be had. It would have been nice if the author had chosen modern usage, but he exercised his prerogative to make the book more "authentic." A fun read for those with patience and an interest in knights, knighthood and King Arthur's court.
