Arthurian Tetrology: The Story of King Arthur; The Story of The Champions; The Story of Sir Launcelot; The Holy Grail

by Pyle, Howard

  • Used

  • Hardcover
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1910. First editions, first printings. Hardcover. Near fine. Four 4to volumes, all in original mustard-color cloth with spines and upper boards blocked in black, red and gilt., With black and white illustrations by Howard Pyle. This is essentially a near fine set.


These titles have traditionally suffered cracked inner hinges because the textblock was too heavy for the binding structure. Here, the first, second, and fourth volumes have perfect inner hinges. The remaining volume, 'Launcelot', has a minor and nearly invisible repair to the front inner hinge. Overall this is a near fine set.


Pyle's quintessential treatment of King Arthur. "The books are lavishly decorated with Beardsleyesque headpieces, tail pieces, and full-page pen-and-ink drawings featuring enigmatic ladies, neo-Gothic furnishings and complexly patterned dress and armor."--so does Muriel Whitaker describe this set in the Arthurian Encyclopedia.

Description:
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1910. First editions, first printings. Hardcover. Very good. Four 4to volumes, all in original mustard-color cloth with spines and upper boards blocked in black, red and gilt., With black and white illustrations by Howard Pyle. These titles have traditionally suffered cracked inner hinges because the textblock was too heavy for the binding structure. Here, the second and third volumes have perfect inner hinges. The remaining two have had minor and nearly invisible repairs to the inner hinges. Aside from this, there is minor wear at edges and spine tips, else this is a very good set.
