The American illustrator and author Howard Pyle is best known for his celebrated children’s books. His magazine and book illustrations are regarded as among the finest of the turn-of-the-century period in the Art Nouveau style. Pyle achieved especial fame as an accomplished and original illustrator of historical legends and fairy stories, noted for the vivid richness and historical accuracy of his work — both as a writer and an artist. Many of Pyle’s children’s stories are now regarded as American classics, including ‘The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood’, ‘Otto of the Silver Hand’, ‘Jack Ballister’s Fortunes’ and his magical tales of Arthurian legend.  For the first time in publishing history, this eBook presents Pyle’s complete published works, with hundreds of illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
