Details

Generation after generation, young imaginations find their way to Sherwood Forest to join Robin Hood and his merry men in the fellowship of the greenwood and the fight against injustice. Readers of all ages will delight in this deluxe hardcover volume, which presents the Scribner's Classic edition by Paul Creswick and its brilliant eight color plates by N. C. Wyeth. In addition, a generous selection of black-and-white drawings from Howard Pyle's 1889 edition of The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood are carefully melded in.

Storyteller/artist Howard Pyle was N. C. Wyeth's teacher, and this rendition of their shared vision is a fitting tribute to one of folklore's most beloved traditions.

Includes full color, double page endpapers, gilt-embossed cover titles, and a color plate carefully die-cut and inset into the handsome green cloth binding. Calla once again has done a first class job of replicating, plus enhancing, one of the most famous of all the illustrated books of the Golden Age, and one of the most popular titles by Wyeth and by Pyle.

The author of numerous children's books, Paul Creswick (1866–1947) specialized in telling adventurous tales for young readers. His books include Aelfred's Days, Hasting the Pirate, The Smugglers of Barnard's Head, and most notably, the Scribner's Classic edition of Robin Hood.

A student of Howard Pyle's Brandywine School, Newell Convers Wyeth (1882–1945) ranked among the leading illustrators of popular fiction in the early 20th century. Best known for his illustrations for such classics as Treasure Island, King Arthur, and Rip van Winkle, he was also a prolific illustrator of magazine and advertising images. The Brandywine River Museum in Chadds Ford, Pa, is devoted to his art was well as that of his son and grandson, Andrew and Jamie.

Illustrator, author, and teacher Howard Pyle (1853–1911) was the primary figure of the Brandywine School of illustration. His works epitomize the golden age of American illustration, consisting of tales and images remarkable for their engaging simplicity and penetrating realism.The Delaware Art Museum was established in Wilmington, DE to preserve Pyle's work, and besides being part of their permanent collection, they feature the best of American illustrators.

Note: We just discovered this design error: Chapter 3, which is seven pages long, is REPEATED directly following, but labeled Chapter 4. Then seven pages later, the correct Chapter 4 begins, properly labeled Chapter 4--again. Our best guess is that they simply made a layout error and that in fact no pages are missing--just repeated. We are assuming all copies were done like this until we get confirnation otherwise from the publisher.
