Enter an enchanted world of kings and castles, heroes and damsels, fairies and dragons, magicians and giants. This collection thrills with nineteen classic romances—old-fashioned stories of high adventure spun from folk tales and sprinkled with history. These are the timeless tales of brave and steadfast knights, beautiful women, and the trials they share. Accompanied by twenty-three illustrations from renowned illustrator H. J.
