Notes

First editions, first impressions. Pyle wrote and illustrated his Arthuriad at the end of a long and very successful career as an illustrator and teacher. He championed book illustration as a particularly American form of artistic expression and rewrote the Arthurian cycle from an unabashed viewpoint of history as a moral education for children.
