Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

First published in 1880, The Boy's King Arthur was edited by the American poet Sidney Lanier from Thomas Malory's history of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Lanier said of the Malory work, "I suspect there are few books in our language which lead a reader — whether young or old — on from one paragraph to another with such strong and yet quiet seduction as this."

The Lanier text, slightly abridged, was enhanced in 1917 by the superb illustrations of N.C. Wyeth, whose magnificent pictures capture the drama and romance inherent in the tales of Arthur, Launcelot, Tristram, Gareth and Linet, Galahad and Percival.

The Boy's King Arthur is the latest of the Scribner Illustrated Classics to be reissued. The original canvases have been newly photographed and reproduced with exceptional fidelity for this edition, and the text has been reset in the original typeface.
