Boys King Arthur

'The Boy's King Arthur' Illustrations
‘The Boy’s King Arthur’ Illustrations

The Boy’s King Arthur was originally published in 1880. My copy is published in 1922 by Charles Scribner’s Sons, New York, a delightful hardcover edition.

This is Mr. Lannier’s version, illustrated by N. C. Wyeth, an American illustrator, father of American artist Andrew Wyeth.

These Wyeth images are very rich in romance and are very well done. The fourteen images, plus a front–piece of Arthur, who looks like he could use a few inches more of his head, and blond, plus book cover art, inside cover as well as the cover itself, comprise these graphics.

I scanned these images at 400 dpi in jpg format. Some scans have artifacts from the prints in the book.

I hope this taste gets you to find a copy of this really choice book in some nice antiquarian book store. I may see you there…
