Publisher's Description

Readers of all ages will thrill to these timeless tales of chivalry and romance at the court of Camelot. Based on Thomas Malory's classic Le Morte d'Arthur and influenced by the poetry of Tennyson's Idylls of the King, Sir James Knowles's renditions of the ancient legends offer an enchanting account of how a boy who drew a sword from a stone came to rule over a kingdom defended by a brotherhood of knights.
Louis Rhead's evocative black-and-white illustrations, inspired by Celtic art of the sixth century, add depth and resonance to these retellings of the Arthurian myths. The stories range from Merlin's earliest prophecies and the young king's encounter with the Lady of the Lake to the adventures of Sir Lancelot, the quest for the Holy Grail, and Arthur's final battle and voyage to Avalon.
These stories have inspired numerous film adaptations, including the 2017 release King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, directed by Guy Ritchie and starring Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, Eric Bana, Djimon Hounsou, and Annabelle Wallis.
