The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood by Howard Pyle (Early Printing)
Authors: Howard Pyle
Location: New York
Publisher: Charles Scribner's Sons
Features: Follows Robin Hood as he becomes an outlaw after a conflict with foresters and through his many adventures and runs with the law. Each chapter tells a different tale of Robin as he recruits Merry Men, resists the authorities, and aids his fellow man. The popular stories of Little John defeating Robin in a fight with staffs, of Robin's besting at the hands of Friar Tuck, and of his collusion with Allan a Dale all appear. In the end, Robin and his men are pardoned by King Richard the Lionheart and his band are incorporated into the king's retinue, much to the dismay of the Sheriff of Nottingham.
Book Condition: Good: Bumping and rubbing to corners and spine ends. Crack in the middle with several book signatures loose but still present.
